I named it this because I had sweet potatoes and some left over butternut squash in the house I wanted to use up, I actually like the taste better than sweet potatoes mashed alone or butternut squash alone (shhhh not yours mom!) The contrast was awesome! So if your wondering what the secret ingredient is outside of sweet potatoes mashed it’s the butternut squash!!
3 Sweet Potatoes, Peeled & Cubed
Quarter of a butternut squash, cubed
2 Tbsp of light butter
1 1/2 tbsp of ground cinnamon
I peeled and cut my sweet potatoes and the butternut squash into small cubes, the smaller they are the quicker it cooks!
I use a steamer to cook mine.
In a mixing bowl combine the steamed veggies with butter, cinnamon, and use your eye for the skim milk, it depends on how thick you like your mash! 🙂 Wala!! Instant sweet goodness!!
