Avocado Mashed Potatoes

Avocado Mashed Potatoes

Introduction

This is an interesting twist on mashed potatoes. The avocados add a buttery, creamy texture with a fraction of the calories and saturated fat of butter and cream!

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2 medium avocados

    1 and 1/2 lb new potatoes
    (or yukon golds - whatever you have around)

    1 T Smart Balance Light

    1/2 cup nonfat milk

    1 dash lemon juice

    salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste


Directions

Peel and quarter the potatoes, then wash them thoroughly.

Place the potatoes in a large pot with enough cold, salted water to cover them.

Meanwhile, prepare the avocados, making sure to remove any brown flesh. Scoop into a bowl and stir until smooth with lemon juice.

Place the tablespoon of Smart Balance and milk in the microwave until melted and warm.

When potatoes are fork tender, mash them in a large bowl or a stand mixer, slowly adding the milk and butter spread mixture.

When potatoes are mashed to your liking, gently fold in avocado mixture gently, or in a stand mixer - use the lowest setting.

Keep warm and serve!

(hint: Using a small crockpot is a great way to keep potatoes creamy and warm while waiting to serve.)

    I use this as a filling for vegetarian enchiladas. Just wrap the avocado-potato filling in whole wheat tortillas, drizzle enchilada sauce on top, and bake for 20-25 mintues. Delicious! - 3/20/07

  • Is the lemon just to keep the avocado from turning brown? If I were to mix it into the potatoes quickly enough would I be able to avoid using it? I have a lemon allergy, maybe a lime instead? - 9/14/13
