Fall is here, and sweet potatoes are everywhere. If you’re sick of recycling the same few recipes, why not try something new and exciting, like our Stuffed Sweet Potatoes recipe? These sweet potatoes put a twist on familiar flavors without sacrificing the comfort of autumn ingredients. And because it’s a SkinnyMs. recipe, you know it’s guilt-free! These potatoes are literally bursting with nutrients. That’s because we stuffed these spuds with superfoods like spinach and quinoa for protein, fiber, and essential vitamins and minerals. Plus, we added some sweet and naturally-energizing cranberries. The creamy goat cheese topping adds a delicious tangy zing, along with even more vitamins that you won’t get from traditional cow’s milk cheese.

Not only do these stuffed sweet potatoes bring the unique taste of fall to any dinner menu, but they add unexpected fun to your holiday spread. And since they’re so easy to make, we’re sure you’ll make them one of your go-to recipes this fall. So go ahead, try them today!
