This has been a family favorite at our house since my children were small. My son is an adult now but still requests it. I use less sugar and marshmallows than traditional recipes, but it still has all of the fiber and beta-carotene goodness of the sweet potatoes. Sometimes a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine (fiber, vitamins, minerals) go down!
