              Sweet Potato: Two-Potato Mash Recipes

Sweet Potato

This spud is one of the most nutritious (and inexpensive) vegetables around. The Vitamin A in sweet potatoes keeps eyes healthy, and acts like an antioxidant in the body. Sweet potatoes are a favorite among babies because of their natural sweetness and bright color, but they are often forgotten once kids get older. Try a baked sweet potato the next time you need a side dish. Simply wash, pierce with a fork, and bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until tender. Then, serve like a baked potato topped with cinnamon-sugar and vanilla yogurt. Apple sauce or a drizzle of maple syrup also make good toppings. If you’ve got a mashed potato lover, then try Two-Potato Mash (pictured).

 I need to try these with my kids.  DH says he hates them so I have never made them but I really should.

We love sweet pots!  They are also very fun to use in different ways.

My son loves sweet potatoes but I HATE them. I call them the impostor potato because they aren't potatoes at all. Just like white chocolate they pretend to be something their not. LOL I do puree them and add them to other foods to get the benefits but they taste like crap.
