Servings 4


  • 4 large sweet potatoes chopped in 1” pieces
  • 4 tablespoons of ghee or coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ cup full-fat canned coconut crème


  • ½ cup fresh parsley chopped


  • In a large Dutch oven pot or soup pot, add chopped sweet potatoes and fill with water just until the sweet potatoes are covered.
  • Cover pot and bring to high heat and bring to a boil.
  • When boiling, remove lid and reduce heat to medium and simmer until sweet potatoes are fork-tender, about 12 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat and carefully drain the water from the pot.
  • When the water is drained, add ghee or coconut oil, sea salt, black pepper and coconut crème and mash with a potato masher (if you do not have a potato masher, simply mash it up as best as you can with a couple of big forks).
  • Serve between 4 with chopped parsley, storing any leftovers in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can also freeze your leftovers in a freezer-safe container for up to 6 months.
  • Enjoy!
