Want to break away from tradition a little this season? If you’re ready to put a twist on your holiday food, then you should definitely give our Spiced Molasses Sweet Potatoes a try! These mashed sweet potatoes use a yummy combination of molasses, honey, and orange zest, so they have a unique flavor profile. We’ve also kept them skinny by using Greek yogurt instead of butter and cream. They’re packed with protein and nutrients, while maintaining that nice, creamy texture.
These sweet potatoes are the perfect combination of sweet and savory. They would make a great addition to any progressive Thanksgiving meal!
