Sweet Potato Coconut Garlic Mash


  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut butter I made mine myself
  • 1.5 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 handful shredded coconut I used sweetened
  • salt to taste


  • Bring a saucepan full of water to a boil.
  • While the water is heating up, peel and chop the sweet potato into small cubes.
  • Boil until soft. Strain and set aside.
  • Turn the heat down to medium-low.
  • Add the coconut butter and stir, immediately add a splash of water (about 1/4 cup) to keep the coconut butter from burning.
  • Add the cooked cubed sweet potato back in and stir.
  • Combine with the shredded coconut, garlic powder and salt.
  • The sweet potato will mash itself as you stir. Serve alone or with your vegetables of choice.
