Mashed Maple-Orange Sweet Potatoes (Dairy-Free and Vegan)



  • 4 lbs sweet potatoes washed with skin left on
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • topping::
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 3 Tbs O Organics┬« 100% pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp O Organics┬« ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 3 Tbs pomegranate seeds


  • In a large pot, boil sweet potatoes until fork-tender. Drain well and return to pot.
  • Add coconut milk to pot and use a potato masher to get potatoes to a whipped but chunky consistency (A hand-held mixer would work as well). Add a little more coconut milk if needed to get the right consistency. Fold in orange zest and salt until evenly incorporated. Scoop potatoes into a serving platter
  • Toast pecans on a baking sheet at 400┬║F for 5 minutes or until they are a light golden brown. Remove from oven and pour maple syrup over them. Sprinkle on cloves and cayenne. Toss mixture together with a fork. Add pecans to the top of mashed sweet potatoes. Pour any remaining maple syrup from the baking sheet on top of potatoes too.
  • Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and serve immediately!


Pro Tips: Add a dash of white pepper to the potatoes for a savory flavor. If skipping added natural sweeteners, you can leave out the maple syrup. This dish will still have a delicious flavor! Add as much coconut milk as you like to get the potatoes to the consistency you prefer. Milk, vegetable broth or any liquid will also work. Use a squeeze of fresh orange juice for more orange flavor.
