I will no longer put butter in my mashed sweet potatoes. It's not about health or nutrition, or even an aversion to dairy (though those are all good reasons) it is about taste. Once I added coconut oil to my sweet potatoes I was hooked. The coconut oil brings out the sweetness of the potato, and adds a creaminess, like butter. I must stress: if you like sweet potatoes, get and use some coconut oil with them. Here is the easy 2 ingredient recipe.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Coconut Oil
Cook time: 20 minutes
1 very large sweet potato
1-2 Tbsp coconut oil
Peel and cut the sweet potato in small even pieces. Place in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil for about 10-15 minutes until potatoes are soft.
Remove from heat and drain. Remove sweet potatoes to a medium-sized bowl (or just put back in the saucepan) and mash with 1-2 Tbsp coconut oil. No need to add any other liquid because sweet potatoes absorb more liquid while boiling than regular potatoes (but if you think you need some reserve some of the cooking liquid and use it).
Makes 2 servings.
