For 2 servings

  • 4 sweet potatoes
  • 50-100 ml coconut milk
  • Salt and pepper


Step 1

Cook the sweet potatoes with the cooking method of your choice. Baking them are in my opinion the tastier option, but it can take up to 40 minutes.

If you are in a rush, you can cook the sweet potatoes in the microwave in only 5 minutes. I explain how to in this article.

Step 2

Once the sweet potatoes are cooked, place them in a mixer or blender with the coconut milk and a little bit of water to ease the process. Mix everything and season.

You can add more or less liquids according to your preference in terms of texture and taste.

Step 3

The mashed sweet potatoes are now ready to eat! Serve as a side dish (and try not to eat it straight with a spoon as I always do… haha)
