Sweet Potato Pie Potion

We’re brewing a magical Sweet Potato Pie Potion for this evening’s All Hallow’s Eve festivities. It’s a potent formula made with an earthy turmeric ginger Vosges Haut-Chocolat bar to warm your soul in the cold, dark night. Other ingredients required include Medjool dates and cinnamon for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties; hemp hearts for plant-based protein; and sweet potato for its prebiotic fiber to fuel the 12 live and active probiotic cultures in our limited-edition pumpkin spice kefir. The nutrients in this enchanted elixir are sure to protect your guts and make you immune to scary spirits this Halloween.

A one-cup serving of sweet potato (cooked, with the skin on) contains:

  • More than four times the RDA of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene) – vitamin A is crucial for eye health, as well as a strong immune system and healthy bone development.
  • 35% of daily recommended amount vitamin C. Vitamin C not only supports immune health, it also helps the body make collagen, which is used throughout the body for tissue and ligament repair (and more!)
  • About half of the RDA of manganese – manganese helps regulate blood sugar and supports the proper function of the thyroid (which can help keep your weight in check).
  • A good dose of magnesium – magnesium supports heart and blood vessel health (as well as quite a few other things), but it also promotes relaxation and helps combat stress and anxiety.
  • They’re also a good source of potassium, vitamin D, vitamin B6, and biotin. Add that to the four grams of heart-healthy fiber and nearly three grams of protein.
Servings: 1 - 2


  1. Cut the sweet potato in cubes and boil until soft, drain and add to a blender.
  2. Add in pumpkin spice kefir, dates, ginger, turmeric, ground cinnamon, hemp hearts and a handful of ice in a blender, and blend until smooth
  3. Melt down the ginger turmeric chocolate by stove top. (Put a smaller pot half full of water on the stove top. In a bigger pot add the chocolate to it and place overtop the smaller pot full of water. Bring the water to a boil and stir consistently until the chocolate is melted.)
  4. Fill the bottom of your glass with chunky granola, top with layers of the sweet potato mixture, pumpkin spice kefir, and melted chocolate.
  5. Top with almond butter, chia seeds, and crushed pecans.
