Description Edit

For (Vegans, those with dairy allergies or who are lactose intolerant, here is an alternate recipe to try. I made this recipe for Thanksgiving and my family thought it was as tasty as the kind with milk and butter.

Ingredients Edit

  • 8 medium or 4 large sweet potatoes or yams, peeled and cubed
  • 3/4 cup soy milk (or other non-dairy milk)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (Sweetners may also work, I haven't tried it.)
  • A sweet apple or sweet banana, even Peach or nectarine cooked with the sweet potatoes may work, Fruit that's getting a bit wilted and not ideal for dessert can frequently be used in this type or recipe. I haven't tried this specific recipe.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions Edit

  1. Boil a large pot of water.
  2. Add potatoes and cook for 20 to 30 minutes, or until tender.
  3. If using fruit in place of sugar add it later as fruit takes less time to cook.
  4. Drain potatoes using a colander,
  5. Using an electric mixer (or hand masher, if you prefer), blend potatoes slowly adding ¼ cup of milk alternative at a time until you get to your desired consistency.
  6. Continue blending potatoes, adding in brown sugar and salt.
  7. Blend until at your desired texture (smooth or lumpy).
  8. Serve!
