Bake sweet potato in the oven at 350°F for 15-20 minutes. Another cooking method is to boil or cook the sweet potato in the microwave until completely soft and easy to mash.
Cut the top of pumpkin off and remove all seeds inside. Place 2 tablespoons of coconut oil on the inside of the pumpkin. Place lid back on and put in the oven. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-30 minutes until the inside of the pumpkin is fully cooked and the outside begins to turn golden brown.
Remove pumpkin from oven and scoop out baked pumpkin, but leave enough to keep the shape of the pumpkin to reuse it. Place the scooped-out pumpkin in a Vitamix with sweet potato, coconut cream, pumpkin spice, salt, Nature's Eats Cashews, and remaining coconut oil. Process on low speed until completely mashed.
Place pumpkin and sweet potato mash back into the pumpkin, put lid on top, and place back in the oven at 425°F for 5-10 minutes.
Top the inside with Nature's Eats Pumpkin Seeds or Nature's Eats Pecans and shredded parmesan cheese or goat cheese.
The blend of sweet creaminess from the sweet potato and pumpkin combined with the cheese and slight crunch from pumpkin seeds is incredible. Each bite is so creamy and smooth leaving you with a mouthful of holiday flavor.
