How to make puree from sweet potatoes?

There are several ways to mash sweet potatoes once they are cooked. Each technique will lead to a different structure:

  • Potato Masher: This gives you a bulkier texture depending on how long you mash them.
  • Fork: This is a great alternative if you don’t have a potato masher and also if you prefer a slightly rough and sturdy texture.
  • Food processor: Using a food processor will result in an ultra-smooth texture, but make sure you don’t overmix the sweet potatoes or they will have a rubbery texture.
  • Immersion blender: You get a finer texture than using a potato masher, but not as smooth as using a food processor.
  • Stand Mixer: Similar to a food processor, this will result in a smooth and creamy texture.

You can use an immersion blender to prepare the puree. Read our reviews of the best hand blenders and find out who won in our comparison!

Another variation of sweet potato puree

  • You can leave the skin on the sweet potatoes, which will result in a more rustic taste.
  • For more flavor and creaminess, use coconut milk for puree.
  • Instead of boiling sweet potatoes, try baking them . Preheat the oven to 200°C. In a medium bowl, toss sweet potatoes with oil, salt and pepper. Place sweet potatoes in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake until done (about 30 minutes).
  • Add chopped nuts or fruit to the puree.
