Recipe} Clean Mashed Sweet Potatoes

I'm on a mission to remodel Thanksgiving. We're removing the guilt, but keeping the flavor!! When I think of Thanksgiving dinner, I first think of turkey and then I think of mashed potatoes and then sweet potato casserole. My family fights over these items every year. But seriously, the thought of all the carbs, sugar, fat and calories… ugh it's killer. So, I decided to take two traditional favorites and put them together. 

You can read about the nutrition of White Potatoes vs Sweet Potatoes in my previous post.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes


Serves 4 You can easily double, or triple this recipe for a larger group!

2 large Sweet Potatoes
1/4 C Almond Milk
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Cinnamon 
1 Tbsp Organic Maple Syrup
Himalayan salt to taste

Wash potatoes well and then cut them into large chunks and place inside of a pot, then cover with water. **You can remove skin or leave it, it's up to you.

Bring to boil, on medium heat and let cook until potatoes are tender.  The potatoes are done once you can easily stab the potato with a fork. 

Drain water and place potatoes into a food processor.

Add maple syrup, vanilla, almond milk, cinnamon and himalayan salt.

Blend until smooth and serve warm.
