A healthier yet just as tasty version of the classic Thanksgiving side dish, sweetened with pure maple syrup and fresh orange juice.


  • 4 large sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • Juice of a medium orange
  • Zest of half a medium orange
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Pierce sweet potatoes several times with a fork.
  2. Bake sweet potatoes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil for one hour.
  3. Set potatoes aside to cool. Once cool enough to handle, peel off the skin. Place sweet potato flesh in a large bowl.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients and mash together using a fork or potato masher until smooth and creamy.
