  • Hand Mixer


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


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Enjoy immediately!
