  • Air Fryer


  • 8 ounces frozen sweet potato fries Half of a 15-20 ounce bag.
  • A pinch of salt optional
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper optional


  • Coat the air fryer basket with a high heat oil (like avocado oil) to prevent sticking.
  • Spread frozen sweet potato fries out in a single layer.
  • Sprinkle with salt (optional).
  • Lightly dust half of the sweet potato fries with cayene pepper (only if your kids like spice).
  • Set your air fryer to 400°. Air fry for 7 minutes.
  • Check the 'fries'. If they aren't crispy enough for you, place them in the air fryer for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the sweet potato fries from the air fryer and let cool slightly before serving.


Follow the manufacturers instructions on coating the air fryer basket to prevent food from sticking. Typically a high heat oil (like avocado oil) is recommended.
You may need to make sweet potato fries in batches to avoid overcrowding in the air fryer.
If your kids do not like spice, do not add the cayenne pepper. It only adds a little heat (which balances out the sweetness of the sweet potatoes nicely), but some kids are sensitive to even the slightest hint of spice.
Our kids prefer the Chobani brand of Greek yogurt. I suggest encouraging your kids to try dipping the sweet potato fries in yogurt a as a dip.
Ketchup also works well as a dip and is safe for kids with a milk allergy!
If your air fryer is preheated, check on the 'fries' about two minutes sooner to keep them from burning.
Ideas for what to dip sweet potato fries in: ketchup or coconut, lime, or vanilla flavored Greek yogurt. Yum!
