Alia’s Tips: Mashed Sweet Potatoes Express!

  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Milk
  • Butter (optional)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Ground cinnamon (optional)

Ingredients

Directions

1. To make an express mashed sweet potatoes dish,  first double wrap the sweet potato in a plastic wrap – You can also use a regular plastic bag.
Microwave the sweet potato for 5 minutes. Check if the sweet potato is soft – if not, you can continue microwaving it for another couple of minutes. The cooking time will depend on the size and the quantity of the sweet potatoes you are using.
2. Slice the sweet potato in half – be careful, the steam is really hot.
Scoop the flesh from the sweet potato and place it in a pan. If you prefer, you can just dice the potato and use it with the skin.
On medium heat, mash the potato with some milk. You can use whole milk or fat free milk – whatever you prefer.  Just use enough milk to get a creamy consistency. You can also use a little bit of butter for more goodness.
Season with salt and pepper… and if you like, a pinch of ground cinnamon. Mix and serve immediately.
Hmmmm… this is definitely my favorite snack after a long day of work. Soooo yummy….
