Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Continuing my sweet potato kick, here is my recipe for mashed sweet potatoes. Perfect amount of sweet and cinnamon flavor to add to your holiday meal. 

This recipe is simple. We need more simplicity at the holidays, right!? On top of all the chaos of parties and gift giving you have to make a beautiful meal/dish too? This recipe will help you.

I say this recipe is simple because there are few ingredients and no special tools needed. I literally used a potato masher to blend the potatoes or you can use a hand mixer. Once the potatoes are soft from boiling they don’t take much to blend. 

Another thing I love about sweet potatoes is they are much healthier than regular white potatoes, and to top it off this recipe is dairy free.  
My family usually has both white and sweet potatoes on the table to please everyone at the holidays. Lastly, how about that bright orange color!? What a beautiful dish to add to the table. 

You can make this a couple days in advance and it will keep well in the fridge.

Price: Coconut Milk is around $2.59 per quart. Sweet potatoes are usually $.99 per pound.
