A good bowl of Sweet Potato Dessert lies in the quality of the sweet potatoes as well as the composition of the ingredients. My late mother has always liked to make sweet potato dessert back then when I was a kid, in additional to sweet potato, there is another type of root vegetables that you will need to include to enhance the overall flavor of this dessert, read on!

A little about Sweet Potatoes

Sweet Potato is a type of root vegetable (read about the different types of vegetables). We will be using the purple and orange-colored sweet potato. The orange variety of sweet potato is instead called a “yam” in some parts of North America, whereas Yam in Asia is very different than Sweet Potatoes.

From my experience, the best tasting sweet potatoes are crowned from Japan, they taste absolutely sweet, fragrance, and not to forget they are pretty costly too. If money is not an issue, try to opt for Japanese Sweet Potato for the best outcome of this dessert.

I’ve got some request asking how to make Bubur Cha Cha. Bubur Cha Cha is relatively simple, but then I thought, why don’t I make a basic Sweet Potatoes Dessert Soup recipe and from that recipe, with a little twerk can be turned into Bubur Cha Cha, Chinese Style Sweet Potatoes Dessert or a Mix Beans Sweet Potatoes with Coconut Milk Dessert! Check out how easy it is to make this Basic Sweet Potatoes Dessert!
