  • 1/3 cup lite coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger or ginger paste*

Instructions

  • Pierce the sweet potatoes all over with a fork. Cook in the microwave on HIGH until tender when pierced with a fork, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Let the potatoes rest until cool enough to handle.
  • Cut the potatoes in half lengthwise. Carefully scoop the flesh out of the potatoes and place in a medium-sized bowl. Add the coconut milk, ginger and salt.
  • Using a hand mixer, mix until the potato mixture is smooth. Alternatively, use the back of a fork or a potato masher.
