No Milk No Butter Mashed Potatoes Recipe

Hey there,

How is everyone today?   I woke up this morning, made my cup of coffee, had breakfast and headed for my desk.  I started reading everyones posts. (need to catch up) when I realised that I forgot to press PUBLISH for my own post. The reason why I forgot to press Publish is because I was doing a bit of research on Yoga classes. 🙂  Wooo hooo, I did Yoga for about 7 years before having to stop due to the accident. But nowww I am going back and trying to find one in my area.  🙂

Since Easter is coming up in a couple of weeks, and Fasting is a main part of Easter, I thought you might enjoy a different type of Mashed Potatoes.  I know that you are probably wondering Olive Oil and Lemon blaahhh, but believe me it does taste good!!  If you are not Fasting, and want a lighter version of Mashed Potatoes, give this recipe a try. 

I had to look up the recipe again, because I couldn’t remember if I needed to add Vegetable or Olive Oil.  Yes, I do forget sometimes!  So, I have to go back to look up ingredients and recipes. 🙂  

I was testing out my camera on manual to see if I can get the Aperture, ISO and all of that stuff done correctly, but looking at my prep photos I still need to work on it!!  So much to learn ahhhhhhh 🙂

Have a great weekend everyone!! 🙂



  • 500 grams of Potatoes peeled

    I’m glad I’m not the only one to have forgotten to publish her own posts from time to time! ;) That’s fab news about getting back into yoga. I hope you find a class in your area. Do you think you’ll do it at home too? Great recipe. I must admit I’d never thought mashed tatos could really be done without any milk or butter. Olive oil is an interesting one & a great alternative. The finished product looks lush, not dry or too wet. I wonder if sunflower oil would also work..? Caz xx

    Thanks so much!! Nope you are not alone, there are more of us heheheheh. I have found a class and I do prefer leaving the house. I work part time at home, plus the blog and workshopsI basically I hardly leave the house. So, I want to get out, go to a class, meet people laugh and have fun. I don't want to do Yoga at home. :) I have unemployed, and at home for 4 yrs, and I was depressed, so this opportunity (working) gives me a small income and I can finally do something and that is get out and go to a class. :)
