  • 2.2 lbs 1 kg Sweet Potatoes (peeled)
  • 1/4 of a cup 60 g Melted Coconut Butter (Learn how to make your own here.)
  • 3/4 of a cup 185 ml warm unsweetened Oat Milk (other unsweetened plant based milks will work too)
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper


  1. Peel and roughly dice sweet potatoes. Steam sweet potatoes until you can easily pierce them with a fork, around 15 minutes.
  2. Remove potatoes from steamer and place in a large pot and mash with a potato masher. Add melted coconut butter, oat milk, and salt and pepper. Beat ingredients into sweet potatoes until fully mixed and fluffy.
  3. Add more salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Serve hot.

Recipe Notes

1.) If you don't have a steamer, you can also boil the sweet potatoes in a large stock pot in lightly salted water. If you have boiled your potatoes, make sure once they are cooked, that you return them to the stove over low heat to dry off any excess water for 1 - 2 minutes.2.) If you don't have any coconut butter on hand, feel free to use vegan butter.
