Cuisine: American
Servings: 4 servings


  • 1 pound sweet potatoes
  • 1 banana
  • ½ cup fresh pineapple
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Peel and cut the sweet potatoes in to 1-inch cubes. One pound of potatoes should yield about 3 cups.
  • Peel the banana and dice the pineapple.
  • Add the potato to a pot filled with cold water and bring to a boil. Always start with cold water. Never add potatoes to water already boiling.
  • Add some salt and cook until fork tender. Takes 10 to 12 minutes.
  • When the potatoes are done, drain them and add them back to the pot. Heat the potatoes over medium high heat for a couple of minutes to dry them out a bit.
  • When done, add them to a bowl for mashing.
  • Add the banana, pineapple, orange juice, and honey to the bowl and mash to your desired consistency. Be sure to not over mash them. You want them a little bit chunky.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings with salt and pepper.
