Purple Sweet Potato Pies

PURPLE sweet potato pie 🥔🥔

Anyone ever tried purple sweet potato before? It’s a locally grown staple of Hawaiian cuisine and is super rich in flavour and PACKED with nutrition.

Purple sweet potatoes are also known as Okinawan potatoes, and they share the same starchy sweetness of orange sweet potatoes. Like orange sweet potatoes, they are lower in carbohydrates and fat (than white potatoes) and an excellent source of fiber and vitamins. Additionally, purple sweet potatoes are packed with anthocyanins, which may have anti-inflammatory properties. 😘😘

I absolutely LOVE this recipe, it’s so sweet and delicious, I hope you like it too 🙂
