The Modern Pilgrim :: Mashed Sweet Potato Casserole

Here is a great side dish to go along with your Roasted Pork Tenderloin!Mashed Sweet Potato Casserole - an old holiday favorite...cleaned up!

Mashed Sweet Potato Casserole

5 cups baked sweet potatoes, peeled
2/3 cup of unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup honey
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
pecans (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Wash and wrap whole sweet potatoes (unpeeled) in individual foil pockets. 
2. Once oven is heated, place sweet potatoes on wire oven rack or place on baking sheet and then place in oven. Bake for 1 1/2 hours or until sweet potatoes are soft. 
3. Remove sweet potatoes and baking sheet (if used) from oven. Allow potatoes to cool for approximately 10 minutes. 
4. Unwrap foil pockets and peel skin off of potatoes (this is optional if you prefer mashed potatoes with the skin - personally, I have not tried the recipe with the skin on.) PLEASE NOTE: Be especially careful due to the temperature of the potatoes and skins - you can get burned if not careful! Place peeled sweet potatoes in a large bowl or in a bowl of a stand mixer.
5. Add milk, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg to bowl. 
6. Mix using an electric mixer for approximately 3-5 minutes until all ingredients are combined and potatoes are fluffy. Add pecans if desired.
7. Using a shallow ceramic dish, transfer sweet potato mixture and place in oven to bake at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes. Garnish with additional pecans if desired.

He & She Tip: Here is another variation of this recipe.

  1. How many sweet potatoes did you bake to make the 5 cups for this recipe?

    1. Hi Julia! I actually goofed & did 5 sweet potatoes (without even measuring them) but I think that would be pretty accurate anyway. It would just depend on the size of your potatoes!

  2. This recipe is amazing!! I just made it (using organic homo milk instead-I'm currently trying to conceive.) I'm from South Alabama, and this tastes so much like the sweet potato casserole I grew up eating on holidays. I am in love with this butter, sugar, and flour free treat!

    1. So glad you enjoyed it Brenna!...And good luck! ;-)

  3. My husband was JUST saying last night that he would love to have mashed sweet potatoes instead of regular ones :) Thanks for this great recipe!

    1. See, we can read minds! :-) I hope that he likes this one!

  4. Hi! Love you guys! What's the serving size & macros? Thanks!
