  • 2-3 pounds of sweet potatoes (I like to buy organic)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1-2 tablespoons ghee (I used the recipe on my site)
  • pinch sea salt and pepper (to taste)
  • Pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg - optional


  1. Wash, peel and chop sweet potatoes in small chunks.
  2. Place the sweet potatoes, water and pinch sea salt and pepper in the slow cooker.
  3. Make a parchment paper cover to be used to cover the sweet potatoes while cooking. I used the lid as a template to cut the parchment paper cover. (See photos)
  4. Place the parchment paper snugly on top of the sweet potatoes and place lid on top.
  5. Cook the sweet potatoes on high for 2-3 hours until sweet potatoes are tender. Using a potato masher, mash until creamy, add ghee, mix and serve.

  6. Yes, I know, delicious, huh! Enjoy!
