Made with only 6 simple ingredients, these Paleo Maple Whipped Sweet Potatoes are perfect for serving on holidays, as a simple side dish, or meal prepping.
It’s no secret that I love potatoes, and you guys clearly do too. We make these Crispy Sheet Pan Roasted Potatoes at least once a week for a side dish with dinner, and these Spiralized Rosemary Potatoes have become one of the most popular recipes on my blog after just recently sharing them! I mean… what’s not to love about potatoes though. They’re starchy/carby, take on any flavor you want them too, are so easy to prepare… and are just YUMMY!
These Paleo Maple Whipped Sweet Potatoes, however, take potatoes to a whole new level! They’re super light and fluffy, have sweetness from the potatoes and just a tiny bit of maple syrup, and they’re SO easy to make… Like 15 minutes easy!
Recently, when I went out for dinner – I had a sweet potato puree that was SO decadent, I couldn’t get it out of my head. It was fluffy, perfectly sweet, buttery smooth, and just delicious. It almost felt like I was eating a dessert! It’s also something that I totally would’ve never guessed to order. I’m not a huge sweet potato fan (I know, I know… I just prefer regular old white potatoes!), and when I go out to eat I’d rather have something I know I love than try something new (I’m totally not adventurous in that way!)
Once I tried this though… I was hooked, and knew I wanted to make it for myself at home! I’m not sure what they used in the restaurant, but my recipe only has 6 ingredients – takes 15 minutes to make, and tastes just as delicious, so I’m calling that a win! Here’s the recipe for you:

These potatoes would be amazing at your Easter dinner this weekend. I bet your family wouldn’t even know they’re healthy. Otherwise – they’re a great weeknight side dish. Perfect for pairing with Chicken Cutlets and my healthy green beans almondine!
