Coconut and sweet potato pudding

Coconut and sweet potato pudding

A new twist on the old standard of sweet potato pie but no crust. This has just a hint of coconut flavor and is not overly sweet. You will love it! Great side dish for your Thanksgiving feast!

Excellent dish! I made this for dessert and, after just one spoonful, my wife insisted "you gotta make this for my mother!"

Even my kids ate his one! It could be less sweet, but the coconut flavor is fantastic!
