How to make creamy mashed potatoes without adding too much fat?

  • I like to use Yukon Gold potatoes, they have a buttery texture and golden color.
  • When the potatoes are still warm, I drain them and add a combination of milk, broth and sour cream with just a small amount of butter for flavor.
  • To mash the potatoes I like to use a potato masher or a hand mixer to get them extra whipped. I don’t recommend an immersion blender, it will make it pasty.


  • Potatoes – if you want to sub out the potatoes, you can use russet or Idaho potatoes.
  • Dairy Free – sub the milk for dairy free milk and swap the sour cream for this dairy-free heavy cream.
