Spiced Mashed Sweet Potatoes


(serves about 12)

  • 6 sweet potatoes
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 C milk (I recommend 2% or whole — a dairy substitute will also work if unflavored)


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 and serve warm!

    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…?

    Hi, Looks like a great recipe. I wanted something other than the sugar laden casserole I normally make. Thanks for sharing.

    Has anyone done this dish in an instant pot?

    Can you cook these ahead of time and freeze them?

    Question why do you recommend 2 percent or whole milk instead of 1 percent or skim? And can I use half and half instead? I don’t want to buy a whole container of 2 percent for 1 recipe?
