Sweet Potato Casserole
Sweet potatoes are loaded with vitamin A, a great source of manganese, vitamin B-6, potassium, iron and copper. They have more fiber and protein than a white potato and they have a very low glycemic index. Try them in this no-bake version of a traditional holiday favorite. It’s sure to make your taste buds sing. Merry Christmas!
