These Delicious Mashed Sweet Potatoes are a super easy and healthy side dish for the holidays or any time of the year.
If you love the classic mashed potato side dish, then you should give this sweet potato version a try. It may just become your new favorite like it has mine.
- 4 Large sweet potatoes
- Oat milk, or milk of choice
- Vegan butter or butter of choice
- Maple syrup
How To Make These Delicious Mashed Sweet Potatoes:
- Peel the skins off the potatoes, unless you want a chunkier mash. For this recipe, I peel the skins off.
- Roast or boil the potatoes on the stovetop. However, boiling them is much easier and produces a creamier result.
- After you boil them, drain the potatoes.
- To blend, either use a potato masher or an electric hand mixer. If you want your potatoes super smooth, feel free to use a food processor.
- For the best results, blend in the milk and butter.
- Note: The butter I use does contain some inflammatory oils. However, all butter (dairy-free or not) have these oils in them. Currently, no butter on the market is perfect. The better options, though, are by Miyoko’s and Kite Hill.
- Don’t forget to season. Salt and pepper are a must.
Different Flavor Combos:
- Use brown butter
- Top with candied pecans or your favorite toasted nut
- Sweeten with honey, or coconut sugar
- Add cinnamon, nutmeg or both
- Sprinkle some of my DIY Garden Herb Salt on top
I love mashed sweet potatoes! And my favorite way to serve them is with some maple syrup, vegan butter and garlic. Depending on what else I’m serving with the potatoes, I will either add some cinnamon or herbs to the potatoes as well.
FYI: Leftover mashed sweet potatoes will keep well in the fridge for up to 4-5 days.
