Whipped Sweet Potato & Peanut Butter Puree

Side dishes….I’m not a huge fan of the standard green bean casserole, or a weak mashed potato.  So, I’m always looking for great vegetable side dishes to try out.  I love sweet potatoes and I love peanut butter, so I searched online for a recipe that combined the two.  To my dismay, there were none..other than sweet potato stews.  But I wanted the creaminess of the sweet potato and the richness of the peanut butter together.  In sweet harmony.  So, I whipped up this little number and boy is it rich – and great!

This is the sweet potato that I used – I had to take a photo 🙂


1 sweet potato

2 tbsp milk (I used rice milk)

2 tbsp organic creamy peanut butter (crunchy doesn’t work here)

1/4-1/2 tsp sea salt

pinch of brown sugar

Pierce and roast sweet potato for 1 hour at 400F.  Peel off the skin of the sweet potato, and mash in bowl.  Add in the milk, peanut butter and salt.  Put ingredients into food processor, and process until smooth.  Taste, and add in brown sugar if you so desire.  Enjoy! 🙂
