Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes – the ultimate Yukon gold mashed potato recipe! Perfect side dish for a roast and some gravy!


  • Approx. 4lbs yukon gold potatoes, cut into large chunks
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk 
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/4 cup ranch dressing
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 


  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil.
  2. Add cut up potatoes (the smaller you cut them the shorter the boil time will be) to pot of boiling water. 
  3. Let boil for 15-25 minutes or until they are very tender. 
  4. Drain potatoes and add to a large mixing bowl. 
  5. Add remaining ingredients and let the butter melt/soften for a minute or two.
  6. Use a potato masher to mash everything together (alternatively you can use a hand mixer, if you prefer) until the consistency is smooth.
  7. Taste and adjust salt or other ingredients, as-desired. 
  8. Serve with additional butter or gravy.
