1 1/2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and diced

1 cup Bhakti Chai Unsweetened Concentrate

4 cups chicken stock

1/2 tsp Kosher salt

1/3 tsp ground cardamom

May use an immersion blender or hand blender if needed, although the end product may be a little chunkier.


Combine sweet potatoes and Bhakti Chai with chicken broth in large pot. Boil over high heat until sweet potatoes are fork tender. Drain sweet potatoes, reserving liquid in a bowl. In food processor, puree potatoes until smooth, adding back chicken broth as needed to desired thickness. Add cinnamon, cloves, brown sugar, salt, white pepper and cardamom; pulse to combine. Add heavy cream and apple juice and pulse to incorporate. Reheat if needed, do not boil.
