This downright yummy version of Sweet Potato Mash tastes so delicious and comforting, you'll find it hard to believe it's a lightened-up recipe! Dress it up for company, serve it during the holidays, or add it to your weeknight dinner for a healthier way to enjoy your carbs.

What You'll Need

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 2 tablespoons sugar-free maple syrup

What to Do

  1. Scrub sweet potatoes and prick skins. Cover and cook in microwave on HIGH 6 minutes on each side, or until potatoes are soft. Let stand 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Scoop potato from shells into a mixing bowl and mash with fork. Stir in cinnamon, orange peel, and maple syrup. Serve immediately.


  • We like to serve these in hollowed orange halves to make them company-fancy.

  • If you have the option, choose sweet potatoes over white potatoes because they have a lower glycemic index.
