These Paleo and Vegan Mashed Potatoes are just as good, if not better, than traditional mashed potatoes! They’re light, creamy, and flavorful, making it hard to believe they’re dairy-free and clean-eating! Now you can eat all the mashed potatoes you want without the unhealthy calories!
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, like 18 days away! I’m sure if you haven’t completed your Thanksgiving food list already, you’re busy figuring it out. Well, before you finish it, make sure you add these Paleo & Vegan Mashed Potatoes to the menu! 😋
Besides being allergy-friendly for your Paleo/gluten-free and vegan/dairy-free friends, they’re actually really yummy—like to the point where people won’t notice they aren’t full of butter and milk. They’re also much lower in calories! Win win! 😉
My dad gave me the idea to make my own version when he made our family some dairy-free mashed potatoes. There’s a reason why we (my mom, brother, and I) call him the potato king. 👑 He knows his potatoes. 😂
I thought for sure that I’d never have mashed potatoes again once I gave up milk. It was pretty heart wrenching because my mom makes THE BEST mashed potatoes ever!! 😍 Like if you think you or someone you know makes the best, it’s because you haven’t tried hers. Sadly, she doesn’t make them anymore since she gave up dairy entirely. 😔
It was pretty hilarious because when I asked her how much butter she used in her famous mashed potatoes she started cracking up with laughter. I knew it must’ve been an astronomical amount … maybe like a whole stick or something. Then, after the glee passed, I got serious and said, “come on, how much? A stick?”
Her eyes got wide. 😳 “A stick?” Then she started laughing again. “Probably three or four … more like four.”
I was shocked! Plus, that wasn’t including all the milk she put in there. I seriously don’t know how my family wasn’t obese. 😂😂
Anyways, thinking about my mom’s mashed potatoes makes my stomach rumble—it couldn’t not—but when you really think about how unhealthy and damaging it is to your body to eat like that it makes you take a second thought. 😒 Maybe you don’t have to put 4 STICKS of butter and however many cups of milk and whatever else in tradition mashed potatoes to make them tasty. 😏
You can just use regular russet potatoes, some chicken/vegetable broth or water (I know, crazy!), spices, and maybe some ghee to make them totally delicious! 🙌🏼 These Paleo and Vegan Mashed Potatoes have got you covered! 😘
Now, during Thanksgiving when you have you first plate-full of food before your eyes, you don’t have to rub your stomach and say, “Oh, god, I’m gonna regret this tomorrow.” Or, “This is gonna make me so fat.” These are all common expressions I hear during Thanksgiving. 😆 Nonetheless, Thanksgiving isn’t about indulging in fattening, sugar-filled, unhealthy food and treats, it can be about eating delicious wholesome dishes that make you feel good, ease your mind, and that are so simple to put together. 😊
Throw away the misconception of Paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and refined sugar-free meals and desserts being “disgusting” or “dissatisfying” because I, the creator of Sabrina’s Sinless Secrets, have a myriad of recipes on here to prove that notion wrong, along with a lot of other amazing clean-eating food bloggers that I follow! 👍🏼 Beaming Baker, Paleo Running Momma, Texanerin Baking, Amy’s Healthy Baking, Bakerita, and Food, Faith, & Fitness to name a few. 😊
So many people are changing to this lifestyle because of the way it makes you feel, look, and appreciate REAL food! So, give it a try this holiday season. Don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone, because clean-eating is so much tastier and better than the traditional, processed food that you’re comfortable with. Promise. 😘
These Paleo & Vegan Mashed Potatoes are light and creamy, full of flavor, and undeniable! Another thing that makes them more desirable, it takes no time at all to prepare them and they’re super budget-friendly. P.S. you can also make them any other day of the year too, not just for Thanksgiving. 😜
First start by peeling four large russet potatoes.
Then, cut them into cubes so they soften faster.
Add the potatoes to a large pot of water and bring to a boil.
Once they’re fork tender (about 20 minutes), dump them into a colander and rinse with water.
Return the potatoes to the same pot you used to boil them and mash them with a potato masher.
Once mashed, add the ghee (if using) and chicken/vegetable broth or water and stir until smooth and creamy.
Lastly, add the spices and give it a whirl with your stand or hand mixer to make them extra creamy! You’re ready to serve!
I hope you get a chance to try these Paleo & Vegan Mashed Potatoes this Thanksgiving or even tonight. 😏 If you make them don’t forget to snap a picture 📷 and share it with me on social media, tagging @sabrinassinlesssecrets and hashtagging #sabrinassinlesssecrets so I don’t miss it!
