Coconut Mashed Sweet Potatoes Cooking tips:

After you add the milk to the sweet potatoes you may need to let more moisture cook off the potatoes so give it 1 to 2 minutes to boil off the access liquid, as you continue to mash them. You can use a potato masher instead of a fork to speed up the process.

Can you make ahead?
