  • 3 pounds Yukon gold potatoes, washed
  • 5 tablespoons ghee, softened
  • 1/2 cup nondairy milk*
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • for topping: ghee, fresh chopped chives, pepper...


  • Fill a large stock pot with water and some salt and bring to a boil.
  • While the water comes to a boil, prep the potatoes. Wash them and roughly cut into uniform pieces. Once water boils, add potatoes to the pot and cook until soft and fork tender, about 20 minutes. Strain the potatoes in a colander and let cool for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add potatoes, softened ghee, nondairy milk, and salt and pepper to the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment attached. Whisk until smooth and creamy, about 1-2 minutes, stopping every so often and pushing down the side and cleaning out the whisk. Make sure not to over mix. The time will depend on how you like your potatoes. We like them with a few chunks in them, but you can whisk until smooth. If you don't have a stand mixer, you can add potatoes back into your pot and use a potato masher or hand mixer.
  • Top with some ghee, fresh chives, and pepper and enjoy!


*I used unsweetened cashew milk, but you can use any kind you prefer. Almond or coconut (canned) would work great.
I prefer to leave the skin on for this recipe since Yukon gold have a very light and tender skin and we like a little texture in our potatoes. If you want super creamy potatoes, feel free to peel the skin.
