Healthy Mashed Potatoes

These Healthy Mashed Potatoes are creamy, absolutely delicious and made lighter with Greek yogurt, less potatoes and a whole head of cauliflower!  The perfect side dish for your holiday table or weeknight dinner.

Yield: 6 Servings 1x



  1. Place the potatoes only (hold off on the cauliflower for now) to a large pot of salted water and bring to a boil.  Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and let the potatoes simmer for about 15 minutes.
  2. Add in the cauliflower florets and continue to simmer for an additional 8 to 9 minutes, until cauliflower and potatoes are soft and fork tender.
  3. Drain the potatoes and cauliflower then add them back into the pot they were cooked in.  Add the milk, Greek yogurt, chicken broth, butter, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  4. Mash the potatoes using a potato masher or blend everything using an electric hand mixer (or stand mixer) until you get a nice creamy texture.  I personally prefer to use a hand mixer as it really gets the potatoes perfectly fluffy!
  5. Transfer mashed potatoes to a bowl, taste and season with additional salt and pepper, if needed, and garnish with fresh thyme and chives.  Enjoy!
