Many people make these with heavy cream or half-and-half to make them extra creamy but I like to use skim milk.
I honestly can’t taste that much of a difference but I know the calorie difference is huge. This is so great for kids of all ages. It is easy to mash up if you have a child that prefers mashed potatoes or for babies (my 10-month old LOVES this stuff). It is a great alternative to your typical baked potato side dish. It is easy to adjust the recipe for crowds if you are needing a side dish for a potluck. Another benefit to this recipe is that it is inexpensive to make.
Potatoes are also so good for you! They have more potassium than a banana. Because potatoes are high in fiber, the help lower cholesterol and decrease the risk of heart disease. Potatoes are also high in vitamin C and vitamin B6. You can feel great about preparing this healthy dish for your family!
