Creamy Mashed Sweet Potatoes


This is a healthier and not-so-sweet option for those who prefer sweet potato fries to sweet potato pies. I use organic ingredients, but it is not required!

Prep Time:
10 mins
Cook Time:
20 mins
Total Time:
30 mins
1 1/2 quarts


  • 4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 4 ounces Neufchatel cheese (such as Organic Valley®), softened

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt, or to taste


  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with cold water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer potatoes until tender, about 20 minutes; drain and transfer potatoes to a large mixing bowl.

  2. Beat potatoes with an electric mixer until smooth; add cream cheese and beat again until smooth. Season potatoes with sea salt.

Cook's Notes:

Serve immediately, or transfer to an oven-safe baking dish, cover, and keep warm in an oven at 200 degrees F (95 degrees C) until the rest of meal is ready!

Substitute cream cheese for the Neufchatel cheese, if desired.
