Sweet Potato Balls with Okara

Sweet Potato Balls with Okara

Just combine the mashed sweet potatoes, okara and condensed milk. A simple snack that can be made easily without an oven and is full of dietary fibre. Also great for a light meal.

Ingredients: makes 16 large (10 g) or 32 small (5 g)

Sweet potato
100 g (after peeling and cooking)
Fresh okara
60 g
Condensed milk

as desired (see Helpful Hints)


1. Soften the sweet potato by boiling or microwaving, then mash. Heat the okara in the microwave at 500-600 W for 2 minutes and set aside.
2. Add all the ingredients to a bowl and knead together, washing your hands well beforehand.
3. Roll into whatever sized balls you like, and they're done. Enjoy with a drink.
4. I rolled it into small balls (5 g) and put them in a bowl of plain yogurt, and it was really delicious.
5. You can also sprinkle with some cinnamon.
6. When making with skim milk, replace the condensed milk for 3 tablespoons skim milk and 1.5 tablespoons of sugar.
7. Addendum: Store in the refrigerator. As they include okara, eat them up as soon as possible.

Story Behind this Recipe

I was going to bake cookies using sweet potatoes and okara, but the dough tasted so good that I just turned that into a recipe.
