I eat bananas on an almost daily basis. Never in a million years would I think to mash it into a side dish. Let alone with sweet potatoes.

  • 1.5 lb. petit sweet potatoes about 4-5
  • 1 ripe banana peeled and sliced
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Microwave sweet potatoes according to package. Let rest to cool 5 minutes, then slice lengthwise. Scoop out the insides of the sweet potatoes (discarding the skins) and place in a large bowl.
  • Place sliced ripe bananas in the bowl, add the brown sugar, and the orange juice. Using a fork, mash until desired consistency. Serve immediately.


If you cannot find or do not like to use microwavable sweet potato bags you can peel and dice 1.5lb of sweet potatoes. Boil in a pot of water with salt for 15 minutes until fork tender.
*Like it spicy? Add 1-2 tablespoons of minced jalapeño to the sweet potato mash!
