A dairy-free, nut-free, gluten-free family favorite!
Everyone loves sweet potatoes. They are a great alternative to regular, starchy white potatoes. Sweet potatoes are packed with fiber to help with digestion and contain beta-carotene, which is a potent anti-oxidant.
Sweet potatoes are typically used in casseroles or topped with butter or sugar. This healthier mashed sweet potato recipe uses the good fat of coconut milk and the sweetness of cinnamon and ginger to make a healthy meal or side dish for your family.
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
1 1/2 lbs. medium sweet potatoes
1 Tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger
3/4 cup coconut milk
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
Peel and chop sweet potatoes and then boil them until tender. Drain the water from potatoes. Using an electric mixer, beat the potatoes until fluffy or use a potato masher to mash.
Add 1 Tbsp. of honey and 1/2 tsp. of sea salt, and then beat again.
Transfer the potatoes to an oven safe dish and add coconut milk, cinnamon and ginger and stir well.
Reheat in the oven for 8-10 minutes.
