Directions

Slice raw sweet potatoes into medium slim slices. Place slices into a small pot (large enough to hold the potatoes and water mixture).

Wisk together water, splenda, cinnamon, and vanilla, blend well. Pour over sliced sweet potatoes.

Cover and bring to a boil on medium heat. Once boiling, turn down to simmer, cook 30 - 35 minutes, until potatoes are soft - do not overcook, it will become too mushy.

ENJOY!!!!

    I made these yesterday for Sunday dinner and doubled the recipe. It was very yummy! I was out of Splenda, so I used Sweet N Low. The house smelled so good you just knew it would be delicious! Will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing! - 2/22/10

    I haven't tried this yet but may for Thanksgiving. Instead of Splenda I will use STEVIA, a natural no-sugar/no-calorie sweetner...it's the best! - 11/19/09

    Great! We used stevia, and nuked the potatoes. We could've done with slightly less sweetener, but it was great - tasted like sweet potato pie! - 12/25/12

    I wanted a recipe for mashed sweet potatoes, so I cubed the potatoes and boiled them in a potful of water. After draining, I added the splenda, cinnamon, and vanilla and mashed away. It needed a bit of liquid, so I tossed in some milk, as I would with mashed regular potatoes. It was wonderful! - 10/15/12

    I made these as mashed sweet potatoes. I doubled the recipe and baked 4 potatoes in the oven with my roast. Peeled and mashed them. Then I added the cinnamon and vanilla with 1/4 c. brown sugar and 2 Tbls. butter. They were delicious! Thanks for sharing. - 2/10/10
