Mashed Purple Sweet Potatoes

Don’t you love when the food you eat is not only delicious, but also so beautiful to look at?  I absolutely love the color purple and these purple sweet potatoes are the perfect shade!  They are a great carbohydrate that are filled with vitamins and antioxidants.  They are also sweet, but not overly sweet.  Just right!

Ingredients:

  • 6-7 Organic purple sweet potatoes from Trader Joe’s
  • 2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup of water or coconut milk or other non-dairy milk of choice
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder or cinnamon (depending on your palette)

Directions:
