21 Day Fix Skinny Smashed Sweet Potatoes will become your favorite 21 day fix recipe side dish!
21 Day Fix Skinny Smashed Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite foods that I never actually make. Do you have any foods like this? Ones you love but never think to make? We don’t actually make any type of potatoes all that often. I usually reach for pasta or rice when I am putting together the starch component of our meal, but this side dish is so good and so healthy that I think I will have to add it to our normal repertoire!
When I do make potatoes, I usually make smashed potatoes (which is just my lazy version of mashed potatoes.) I normally use butter and milk to help moosh up my potatoes, but this time I decided to replace those with protein packed Greek yogurt. I was scared that this could end up in disaster, but after one bite, I knew I had stumbled on a winner! The yogurt made the potatoes creamy and tangy, which paired with a little agave nectar and cinnamon, was the perfect combination of tangy and sweet! These 21 Day Fix Skinny Smashed Sweet Potatoes are so good and are made even better because they are healthy and can be used for the popular diet, the 21 Day Fix by Beachbody.
Have you seen the sweet potatoes that you steam in the bag in the microwave?! These have changed my life…seriously. If you see these at the grocery store, stock up! If you try these 21 Day Fix Skinny Smashed Sweet Potatoes, please let me know! And if you have other delicious Fix Approved recipes, please share them as well! I would love to have more in my arsenal! At the bottom of this post I have linked to 28 other 21 Day Fix Recipes, please check them out!!
Skinny Smashed Sweet Potatoes (A 21 Day Fix Approved Recipe)
- kinny Smashed Sweet Potatoes
- 4 medium sized sweet potatoes cubed and boiled, or steamed in the microwave
- 3/4 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
- 2 tbsp. agave nectar
- 1 tbsp. cinnamon
- salt and pepper to taste
Cube peeled potatoes and boil them until tender or cook until tender in the microwave. Remove skins if you used the microwave method.
While still warm, place potatoes into a medium sized mixing bowl. Add yogurt and smash with a potato masher, heavy wooden spoon, or whatever your desired method is. Taste for seasonings and add salt and pepper. I did not use much here because the potatoes were delicious as is.
Drizzle potatoes with agave and then sprinkle with cinnamon and brown sugar. Garnish with more yogurt to mix in later if desired.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
(I used this recipe for the 21 Day Fix and measured out my serving in the yellow container. I counted this recipe as 1 yellow and 1 red because of the yogurt.) Enjoy!

how do you count this recipe for the 21 day fix?
Measure it out in your yellow container. Because of the amount of yogurt in it, I counted it as 1 yellow and 1 red. Thanks for stopping by!
If it makes 6-8 servings and you only use 3/4 cup yogurt for the whole recipe – wouldn’t it be less than 1 full red per serving?
Yes I am definitely overestimating when it comes to the red container. You can get 6-8 yellow sized containers of the recipe, depending on how big your sweet potatoes are. I didn´t want to just count the yellow though because of the protein in the yogurt, so I counted an entire red container. You could probably say it is only 1/2 a red, or even 1/4, depending on how much you eat, but I rather overestimate than under!
I agree! Thanks for the great recipe!
Thought we couldn’t have sugar
Debbie, I use a miniscule amount. Just a sprinkle mostly for color. You could definitely leave it out!
I love your recipes. Is there anyway to get them all at once instead of clicking on each individual one?
Thank you for your blog.
Hi kim! Thank you! I am not exactly sure what you mean, but if you would like to see an index of all my recipes at once you can click the recipe index at the top. At this time it is just the links to each individual recipe!
how many servings does this recipe make?
Hi Amanda! It is hard to determine because everyone’s idea of a medium sized potato is different, but I would say 4 adult serving sizes as a side dish. If you are doing the 21 Day Fix, you could get easily get 6-8 containers full of sweet potatoes.
You can also roast the sweet potato instead of boiling or steaming and it’ll add an extra layer of flavor without actually adding something to it. It makes them sweeter 🙂
That would be delicious! I love roasted veggies but never thought of roasting a potato before mashing them! Thanks for sharing!!

Thank you so much for including my recipe and for stopping by!!
Hi Amanda, This recipe looks great. I LOVE sweet potatoes, I was just wondering how much brown sugar I should use in the recipe. Thanks.
Hi! I just used a sprinkle across the top, it was probably around 1 tsp for the entire bowl.
Hi! I love this recipe (found on pinterest) – how many calories would you say one serving would have?
Hi Katie! I’m sorry but I’m not sure! I’m really not good at figuring out calorie counts and it would also depend on your brand of yogurt. I would add the calories of one sweet potato plus your brand of yogurt to determine the calorie count.
There was way too much cinnamon for our taste, will cut it back next time but otherwise good!
I tend to go heavy on the cinnamon because it is one of my favorite flavors, but I am glad you liked it otherwise and will try it again! Thank you so much for stopping by and letting me know!!
Exactly how many calories are in each serving? And what is 1 serving of these?
Devon, I don’t include calorie counts in recipes because t I have no idea how to accurately count them! This recipe is for the 21 Day Fix, so a serving size is the size of one yellow container, or about 1/2 a cup.
Appreciate it for this grand post, I am glad I observed this internet site on yahoo.
