Creamy Whole30 Mashed Potatoes – a go-to side dish that is absolutely delicious, Whole30 compliant and dairy-free!
If you are looking for the PERFECT side dish to liven up your Whole30 (or you need the perfect dairy-free mashed potato recipe), then you need to try these!
I really can’t believe it has taken me this long to post this recipe – this was a complete lifesaver during this last round of Whole30 and I am so excited to finally be sharing it with you! Not only are they easy to make (they take about 15-20 minutes total), but they are also so creamy and flavorful! My husband inhaled them (he also did Whole30 with me) and the kiddos LOVED them. I especially loved them because, as always, I can never eat mashed potatoes when I go out to eat because they inevitably have milk or cream or butter …. or all of the above. So I eat these all the time, even when I am not doing a round of Whole30.
If you are looking for other side dishes, I would highly recommend the Sweet Potato Cinnamon Sticks as well! Dip them in some compliant ranch and you are good to go. Or just make a regular baked potato and top with some salt, ghee and compliant ranch – also a big hit in our house! Those are really our go-to’s!
Alright, this tired lady is heading to bed – I hope you guys have had a great week!
A quick note on this recipe, it is definitely one that allows you to really make them the way YOU like them! Some people like really creamy and some people like their mashed potatoes thicker – the ingredients are simple here, so I have put together the basics for you (there are only 4 ingredients!) and know you guys can taste and add more of something to meet your satisfaction!! They are sooooo good you guys!!
Oh – and if you want to make your own Ghee – here is a quick tutorial on it!
- Approx. 10-12 Yukon gold potatoes (I did not peel them, but feel free to if you want)
- 1-2 Teaspoons kosher salt
- ¼ - ½ cup coconut milk
- 2 Tablespoons ghee, melted
- Cut up potatoes in chunks while you bring a pot of water to boil.
- Add potatoes and let them simmer until they are very tender and you can easily pierce with a fork, approximately 10 minutes.
- Drain potatoes and place them into a large mixing bowl.
- Use a potato masher and mash the potatoes down.
- Add 1 Teaspoon of salt, the ghee and ¼ cup coconut milk.
- Use a hand mixer to blend everything together.
- Taste - if they need to be smoother/creamier - add additional coconut milk and/or ghee; if they need more salt add the additional Teaspoon and then add a pinch at a time after that.
