coconut mashed sweet potatoesIngredients for Chunky Coconut Mashed Sweet Potatoes

2 medium size sweet potatoes

1 T coconut oil

2T flaked coconut

Allspice, to taste*

*If you don’t have allspice, you can easily use cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, or even some pumpkin pie spice.

Instructions for Chunky Coconut Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Scrub potatoes well.  I like to leave the skin on for fiber and nutrients.

Dice in to 1 inch cubes.

Steam until cooked, but not mushy—about 15-20 minutes.

Transfer to bowl, add remaining ingredients.  You can mash by just using a spoon or fork, if you prefer chunky style, or use a hand mixer for a smoother consistency.
