These are definitely tasty as a lightened up side-dish for Thanksgiving dinner, but we love these so much we have them often. They are easy to make ahead and just reheat. Packed with nutrition, they are oh, so good!

This was a huge hit tonight. I slow baked the sweet potatoes like I always do (#275256), then I scooped out the flesh, mixed in everything except the sugar, and baked it in a dish. Miniature marshmallows are preferred in my house, so I sprinkled about a half cup of those on top. It was fantastic. Thanks for posting this yummy recipe.

- 2 ounces low-fat cream cheese
- 2 tablespoons skim milk
- 1 tablespoon sugar substitute (or brown sugar)
