  • Prep time: 10-15 minutes
  • Cook time: 20-35 minutes
  • Total time: 30-50 minutes

Servings: 5-6 servings


  • 3 large sweet potatoes
  • 8-10 bacon strips
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp almond milk (or milk of choice)


  1. Wash and peel sweet potatoes
  2. Dice sweet potatoes into 1-2 inch cubes
  3. Boil water, place sweet potato chunks in water once boiling for about 10-15 minutes (until easily poked through with fork)
  4. While sweet potatoes are boiling, cook bacon strips. This can either be done in the oven (400 degrees for 10-20 minutes, until desired doneness) or in a skillet on the stove (about 2-4 minutes on each side, or desired doneness).
  5. Once bacon is fully cooked, chop bacon into bite-sized pieces.
  6. Drain water from sweet potatoes. Return cooked sweet potato chunks to pot and mash with a fork until chunky.
  7. Add remaining ingredients (including bacon pieces) and mix well. Continue to mash until desired texture.
