Mashed Sweet Potatoes

One of the dishes that I agreed to make for Thanksgiving Dinner at work was sweet potatoes.  Personally, I feel like T-Day dinner is salt salt salt salt salt.  I wanted to find a recipe that had a hint of sweet.  Sweet sweet potatoes it is.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Ingredients
4-6 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1″ chunks
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or coconut milk)
1 heaping tablespoon coconut oil
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
Salt and pepper to taste
(Scale this recipe for the amount of people being served, I figured 1 sweet potato per person)

Instructions
1. Peel and cut sweet potatoes, and place in a large soup pot filled with water.
2. Bring water to boil, and boil sweet potatoes until soft, about 20 minutes.
3. Drain sweet potatoes and place in a large bowl, or kitchen aid mixer.
4. With kitchen aid mixer, or hand mixer, mash sweet potatoes on low to keep from getting lumpy and “glue-like”.
5. Continue to mash while adding coconut oil, almond milk, and maple syrup.
6. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve.

Simple.  Crazy simple.  A few changes.  I used heavy whip instead of almond milk.  Also, my hand mixer recently took a crap and the station that I was at did not have a hand mixer.  Blender it is.  May I recommend a hand mixer or Kitchenaid mixer…works a little slicker.  Lastly, I opted not to sprinkle with s&p.

These sweet potatoes are darn tasty.  The clan at the station loved them as well.  Perfectly and subtly sweet.  A great way to enjoy a guilt-free sweet potato dish.

Happy Eating!
