  • 3 pounds Yukon Gold Potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons Vegan Butter
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 3-4 Garlic Cloves minced
  • ½ cup Almond Milk unsweetened
  • ½ cup Canned Full Fat Coconut Milk
  • ½ teaspoon Salt more to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon Black Pepper more to taste
  • Chives or Fresh Thyme for garnish


  • Peel and chop the potatoes. Add to a large pot filled with cold water. Bring to a boil. Boil under fork tender, about 10-15 minutes depending on how large you cut the potatoes.
  • Drain the potatoes and return them to the pot. Set aside.
  • Melt the butter to a pan on low heat. Add the olive oil and garlic and cook until garlic is golden and fragrant.
  • Add the melted garlic butter, almond milk, canned coconut milk, salt and pepper and mash the potatoes until smooth and creamy.
  • Taste and adjust the following: Salt, black pepper and vegan butter.
  • Top with chives or fresh thyme and a pat of vegan butter. Enjoy!


Storage: Allow to cool completely then store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 to 5 days.
Use room temperature almond milk and butter. When these ingredients are warmer, they meld with the potatoes much better than when they are cold. I recommend leaving them on the counter while the potatoes cook.
