Sweet Potato Mash

Sweet potato – so much more flavour than regular potatoes and nutritionally much better for you. Good for eyesight and helps with immunity. This simple mash has an amazing aroma thanks to the cinnamon.


  • 6 medium sweet potatoes
  • ½ stick of butter
  • ½ cup of cream
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • (optional) salt, to taste


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil over medium heat.
  2. Peel sweet potatoes and cut them in half length-wise. Cut each half into quarters so you have 8 pieces per potato.
  3. When the water is boiling add the sweet potatoes and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook for 15 minutes or until potatoes can be easily pierced through with a knife.
  4. Drain and return the potatoes to the pot. Add butter, cream and cinnamon and mash to desired consistency with a masher. I like mine super smooth.
  5. Adjust the taste with salt if you like.

Serves 6-8
