White Sweet Potatoes "Batatas"

Mashed Batatas, White Sweet Potato
The white sweet potato, referred to as the "Batata" in my neighborhood, can be found at most Caribbean and Asian markets.  Here is a recipe that is unique and simple to prepare.

Mashed Batatas


2 medium sized sweet potatoes, white variety
1/4 of coconut or low fat milk
1 Lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon of lemon rind

2.  Peel skin off with your hands while rinsing with cold water.
3.  Place in a mixing bowl.
3.  Add the coconut or milk, lemon juice, lemon rind, and cardamon to the bowl.
