Super-Smashed Potatoes

Updated: Mar 14, 2022

My kids named these mashed potatoes after they tasted them and said they were a smash hit! They could not believe they were dairy-free and vegan.

My daughter, Lauren, loves mashed potatoes, but of course she can't have the traditional recipe with milk and butter. So, I tweaked my grandmother's recipe by using almond milk and vegan butter. Adding the right seasoning is the key to these potatoes tasting better than the original.

I served them to my picky boys this week. I didn't tell them I made them vegan, and they ate them up with no questions asked!


Vegan Mashed Potatoes


  • 2 pounds potatoes - cut into chunks (about 6 cups of cooked chunks)

  • 2 tsp. salt

  • 1/2 tsp. pepper

  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil

  • 4 Tbsp. vegan butter

  • 1 Tbsp. chives

  • 1/3 cup almond milk (we like Elmhurst Milked Almonds)


  1. Peel potatoes and cut into chunks. Boil until soft - about 10 minutes.

  2. Drain potatoes and put in a mixing bowl.

  3. Add the salt, pepper, olive oil, vegan butter, chives, and almond milk.

  4. Beat with mixer until smooth.

Note: You may have to adjust the salt/milk amounts to achieve the consistency and taste desired.
