Classic mashed sweet potatoes are made even sweeter with a touch of brown sugar and maple syrup, then given a dose of creaminess with a generous dollop of Greek yogurt.

2 pounds sweet potatoes or yams, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
How to Make It
Place the sweet potatoes in a large pot and fill with cold water to cover the potatoes. Bring the water to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low and then simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.
Drain the sweet potatoes in a colander, shaking the colander to help remove excess water. Pour the potatoes into a large bowl.
Add the brown sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon, and Greek yogurt to the sweet potatoes. Mash to your desired texture and serve warm.
