This odd little combination of a fool, a trifle, and a parfait was an experiment for Thanksgiving 2013. I used purple sweet potatoes instead of the standard orange variety, lots of whipped cream, and layers of ground, toasted coconut and macadamias, with a meringue on top. It turned out well! The kids were especially enthusiastic fans.

For future iterations I'll probably skip the big trifle bowl and make single servings in a wine glass.

Yes, you can definitely mod this recipe to use regular orange sweet potatoes. I'd probably swap the nut mixture to pecans as well.

Schritt 1: Tools and Ingredients

Tools:
Mixer (stand or hand-held)
Trifle bowl or glass single-serving units (wine glasses, 1/2 pint jam jars, etc)
Spatula
Baking sheet
Aluminum Foil

Ingredients:
Purple (Okinawan) sweet potatoes (3 cups cooked)
3 cups heavy cream
1 teaspoon + 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup + 3 Tablespoons + 1/3 cup brown sugar
6 Tablespoons white sugar
1 cup coconut cream
1 cup macadamia nuts
1 cup grated coconut (unsweetened)
1/4 teaspoon + 1/4 teaspoon + 1/8 teaspoon + pinch allspice
1/8 teaspoon + 1/2 teaspoon + 1/8 teaspoon salt, more to taste

Schritt 2: Whip Cream

Combine in mixer bowl:
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
Whip until cream forms stiff peaks. Taste test: it should have good vanilla/allspice flavor, but not be too terribly sweet.

Schritt 3: Whip sweet potato

Bake sweet potatoes at 350F for 1-2 hours, or until nice and squishy. Allow to cool, then scoop out and mash the flesh.

Combine 3 cups roasted purple sweet potato with 1 cup coconut cream, 3 Tablespoons brown sugar, 1/8 teaspoon allspice, and 1/2 teaspoon salt, then mix thoroughly. If you've got a KitchenAid mixer, use the paddle attachment.

Next, add 2 cups whipped cream, and whisk everything together until well-mixed and fluffy. Swap to the whisk attachment if you're using a KitchenAid. Taste and adjust seasoning - add more salt or sugar until you want to just eat the sweet potato mix with a spoon.
That sounds, and looks, awesome! I've never seen purple sweet potatoes before. I've made mashed potatoes with "regular" purple potatoes before and those were fun.
Purple sweet potatoes taste significantly different than regular sweet potatoes, unlike purple regular potatoes which mostly just look awesome. :) Get some and just try roasting them first - you'll love them.
You're right they did look awesome but really had no difference in taste. I'll definitely have to try purple sweet potatoes now that I know they actually taste different. Now to find somewhere that carries them. I don't think I've ever seen them in my local Kroger (though maybe I just wasn't looking).
This looks great Canida!
