Spiced Mashed Sweet Potatoes

These are so simple, delicious, and nutritious! They are perfect for a holiday get together or dinner party — no sickeningly sweet sweet potatoes here! Just change the quantities based on the amount of people you’re having :)



(serves about 12)

  • 6 sweet potatoes
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 C skim milk (or dairy substitute)


Peel and boil the sweet potatoes until tender (cut them into smaller pieces to make them cook more quickly), then drain and place in a bowl.

Mash until desired consistency is reached.

Add in cinnamon, cumin, and milk. Mix with a spoon and you are ready to rock! Serve warmed, with a smile :)

    Anne, it is fun to follow your journal – be it cookings or snowsledding. I am going to try this sweet potato recipe of yours – it looks at least easy to make. Do you know that Cumin and Cinnamon also have big medicinal values…??

    Please say hello to your Mom when you see her. If you give me her address, I am going to send her a Christmas Card too. Hope you can get out there soon for a Family Wonderful time together.

    I’m so glad you’re enjoying it :) I didn’t know about the medicinal values of cumin and cinnamon – awesome! That’s great news since they are tasty, hehe. I’ll send you a message with my parent’s address! -Anne
