Healthy mashed potatoes are velvety, smooth, and packed with flavour, with a fraction of the calories. Substitute with low-fat milk and chicken stock.


  • 2 lbs. russet potatoes (approximately 3 large potatoes), peeled and chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper (to taste)


  1. Place potatoes in a large pot and fill with salted water to cover the potatoes by about one inch. Bring to a boil over high heat, then turn down to low, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until potatoes are tender.
  2. Drain and place the potatoes back in the pot or into a mixing bowl. Mash the potatoes using a potato masher.
  3. Add Greek yogurt, milk, chicken broth, butter and olive oil. Whisk until light and fluffy. Add a generous amount of salt and pepper, to taste. Whisk until combined.
