Tips when making this dish:

  • Bake your purple sweet potato until it is soft.
    I cleaned and covered the purple sweet potatoes I used in this recipe with aluminum foil. Then, I baked them at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 50 minutes to an hour. The size of the purple sweet potato will determine how long it needs to be baked. When the time is up, carefully remove the foil-covered purple sweet potato and squeeze it to see if it gives. If it is soft, then it is done. If not, bake it for about 15 more minutes or so.
  • The baked purple sweet potato does not need to be mashed very well.
    By this I mean, don’t spend too much time making sure the purple sweet potato is completely mashed and creamy. This will be mixed with other ingredients and baked again so everything will be nice and soft then.
  • Add the topping mid-bake.
    This helps the topping not get too crispy or burned. And, it helps the topping stay on the top.
Getting ready to bake purple sweet potato souffle.

A little while before I first posted this recipe, I managed to go off refined sugar for a couple of months around Halloween. And, I even shocked myself when I didn’t feel the need to ransack store shelves the day after for 50% off Halloween Candy! But, I feel like I jumped into an alternate universe on my being-refined-sugar-free-journey, as now my taste buds seem to think that sweet potato trumps chocolate!

So, I made a refined sugar-free purple sweet potato soufflé!

By the way, I recently harvested 21 purple sweet potatoes from my garden, so I have been using them in everything from roasted purple sweet potatoes to purple sweet potato porridge.

Variations and Substitutions…

  • If you do not have any purple sweet potatoes, you can use regular orange sweet potatoes in this recipe too. In fact, There has been many a time when I have used the latter instead.
  • While I used full-fat coconut milk for a creamy texture, you can use your favorite milk choice instead.
  • I used vegan butter in this recipe, but feel free to use whatever butter you have on hand.
  • I was trying to keep this dish refined sugar-free for the most part and used monkfruit sweeterner in it. I used Classic monkfruit sweetener in the souffle part. And I used golden monkfruit sweetener (which I have found works like brown sugar) in the topping.
  • Not a fan of pecans? No worries! You could use walnuts instead of pecans.
  • Cranberries add a nice tartness to this dish. However, you can leave them out or substitute them with fresh cranberries too.

I would not substitute the spices unless you would like to add a bit of almond extract to this as well.

  1. A sweet potato souffle, eh? I don’t think I’ve ever had that…but it sounds incredible! I’m not a big fan of sweetened sweet potatoes (like the ones with marshmallows on top), so I think I would be all about this one, Shashi. Plus, the cranberries in there give this one an awesome little tart twist. Perfect for Thanksgiving! Thanks for the idea…yum! I hope you guys have an awesome weekend down there in the A! 🙂

  2. Never made or had souffle. Your description of the sugar sounds like a crazy overload of sweetness, so good on you for trying something different. An interesting mixture of ingredients, to make what sounds like a yummy treat.

  3. Isn’t it so crazy how our tastebuds change? I used to have the craziest sweet tooth and boast about how nothing was too sweet for me, but ever since cleaning up my diet a handful of years ago, I just can’t handle the sweetness like I used to be able to. That’s not to say that I don’t like my sweets, but now it’s easy to satisfy the craving with sweeter fruits or homemade things rather than all the candy and junk I ate before. Hope you’re having an amazing Friday, Shashi!

  4. You rebel, you!! I’m glad it all turned out so wonderfully–and tasty! I love that you made this a dairy free option. 🙂 I have never thought of using sweetened condensed coconut milk! I’m so fascinated now… 😉 This looks absolutely perfect for Thanksgiving, Shashi. So soft, deliciously textured and perfectly sweet. 🙂 Hope you have an awesome weekend, my dear! 🙂

  5. I had no idea there was such a thing as sweetened condensed coconut milk. Guess we have been out of the real world a little too long. LOL Love this idea as part of a autumn spread. I think this might be the kind of dish you just keep eating it by the spoonful. Sharing, of course!

  6. Wow, this sounds amazing! I’ve only ever had savoury sweet potato, but I’ve been dying to try something sweeter now that all the Thanksgiving recipes have been popping up!

  7. Never heard of a sweet potato souffle before, I can tell this is delicious. I went off sugar for about 5 days and then started back but I have cut way back. Hardest thing to do I think. Love that you used condenesed coconut milk.

  8. Oh, I do like sweet potato, but the fun thing is that I’ve only used it in savory dishes such as salads, hash, etc. Well, I’ve made pancakes as well. But I’ve never had a sweet potato pie ir souffle in my life. With nuts, coconut, and cranberries? Sounds grear indeed! Would you like to send me some as your Thanksgiving present, please? If I like it, I’ll make it myself…and send some to you as my Christmas gift))

  9. I’m really glad you linked this post, Shashi! We actually just ended up with a bag of sweet potatoes by accident – I bought the wrong thing at the store. Oops. Now I have a bag of sweet potatoes. We were thinking of just roasting them, but I like the sound of this souffle. With the cranberry addition, it makes it very holiday appropriate!!
