Is there a more perfect dish than Pritikin-style sweet potatoes – rich, satisfying, creamy tasting yet low in calorie density, and so wonderfully nutritious. An extra bonus in this recipe is the luscious tang from the caramelized pineapple.
Scrub potatoes. Wrap each potato in aluminum foil. Roast potatoes in oven until soft (about 45 minutes to 60 minutes, depending on size of potatoes). Cool a little, then peel.
In a small nonstick skillet over medium heat, add pineapple, apple juice concentrate, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, mash potatoes with a whisk (wire whip).
Mix in caramelized pineapple mixture until well combined.
