This sweet potato recipe has been one of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes since I was a child. The original recipe included butter, cream, and brown sugar. I promise you won't miss all the unhealthy ingredients! The orange juice and cinnamon do just the trick! I hope this healthy and easy recipe becomes one of your family's favorites too!
