    • 4 sweet potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped
    • 3 cups non-dairy milk
    • 2 tsp vegan butter
    • 3 tsp organic brown sugar
    • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
    • Salt to taste

  5. Once you have reached your desired texture add the vegan butter, brown sugar, garlic powder and salt. Mix together and taste. Adjust to your flavor preferences.
  6. Transfer into an oven safe dish any size will work just depends how thick you want the mashed potato layer to be. Cover the whole thing with marshmallows.
  7. Bake in the oven for about 10-15 minutes until the marshmallows are expanded and melted.
