Delicious Mashed Sweet Potatoes are a super easy and healthy side dish for the holidays or any time of year.


Units Scale
  • 4 large Sweet Potatoes, washed, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup Oat Milk, or milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup Miyoko’s Creamery European Style Cultured Vegan Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Garlic Clove, minced
  • 3 tbsp Pure Maple Syrup
  • Himalayan Pink Salt, to taste
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste


  1. Boil: To a pot of boiling water, add the diced sweet potatoes and cook until they can be easily pierced with a fork; about 20-25 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain well.
  2. Blend: With a hand mixer, mix up the potatoes for about a minute or so. Add the milk and butter and mix until well blended and smooth. Add the garlic and maple syrup and give it a quick stir until just incorporated. (Taste for flavor and adjust accordingly). Finish off with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Serve: Enjoy immediately!


  • Different flavor combinations: You can use brown butter, top with candied pecans or your favorite toasted nut, sweeten with honey or brown sugar, add cinnamon, nutmeg or both, or sprinkle some of my DIY Garden Herb Salt on top.
