How to Make Frozen Sweet Potato Fries in Air Fryer
You can simply throw the frozen sweet potato fries in an air fryer for 15 min, shake them halfway through and they'd come out fine, but I also want to recommend how to make your frozen sweet potato fries taste even better!
- Open the bag of frozen sweet potato fries and add to a big bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of oil and mix.
- Add frozen sweet potato fries to the air fryer basket and set the air fryer to 390 degrees for 15 minutes. This step will largely depend on how big and how hot your air fryer gets. I have the 8-quart ninja foodie so it fits an entire bag of fries easily, but if you have a smaller air frier don't crowd the fries too much or they won't get the proper air circulation.
- Shake the basket halfway.
- Plate the fries and top with grated Violife parmesan and chopped green onions or chopped parsley!
- Serve with chipotle mayo.
It's really that simple and will make your fries that much better!
Kitchen Equipment I used for recipe:
Ninja Foodie 9-1 Air Fryer Unit - Okay I'll be the first to admit I was an air fryer hater before but now I am the ultimate air fryer truther! This is the unit I use and it's unreal because it comes with an instant pot, steamer, dehydrator, sautee, and more all in one unit! It comes in a couple of different sizes (I got the 8 quarts and it's huge but I love it).

- Open the bag of frozen sweet potatoes and add to a big bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of oil and mix until evenly coated.
- Add frozen sweet potato fries to the air fryer basket and turn on the air fryer to 390 degrees for 15 minutes.
- Shake the basket around after 10 minutes.
- Plate the fries and top with chopped chives/parsley and grated Violife parmesan. Serve with chipotle mayo.
- I have the 8-quart ninja foodie so it's massive and can fit a full bag of fries in it at once. If you have a smaller air fryer split it up and don't crowd the fries too much!

So this is the nutrition profile for the frozen sweet potato fries that I bought but each company will have slightly different nutrition profile depending what they put into it so just keep that in mind.
The thing with buying anything from big companies or prepared meals is they're usually processed to all hell and during the processing they strip most of the nutrition out of the food. If we compared these frozen sweet potato fries to just a regular nutrition profile of a sweet potato the comparison would be stark.
Actually lets do that!
Nutrition profile for the same amount of just a regular baked sweet potato:
- 76.5 Cal
- 17.6 Carbs
- 3 g of Fiber
- 0.1 g Fat
- 1.7 g protein
- 544% Vitamin A
- 7% iron
The unprocessed sweet potato beats the processed sweet potato by 50-100% in every category.
Now that's not to say these frozen sweet potato fries are the worst things you can ever eat, but I think it's important to note that processed foods should be eaten in moderation because a lot of their nutritional value does get stripped away.
Sodium is a big time offender in processed foods and something that should be watched carefully. Really easy to go over how much sodium you're taking in without realising it!
There are certainly worse things you could eat than these frozen sweet potato fries in an air fryer. For example, simply deep frying them instead would further destroy their nutritional value.
Anywho they do provide a few good things. High in vitamin A, which helps with vision, lunch/kidney function, and reproduction... 😉
Has a couple of grams of fiber and for a population that is chronically not getting enough fiber (only about 5% of the population do) every gram counts!
