  • 1# of sweet potatoes, pealed & cut into 1″ cubed
  • Water for boiling
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 4 cloves
  • 2 star anise
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (or regular milk if it’s easier for you)

Throw all the ingredients (other than the coconut milk) into a pot and boil for about 15 minutes.
Strain the potatoes. Pick out the spices. Add the coconut milk. MASH. EAT.

This is my go to sweet potato recipe. I eat it before, during, and after almost every lifting session. Sometimes I leave out the coconut milk, and it’s still tasty, just not so smooth. Sometimes, I add butter if I’m feeling like I want some more fat.
