Servings 4 Servings


  • 1 pound Okinawan Sweet Potatoes, peeled
  • 0.5 cup sour cream
  • 0.5 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons Hawaiian honey
  • Salt(to taste)


  1. Peel sweet potatoes and simmer them in water until they are very tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Drain well.
  3. Mash by hand for a chunkier texture, or puree with a mixer for a smooth consistency.
  4. Fold in the sour cream, yogurt, honey and salt to taste.



You can make this a richer dish by adding a pat of butter during the mashing, or keep it healthier by replacing the sour cream with yogurt.
