  • 4 Lbs Sweet potatoes, cut into 1 inch thick slices
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp Ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Thyme
  • 4 Tbsp Butter (DF works too!)
  • 1/4 Cup Unsweetened almond milk or skim milk
  • 1 1/2-2 tsp Salt + more for boiling


  • Place the potatoes in a large pot with generously salted, COLD water (about 1 tsp of salt in the water) and cover at least an inch.
  • Bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover and reduce the temperature slightly to maintain a low boil. Cook until the potatoes can be pierced easily with a fork with almost no resistance, about 20-25 minutes. Drain well and place back into the pot. Use a paper towel to blot off excess water.
  • Mash the potatoes using a potato masher or potato ricer
  • Stir in the cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and thyme.
  • Melt the butter with the milk in a small pan and then pour into the potatoes. Season to taste with the salt
