Options

If you need a sweetener use brown rice syrup, raw honey, or pure maple syrup to taste. I personally do not need any sweetener.

Use butternut squash cut in chunks or pumpkin instead of sweet potato. You could also use canned pumpkin puree.

You can use vegan milk of your choice if desired

Roasting nuts removes excess fat from them and makes the nuts easier to digest.

Substitute almonds, sunflower seeds, hazelnuts for the walnuts, or use a combination of your favorite nuts or seeds.
