Healthy Honey Mashed Sweet Potatoes will be the star of your dinner!
When the Hubs and I were in Hawaii we ate at Roy's on The Big Island. It was such a good meal. One of the dishes we ordered was tuna and it came with some mashed purple sweet potatoes. As much as I love fresh tuna, those potatoes were my favorite thing on the plate!
Very dark restaurant picture of the meal...
So being the good food blogger that I am, I grilled the waitress to find out what was in them! Turned out it was simply honey, butter, cream and the potatoes. Absolutely divine.
Since I already have my Mom's
kind of unhealthy sweet potatoes on Running in a Skirt (totally worth the splurge though!), I decided this would be my opportunity to bring another healthier mashed sweet potato recipe to my site.
So, this is my version of Honey Mashed Sweet Potatoes!
I sweetened mine with a little bit of honey and added some creaminess by using plain Greek yogurt. No butter or cream here!
Feel free to sub purple sweet potatoes if you can find them. Unfortunately I didn't have any luck! But, I will be adding them to my garden next spring.
I never thought Honey Mashed Sweet Potatoes would remind me of Hawaii, but they totally do! This dish will be one I make and think of long warm days in the sun, all winter long.
Healthy Honey Mashed Potatoes
- Boil the sweet potatoes in salted water for 10-15 minutes until fork tender.
- In a mixer or with a potato masher, mash potaotes.
- Add the honey, Greek yogurt and salt. Blend well.
