For something a little different try this homemade sweet potato and ginger ice cream. You get the cold sweetness of ice cream made with sweet potatoes and ginger for an ice cream that is a treat and also a veg. I like a lot of the Japanese ice cream flavors that are so different that what we as Americans typically eat in ice cream flavors.
Green tea ice cream for instance. It has a great taste and is not as super sweet as say strawberry or vanilla. While this one would be more sweet since the potato is sweet it still is something totally out of the ordinary in ice cream and sure to please. You could even add some nutmeg and it would taste similar to sweet potato pie.
Our One Acre Farm shares this recipe. What a great way to add sweet potatoes to the dessert portion of a meal. This would be a great ice cream to serve all through the fall, especially around Thanksgiving. Sweet potato and ginger ice cream is one that you can serve to your children and know that not only are they enjoying their ice cream but they are getting a good dose of vitamin A because the sweet potato is chock full of vitamin A.
