Sometimes the best recipes are the ones that are super simple. This recipe will remind you of Christmas or the holidays anytime you make it as when you perform the quick release on your Instant Pot®, the whole house smells like cinnamon and nutmeg. The apples virtually disappear in this recipe to form a delicious sauce that you can drizzle over the top of your perfect sweet potatoes. I hope you love as  much as I do.

Prep Time: 5 minutes, Steam Time: 10 minutes; Total Time: 15 minutes

Serving Size: 4


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 organic apples, sliced
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • Juice of 1 lemon, squeezed


1. Fill your Instant Pot® all the above ingredients, pouring the water over the ingredients last to mix in all the cinnamon and nutmeg.

2. Set your Instant Pot® to steam on high pressure and set it to five minutes. When you hear the beep, do a quick release and open the pot and serve while hot! It’s that simple. Enjoy!
