Sweet Potato and Pineapple Mash

I was hungry for sweet potatoes and had planned to make my roasted sweet potatoes but decided to try something new. I had no idea how this was going to turn out as I was not following a recipe at all but was inspired by my lovely Aunt Cathy’s sweet potato souffle – I just wanted something a little lighter.  You could cut some of the honey and maple syrup if you wanted to save some calories.  I had this as a side dish but also ate it cold one night for dessert.

Ingredients
3 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons milk
dash of salt (about 1/8 teaspoon)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup crushed pineapple, do not drain

Directions
1.  Place potatoes in a medium saucepan, covered.  Bring to a boil and cook potatoes are soft enough to easily pierce with a fork (they will fall apart).
2.  Drain potatoes and place in mixing bowl.
3.  Add honey, milk, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, and maple syrup.  Mash potatoes using a stand mixer, hand mixer, or mash by hand with a potato masher.  I used a stand mixer on medium for about 2 minutes.  Mash potatoes until smooth. 
4.  Mix in crushed pineapple.

Serve warm or try it cold!
