Mashed Sweet Potatoes

001Today is my birthday. I am such a blessed, loved, and just all around very fortunate young lately. I am also so very THANKFUL. Saturday I spent the day celebrating in Bloomington with my cousin Angelica with adventures and excursions (including Bloomingfood stop ins). Sunday I got to go to yoga and sushi with my mom. And today I had time with my roomates and wonderful friends. They planned the day for me. Starting with Mockingjay (LOVE, just in case you wanted a movie recommendation). Then a sweaty season of Pulse. Finishing with us congregating in the kitchen to fix our Thanksgiving dinner, as they are both 9-1-1 dispatcher, who have to work on Thanksgiving day. It was the perfect way to end my birthday. Belly filled and fueled. Soul and heart filled and overwhelmed with the gratitude of the day. And a really tasty batch of mashed sweet potatoes, to share today.

Mashed Sweet Potato

  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp grass-fed butter or ghee or coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • sea salt
  • cinnamon
  • pumpkin pie spice
  • cajun seasoning

Let’s Make it Happen: Peel the sweet potatoes. Cut them up (don’t worry too much about making them perfect). Toss them in a pot. Cover in water. Boil until tender and soft. Strain. Dump into a food processor. Add the remainder of the ingredients. Pulse until it’s smooth and creamy. Spoon into a serving bowl. Enjoy dinner!
