    Description

    You'd never know it from tasting it, but this rich and velvety mousse is full of sweet potatoes. They not only provide body to the dessert, but they add a healthy dose of beta-carotene, an antioxidant that's good for eye health. So now you can eat with your eyes and for your eyes.
