Amazingly easy and delicious! I'm going to bake my sweet potatoes from now on instead of boiling. Baking causes water to evaporate, leaving an intensely sweet and flavorful potato. Absolutely no sugar needed. In the past, I've boiled my sweet potatoes, which made them lose a lot of their flavor. Pureeing in a food processor gave them a creamy and airy quality that I never got with mashing by hand. The only changes I made to make it healthier was to use fat free buttermilk, 1% milk, and half the butter. It was still unbelievably creamy with these substitutions. My husband, who doesn't care for sweet potatoes went back for thirds.
