SWEET GINGER MASHED YAMS

Sweet Ginger Mashed Yams

5 yams (sweet potatoes), scrubbed clean

1/2 cup fat free half and half (or a non-dairy substitute)

1/2 cup Truvia Brown Sugar Blend

1 tablespoon minced ginger by The Ginger People

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon allspice

2 tablespoons molasses


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Wrap each yam in foil, then place on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes, until the yams are soft and can be easily pierced with a fork. Remove the pan from the oven. Transfer the pulp (and skins - optional) to a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer. Gradually add in the half and half, Truvia, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, molasses and sea salt and continue to mix for 6-8 minutes, until the yams are whipped and creamy. Serve warm.
