Yummy side dish for any season. I tend to eat sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes all year around. Good side for the holidays too!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the cranberry juice, milk, salt, sugar, and sweet potatoes in a medium saucepan.
  2. Cover and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes fall apart, about 35-45 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and mash with a potato masher (or ricer) in the saucepan, or transfer to a suitable dish for mashing if using a nonstick saucepan.
  4. Stir in dried cranberries and pepper.

We took this dish to a Small Group luncheon and it went over very well. I did make a few changes because I don't use whole milk, 1.I used heavy cream instead 2.I covered the top with small marshmellows. I found out it really does not need them.
