Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  1. 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.

  2. Drain the sweet potatoes in a colander, shaking the colander to help remove excess water. Pour the potatoes into a large bowl.

  3. Add the brown sugar, maple syrup, cinnamon, and Greek yogurt to the sweet potatoes. Mash to your desired texture and serve warm.
