Low Fat Mashed Potatoes

My elderly aunt taught me a lesson on making low fat mashed potatoes. After draining them, and using just a tiny dab of lowfat margarine, I start whipping them and adding, just a little at a time, fat free non dairy creamer.


It gives it a rich taste, thickens them, with no added fat!

Beverly, this is a great tip! I bet it tastes really good! I love mashed potatoes nice and rich, so to be able to make them that way while keeping them low fat and lower calorie is a great tip! Thank you.

Good Tricks Bev. I have sometimes used CoffeeMate (made with the boiling hot potato water and dry powdered CoffeeMate), and a little butter for enrichment. As long as the potatoes are cooked nice and tender to begin with and mashed up nice and smooth, they'll eat them.


They will not eat anything named "potato" that comes in a box. :-)

Thanks for sharing.
