I hope you are enjoying the beautiful autumn weather.  Feels like it's time for sweet potato pudding.  

I have included the recipe and video demonstration below along with a bonus.

Many of you know how much I love making (and eating) fermented foods, like sauerkraut and kimchi.  My new favorite is coconut yogurt and it's fun and easy to make.  

It tastes great, swirled into the sweet potato pudding:
