Baked Sweet Potato Skins

These can be the center of the main course , the life of the side dish or anything else in between. Heavenly and creamy loaded sweet potatoes with a mexican flare!

This one is a classic for all dietary preferences and was created as gluten free, dairy free and REBOOT Cleanse friendly. If you want to keep it real CHEESY (with dairy) make sure to opt for organic, grass fed cheddar shreds. When I do buy shreds for making dishes for parties or specific dinners, I choose this one.

  • While potatoes cook, make guacamole by mashing avocado in a medium bowl, adding tomato, onion, jalepeno, cilantro and salt and pepper.

*If using dairy opt for, Organic cheddar shreds here and top with a grass fed sour cream. 

Here you can either combine the guacamole and potato you scooped out separately in a bowl to make a mixture. Then fill the shells with this mixture or you can just use scoop each filling into the shells separately with beans and guac and use the remaining sweet potato to add

When I first learned about dairy and how when in excess, can lead to inflammation in the body, and for me was a root cause to acne related issues and hormone disruption, I discovered Daiya (a plant based dairy alternative) It’s my favorite go-to for shredded cheese.

Here we have it, now time to top off with with these loaded sweet taters with some dairy free CHEEZY shreds that have a bit of a different flavor but melts JUST like cheese does. I’ve been using these shreds for about three years now and I’ve definitely became accustomed to the difference and I’m totally okay with it. It makes cooking dairy-free a breeze!
