Holiday Sweet Potato Mash

Looking for a less marshmallowy way to get sweet potato goodness into your mouth during the holidays??? Look no further!

These are full of cinnamony-orangey goodness!!!

My boys were actually a bit overwhelmed by the orange and I LOVED it. Feel free to adjust your zest game according to your tastes.

I use 2 large Navel oranges to make the orange ingredients in this recipe…

TIPS: If you don’t use salted butter, you may want to add some salt to help the sweetness pop. To make this recipe OvoVege or Vegan sub out the butter for a vegan butter without trans fats that has an avocado oil or olive oil base.
