Smashed Apples and Sweet Potatoes from

This is a simple recipe that makes a sweet side dish. It tastes like apple pie, but its healthier!


  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 Granny Smith apple – peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/8 cup milk


Place the sweet potato in a medium saucepan and fill with enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and simmer for about 20 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat, drain and set aside. Melt butter over low heat in a small saucepan. Mix in the sugar, cinnamon and allspice. Add the apple slices, cover, and let simmer for 5 minutes, or until the apples are tender. Mix the apple mixture into the drained sweet potatoes along with the milk. Mix well using an electric mixer or just a fork until potatoes are mashed.

Dawn’s Note: Top with brown sugar and crushed  pecans.
