Paleo Sweet Potato Mash Recipe
I had a bag of sweet potatoes sitting in my kitchen and decided to make a paleo sweet potato mash for Thanksgiving using the sweet potatoes and coconut milk. It was so good I had to share the recipe. It’s really simple and only made with 5 ingredients. So here is my awesome paleo sweet potato mash recipe. Enjoy!
Here’s What You Will Need:
- One Bag of Sweet Potatoes (I had the bag of organic sweet potatoes from Trader Joe’s)
- 4 TBSP Pure Maple Syrup
- 1 TBSP Coconut Milk
- 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
- 1 Tsp Nutmeg
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Take a cookie sheet (here’s the one I use) and line it with tin foil. Wash your sweet potatoes throughly and pierce several times with a fork. Place on cookie sheet with foil and cook for 1 hour. Set aside and let cool for 15 minutes.
Next, put the maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, and coconut milk in a small to medium sized bowl and mix. Peel off the skin of the sweet potatoes and mix into bowl. Once you get a good mixture going, top off with more cinnamon for garnish and boom – you’re ready to serve!
This paleo sweet potato mash was great as a Thanksgiving side dish and not one that will have your non-paleo family members groaning about. But not only that, it’s good for every day paleo use! You can make a batch and eat as a side dish with chicken, steak, or whatever lean meat you desire. We’ve currently been eating it as a side dish with our turkey and chicken leftovers.
This paleo sweet potato mash is NOT whole30 compliant. If you would like to make the paleo sweet potato mash recipe whole 30 compliant then I recommend omitting the maple syrup. You could probably add a bit more coconut milk in place of the maple syrup and I bet it would be fine- just make sure it’s not too watery!
I really enjoyed this paleo sweet potato mash recipe and had to post it for you all while it’s still fresh in my mind. Enjoy!
