Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Property of

Mashed potatoes are a staple for almost every holiday dinner, don’t fear! You don’t have to give up mashed potatoes at your holiday dinner. I’ve figured out a simple recipe to make creamy, smooth sweet potato mashed potatoes. Just because you’re Paleo doesn’t mean you have to miss out on your holiday favorites.


3 medium sweet potatoes
3/4 cup coconut milk


Fill a pot with warm water, sprinkle with salt.
Place pot on high heat and bring to a boil.
Wash, peel and cube your sweet potatoes. 1/2 inch x 1/2 inch x 1/2 inch cubes work great but don’t get to worried about making them perfect.
Add sweet potatoes to water when it begins to boil.
Boil for 20-30 minutes or until you can poke a fork through the sweet potatoes.
Place sweet potatoes in a bowl and add coconut milk. (I recommend streaming the coconut milk in as you mix, you may find that you don’t need as much or maybe you need more. Judge it based on the consistency of mashed potatoes that you like.)
Using a hand mixer whip potatoes until smooth.

Nothing too scary here! It’s very similar to how you’d make non-paleo mashed potatoes, we’re just changing up the ingredients a little bit.

Here’s to never missing another holiday staple!
