Easy Mango Guacamole

One of our favorite snacks is a healthy home made Mango Guacamole.Β We love dipping sweet potato chips, roasted carrots, homemade pita chips, and now these delicious Japanese sweet potatoes.

So I accidentally bought a white Japanese sweet potato with all my others at Whole Foods this week. We’ve tried them before and liked it ok. But oh my! We sliced and roasted them this time and dipped in our mango guac…. so, so good. A must try and perfect for game night tomorrow πŸ˜‰

White Japanese sweet potatoes are a little less sweet than the usual sweet potato that we are used to eating. They have more of a subtle flavor.

The Japanese sweet potato is an excellent source of fiber,Β Vitamin C, manyΒ other vitamins and minerals (like A, E, B-6, potassium, calcium, iron).Β They are lower in calories than other potatoes, but because of the fiber they keep you fuller longer.
