Ingredients

  • 3 lb. sweet potatoes peeled and cut into approx. 1" chunks
  • 3 med. apples peeled & cut into approx. 1" chunks
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 c. Swanson Cream Starter™
  • 1/4 c. honey
  • 1/4 c. chopped pecans

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, boil peeled sweet potatoes. Cook until potatoes are fork-tender, about 10 minutes.

  2. Add apples, cinnamon and Swanson Cream Starter™. Return to stove top and heat 5 minutes until apples are warmed through; stirring to prevent potatoes from sticking. Remove from heat and add honey.

  3. Using a hand mixer or immersion blender, mash apples and potatoes until smooth. Add vanilla and additional Swanson Cream Starter™ until desired consistency is reached.

    I know it’s a year after the fact, but do you know of anything that could be used as a substitute for cream starter? I prefer natural to packaged. Thanks in advance.

    Love sweet potatoes and just bought some. I will have to look for this cream starter. This is the second time I’ve seen it used but have not noticed it in the stores here.

    This looks so good! And a much healthier alternative to good ‘ol mash potatoes. I will have to go stock up on some of this cream starter so I can make this for Christmas… and New Years!

      For sure! Don’t get me wrong, I love both!! I love the benefits of the healthier option more though! The cream starter is amazing and so verstile, you’ll love it!
