  1. Pierce sweet potatoes several times with a fork or paring knife. Microwave on high for 10 to 12 minutes or until very soft. Cool just until easy to handle.
  2. Scrape potato flesh from skins into a bowl; discard skins. Mash well with a fork. Stir in lime juice, onion, cumin, salt, cinnamon and pepper. Fold coconut whipped cream into sweet potato mixture until combined. Serve immediately.


  • Tips:
  • Sweet potatoes can be cooked ahead and rewarmed before mixing with remaining ingredients.
  • Garnish with toasted coconut.
