Ingredients List:

  • 3-4 lb sweet potatoes, yams or mixture of the two
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • slightly short of ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fresh orange juice (~1 whole orange fresh squeezed)
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • 6 tablespoons butter or smart balance (vegan option)
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • dash of cinnamon
  • ¼ cup Medium Pecan Pieces
  • A holiday favorite with creamy sweetness and flavor, pecans add a soft crunch to every bite!


    1. Pre-heat oven at 350 degrees. Poke holes into sweet potatoes or yams and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

    2. Bake sweet potatoes or yams for 55-70 minutes, until they are soft all the way through.

    3. Allow sweet potatoes or yams to cool and then peel the skin off.

    4. Chop sweet potatoes into medium pieces and place either in a food processor or high powered blender like a Vitamix machine along with maple syrup, brown sugar, orange juice, salt, cinnamon, coconut milk, and butter. Process until it becomes creamy and smooth.

    5. Place mashed sweet potatoes or yams into a pan (8 x 8 x 2 inch)

    6. Sprinkle Pecan Pieces on top and it’s ready to serve.

    The moment this hits the lips, the smoothy sweetness is seductive, leaving you wanting more. The creaminess of each bite makes it almost impossible to believe that it is dairy free. The added surprise with the pecans are simply a delight as they add texture, flavor and spice to every spoonful. This is a perfect side dish for any holiday event.
