If you do not have canned or cooked sweet potato available, preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Scrub a sweet potato and poke holes in it with a fork. Bake on a sheet of aluminum foil for 45-60 minutes or until tender. Remove from oven, slice open, and scoop out flesh once it has cooled.
Combine the sweet potato flesh and coconut milk in a blender and blend until smooth. Alternatively, you can skip this step but the final product may not be as smooth.
Transfer this to a small saucepan and add the maple syrup, cinnamon, and ginger. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until warm.
Serve warm in a mug with a sprinkle of spices. Enjoy!
