Watch as Chef Jeffrey K. Vaden makes whipped sweet potatoes–a healthy, delicious Thanksgiving side dish that your whole family will love.
Whipped Sweet Potatoes
1 hr 10 min
1 hr 10 min
4 large sweet potatoes
1 tbsp brown sugar (optional)*
2 tbsp honey (optional)*
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp vanilla extract
¼–½ cup low-fat evaporated milk
1 orange (juiced)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
½ tsp ginger
salt and white pepper to taste
Bake the sweet potatoes at 400F until done (about an hour). Baking allows the natural sugars to come out instead of boiling them away.
Peel the potatoes and place the pulp into a large bowl.
Stir in the brown sugar and/or honey, butter, milk, and juice of the orange.
Add the spices and whip to desired consistency.
*Options are endless and include rosemary, maple syrup, chipotle paste, or even placing marshmallows on top and finishing under the broiler until they begin to melt. Enjoy!
