Healthy Mashed Sweet Potatoes are a favorite in my house. They’re easy to make and so tasty. I like to make this recipe on busy weeknights because it pairs well with chicken and fish but they are also the perfect side dish to round out your holiday table.

Simple, wholesome, real food ingredients are all you need to make this recipe; sweet potatoes, olive oil, onion, garlic, rosemary, Greek yogurt, salt, and pepper. No need for any sour cream or butter and if you wanted to keep them vegan, you can skip the yogurt as well.

  1. Recently found the Gold Sweet Potatoes & fell in love – but actually I love all the varieties. If it's a Sweet Potato, I'll eat it. Since it's just me, usually just roast a couple of them – enough for 2 meals. They definitely can satisfy a sugar craving. For me, I usually have 2 portions of fresh fruit per day and if I'm out, I keep some dried apricots in my pantry just in case. Fresh or dried fruit along with a small handful of walnuts is a great, healthy snack & really keep me satisfied.
