Cooking : Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Coconut Milk


Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Coconut Milk : Not So Little Tummy Style

After we failed the last time, we determined  to get the recipes right, using the right ingredients (sweet potato, DUH).

And we even got directions from the maker of  “From Brazil to You” (Thanks Denise!). After we read her explanation, we got quite fired up to try this again.

Source recipe :

From Brazil to You

What we think about the recipe:

Well, if you read our post before, you will know our thought about this recipe.

How we make it + Accidents :

We can’t find bacon.

Why is this always happening?

What we think about this:


 I am officially regretted doing the first one with potato, because this one is simply superb! LOVE IT. The ‘awkward’ taste from previous trying was definitely coming from the potatoes.

For me, this is a light dish with sweet taste and a hint of savory from the coconut milk. And when we add a bit salt, it taste perfect.

And it’s easy to make too. Definitely going to be one of my comfort food. Yummy!

P.S. With or without bacon this dish is still delicious.


I’m glad I give this recipe a second chance.

I’m glad Denise give us advice.

Because even though without bacon, this mashed sweet potato taste good! I don’t really know how to describe it, but it taste “complete” not awkward like our previous (NOT) sweet mashed potato. The coconut milk compliment sweet potato, cilantro give a kick to it, i bet if we put bacon into it, this gonna be perfect.

Conclusion :



This is one of the dish that actually could get you loving it without doing too much. Definitely a win!

Trying Out: Mashed (not) Sweet Potatoes with Coconut Milk, Bacon, and Cilantro


Mashed potatoes with coconut milk, bacon, and cilantro : not-so-little-tummy-style

Sarah Speaking here!

I have love and hate relationship with carbs. Well, i’m a carbs lover, since we (me and Dina) live in Indonesia, there is no way we can hide ourselves from simple carbs.

Our national staple food is white rice! But i notice, when i eat white rice 3 times a day, i will gain 1 kilo the very next day! and if i eat white rice 3 times a day for 30 days, well, you do the math.

Therefore since I’m on diet, I try to stop eating carbs.

When i said try to stop well.. It means none, NADAAA.. CLEAN! And I miss it so bad and decide it’s time for a cheat day!

To be said, eventhough i want to make it my “cheat”, i certainly want a healthy one. And of course, I drag Dina to it! And continue to make this post!
