Whipped Maple Sweet Potatos

med106155_1110_tkg_maple_sweet_potato_vertI made these easy sweet potatoes to compliment my “Mom’s Meatloaf” last week. They were so good! My husband was going nuts! Mickey Mouse loved them as well!

We are a strongly pro-sweet potato household. Nutritionaldata.com says the following about this beautiful root vegetable:

“This food is low in Sodium, and very low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin B6 and Potassium, and a very good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and Manganese”

 So these are something to definitely incorporate into your diet. You can toss the sweet potatoes into soup as well (you’ll see in the next recipe).
Anywho, to make these wonderful sweet potatoes, here are the easy steps. This should take you about 30 minutes total, and makes about 4 cups!
The four ingredients:

2 pounds of sweet potatos

2 tablespoons of maple syrup

1/2 cup of low-fat milk

Salt (to taste)

Instructions:

  1. Rinse and peel Sweet potatoes. Set water in a large pot to boil while you work.
  2. Dice sweet potatoes (the smaller you go, the faster they will cook)
  3. Once the water is boiling,  add the sweet potatoes
  4. After 25 minutes, check to see how soft the potatoes are. Once they are fork tender, drain the potatos and put into a large bowl.
  5. Add 1 fluid oz maple syrup, 6 tablespoons of butter, and a half cup of milk. Beat the ingredients with a mixer on low until totally mixed. Add salt to taste.
  6. Serve while hot and enjoy!

Weight Watchers points (based on a recipe made with whole milk, skim or fat-free milk should save you 1 point): 2 oz serving is 3 pp, 4 oz serving is 5pp

 

Disclaimer: I used this picture from marthastewart.com because I couldn’t download my own picture from instagram, and I deleted it from my phone. My sweet potatoes looked like this but my own picture was not nearly as pretty. I will take down the picture if requested!
