whipped sweet potatoes with coconut and ginger

Here is an easy way to change up a traditional fall or Thanksgiving dinner side dish. This version uses coconut cream and ginger to give delicious flavor.


6 lb yams or sweet potatoes (6 large)
1 stick unsalted butter, melted (if you are wanting to go lighter use less)
3/4 cup unsweetened coconut cream (I used the cream off the top of a can of coconut milk, you may need 2 cans)
1.5 Tbsp. finely grated peeled fresh ginger
unsweetened shredded coconut for garnish

1. Preheat the oven to 400ยบ. Bake yams on a baking sheet for about 1 hour, until tender. Let cool slightly.
2. Peel the yams and transfer to a food processor or blender (may need to do in batches). Add butter, coconut cream, ginger and blend until smooth.
3. Reheat, sprinkle with coconut and serve.
