Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this with a twist When I was doing my clean eating I made mashed sweet potatoes but I didn't use the almond milk or butter. I also added crushed pineapples and walnuts. Either way it was very tasty. Truvia helps make it a little sweeter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from "Sweet" sweet potatoes I really liked how the flavor was. The only mistake was I needed brown sugar!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Man o' Man, Fantastic I am a lover of sweet potatoes even before Truvia existed, however, my love of sweet potatoes has increased monumentally with Truvia and this Truvia recipe. Surely, in years to come, all those high calorie traditional enhancements to sweet potatoes, particular at holiday time--such as brown sugar and marshmallows--will be eagerly and appreciatively replaced with Truvia.
