Skinny Girl Mashed Potatoes

With bathing suit season right around the corner, most of us are trying to cut calories where we can and maybe skip that second chocolate chip cookie (yes, I said second). These mashed potatoes have all the flavor of traditional mashed potatoes without all the calories. I made small substitutions with more "skinny girl" friendly ingredients and didn't have to sacrifice flavor at all. Serve these mashers with meatloaf, tenderloin, chicken or eat them all by themselves- you will be so very happy you did!

You Will Need:
  • 3 Yukon gold potatoes (they are the best for mashing)
  • 1/4 cup 1% milk
  • 1/4 cup fat free half & half
  • 1 tsp margarine
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp fat free sour cream

Here We Go:
  • Cut potatoes into cubes (the smaller the potato the faster it will cook)
  • Bring medium saucepan to boil and add potatoes
  • Cook on medium for 20-25 minutes
  • Drain potatoes and return to pan
  • Mash potatoes with potato masher or fork
  • Add milk, half & half, margarine, sour cream, salt and pepper
  • Stir all ingredients together

Serves 2-4
Happy Feasting!
