More About This Recipe
  • This is not your average mashed potato recipe. This dish is actually only 140 calories per serving and has an extra kick of nutrients thanks to the skin on the potatoes—leaving the skin on also gives it a nice presentation for family dinners and parties. This better-for-you version of mashed potatoes doesn’t skimp on the quintessential creaminess associated with this traditional dish—it simply uses skinnier ingredients like low-fat yogurt in place of sour cream and skim milk in place of half-and-half. Green onions and cheese give it an extra flavor boost, too! The only thing better than these potatoes being both delicious and skinny? They are made with just seven ingredients and go from stove to table in a short 30 minutes.
