Ingredients

For The Sweet Potato

  • 4 large Sweet Potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted Butter, room temperature

  • 4 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
  • 2 to 3 Tablespoons low fat milk or half and half

  • 2 Tablespoons fresh thyme leaves, minced

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon ground all-spice

  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

Instructions

    1. Place the peeled sweet potatoes in a very large pot and cover with cold water.
    2. Bring the water to a boil and then gently simmer the water until the potatoes are fork tender, approximately 15-20 minutes.
    3. Once the potatoes are cooked, drain thoroughly and return the potato to the pot.
    4. Add the butter, cream cheese, and milk, or half & half, to the sweet potatoes.
    5. Mash with an immersion blender or a hand-held masher. For a thinner consistency, add more milk, if desired.
    6. Once the potatoes are lump free and creamy, stir in thyme leaves, cinnamon, and all-spice until well blended.
    7. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and serve immediately.
    8. To make whipped cream cheese topping, blend 4 oz. softened cream cheese, 3 tablespoons half & half, and a dash of cinnamon with an immersion blender or hand-held mixer until light and fluffy.
    9. Top with a spoonful of whipped cream cheese and/or toasted walnuts, if desired. Enjoy!
