This gluten free sweet potato bread pudding is a delicious dessert that can be enjoyed anytime.
Your family will love this quick and easy bread pudding recipe.
I don’t know why I only make bread puddings in the fall.
They really can be enjoyed year round. This gluten free sweet potato bread pudding recipe is a great example. Sweet potato can be bought all year long… and it is packed with nutrition!
My kids are weird, they won’t eat ends of the gluten free bread loaves. And worse, they leave empty bags of these ends in the freezer. I gather the ends up and consolidate these ends and then store them in freezer bags all year long.
Do your kids do this??

Sweet Potato Puree
You can use canned sweet potato puree or fresh sweet potato puree. I used canned in this recipe because it has a much smoother texture.
Tip: If you prefer to use fresh roasted sweet potatoes, Make sure you add a little water and then blend them so that they are smoother and without lumps!
How to Roast and Puree Sweet Potato For Baking:
- Wash sweet potatoes (yams will work too in this recipe).
- Pierce the top of each sweet potato with a fork several times to allow hot steam to vent out. (*Super important so you don’t burn your fingers!)
- Bake at 400F degrees for 40-45 minutes, longer if your sweet potatoes are very thick.
- Allow the sweet potatoes to cool.
- When they are cool, make a slit down each sweet potato lengthwise.
- Scoop out the sweet potato into a food processor. Add 2 tablespoons of water.
- Whip the sweet potato until it is completely smooth and creamy.
Did you know you can make a delicious dairy-free whipped cream with just a can of cold coconut milk? Just put a can in the refrigerator for a few hours. Whip it up like regular whipping cream.
- To make this recipe dairy-free, substitute coconut oil for butter.
- To make this recipe refined sugar-free, substitute coconut sugar for the brown sugar.

That is completely up to you!! I tend to serve it cold, that way the whipped cream doesn’t melt :-).
