  • 4 large sweet potatoes peeled and diced
  • 1/4 cup ghee
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 cup almond or coconut milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • chopped chives for garnish


  • Place the peeled and diced sweet potatoes into a saucepan and bring to a boil; cook until the potatoes can easily be pierced with a fork, then drain the water.
  • Use a potato masher or a fork to mash the potatoes for 10 seconds or so. Then, add ghee, garlic and milk and use an electric hand mixer to mix the potatoes until they're smooth. Do a taste test and add salt and pepper as needed.
  • Top with chopped chives and enjoy!
