A go-to side dish that is absolutely delicious and Whole30 compliant.


  • Approx. 10-12 Yukon gold potatoes
  • 12 teaspoons kosher salt, more to taste
  • 1/41/2 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 24 tablespoons ghee, melted


  1. Cut up potatoes in chunks while you bring a pot of water to boil.
  2. Add potatoes and let them simmer until they are very tender and you can easily pierce with a fork, approximately 10-15 minutes.
  3. Drain potatoes and place them into a large mixing bowl.
  4. Use a potato masher and mash the potatoes down.
  5. Add 1 Teaspoon of salt, the ghee and 1/4 cup coconut milk.
  6. Use a hand mixer to blend everything together.
  7. 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.


  • Peeled potatoes: for a more creamy texture, take the extra few minutes to peel your potatoes, but you don’t have to. This recipe will turn out either way.
  • Coconut Milk: I can’t recommend this carton of coconut milk enough!
  • Ghee: feel free to use this homemade ghee recipe or store-bought
  • Other types of potatoes: this will also work with russet potatoes, but I highly recommend Yukon gold – much more creamy in my opinion.
  • Storage: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • Gravy: Here is a Whole30/Gluten-Free Gravy recipe!
