Roasted mashed sweet potatoes and bananas


1 ½ pounds of sweet potato

2 medium bananas, peeled and halved

2 tablespoons orange juice

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Red pepper flakes, to taste

3 tablespoons brown sugar


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Poke holes in sweet potatoes and bake for one hour or until soft. Remove from oven and set aside to cool. Peel when cool to touch. Coat a baking dish with cooking spray and put in the halved bananas. Bake uncovered until fruit is soft and juicy, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and pour the orange juice over bananas. Stir to scrape the drippings and mash the banana well.  In a large mixing bowl, add the bananas, sweet potatoes, spices and brown sugar. Using an electric mixer, blend until smooth. Transfer to an ovenproof serving bowl and return to the oven for another 10 minutes or until warm.
