Made with coconut milk and dried coconut sprinkled on top like a light dusting of snow, these Vegan Whipped Coconut Sweet Potatoes went over BIG when I tested it out with my fam, who deemed it perfect for our upcoming, massive Thanksgiving feast. Don’t be put off by the fact they are vegan, no one will ever know the difference.

I first fell in love with the combination of coconut and sweet potatoes when my kids were babies. Sweet potatoes are totally lovely on their own, but trying to make them fluffy without adding milk or cream is a tall order. As an attempted solution I started mixing naturally creamy coconut milk into baked mashed sweet potatoes. Not only was the resulting taste incredible, but the potatoes whipped up delightfully fluffy. The dish was always a favorite with all of my munchkins when they were babes and it still remains a favorite dish of theirs — not to mention my part-time vegan husband.

This Whipped Coconut Sweet Potatoes is basically the grown up version of a kid food classic in our house. A healthier version of traditional whipped sweet potatoes, I make them with a touch of maple syrup to boost the sweetness, a hint of cinnamon for that unmistakable holiday flavor, and sprinkling of coconut “snow”, all resulting in the ultimate Thanksgiving sweet potato side dish.
