This vegan sweet potato pudding is a fantastic super easy plant-based holiday dish.

Roast your sweet potato to get the best flavor. Cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg deliver those signature holiday flavors, orange juice and zest adds a tangy and sweet note, and maple syrup adds a nice smokey caramel note.

Once again, "tweak-to-taste" and find the blend that is right for you. Just like the cranberry pudding, my favorite way to serve this pudding is straight out of the blender carriage where it has been warmed slightly by the friction heat of the blades. But you will get more of a pudding consistency if you chill it in the fridge. It also tastes better the next day when the flavors have had a chance to infuse.

Serve with a dollop of cashew cream and some orange zest.
