1 large white Hannah sweet potato (for 1 heaping cup)
6 Tbs melted unrefined coconut oil
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2-3 Tbs water
Zest of 1 large lemon
1/8 tsp pink or sea salt
Preheat oven to 400. Bake sweet potato until tender about an hour or so and then scoop flesh from skins. Place heaping 1 cup mashed potato into blender with oil, syrup, lemon zest, salt and 2 Tbs water and blend until creamy. Add more water if needed, careful to not make too thin (frosting will thicken). Place in refrigerator and store for up to 1 week.
