This delicious, yet simple Mashed Sweet Potatoes Recipe is the perfect low calorie side for many fall dinner recipes. Sweet and savory, each half cup serving is just 2 Points and packed with fiber and vitamins.

The trick is to bulk it up with a bit of butternut squash. You can’t taste the difference, the texture is about the same, but it helps to cut out some carbs and calories, thus keeping the Weight Watchers Points low.

A bit of nutmeg helps give these mashed sweet potatoes a bit of seasonal flair, and the sour cream and half and half help keep them moist and creamy without the extra fat of lots of milk and butter that are used in traditional mashed potatoes recipes.

This is an excellent healthy fall recipe to serve this season! Enjoy.
