Mashed Sweet Potatoes


Just wanted to share this new little creation with you. Most “sweet potato recipes” call for lots of butter, sugar, marshmallows, and or nuts. But sweet potatoes are so versatile! I love them and since I began my Trim Healthy Mama journey, I’ve been eating them without all the fat and sugar. I still needed a good side recipes using the sweet potatoes. I wanted a mashed version that would be GOOD! Here is it! My husband deemed this “ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS” and that’s huge because he usually only like sweet potatoes with butter, sugar, marshmallows!

Basically just wash and stab your sweet potatoes. Set the oven for 375 degrees and place the potatoes on the wrack for about an hour. Just check them off and on. If they squeeze easy after an hour you can take them out. If not, cook a little longer. Take them out, peel them, cut up, mash. Add ingredients. Voila! A PERFECT E side dish if you follow Trim Healthy Mama!! Not to mention the color is just straight up beautiful!! I had this with cut up chicken breasts in a homemade Asian sauce and roasted veggies!! So good!!
