I recently took my regular Instant Pot mashed potato recipe and converted it to healthy Instant Pot mashed potatoes recipe. If you are watching your calories, the worst part of mashed potatoes is all the butter, cream cheese, sour cream, and cream that you use make them taste so wonderful.
So, to make them healthier but just as tasty, you use a lower fat buttery spread along with fat free plain Greek yogurt and skim milk. Greek yogurt is a healthier option to use in comparison with sour cream, but it give almost the same results. It’s an easy swap in about any recipe. I served these mashed potatoes as part of a recipe that I will be sharing with you all tomorrow. Neither my husband or daughter noticed the difference between my regular mashed potatoes and this healthier version.
This recipe for these healthy mashed potatoes is only 5 points for me on my WW personal points. I calculated out how much my regular Instant Pot mashed potato recipe would be in WW points. It would be 23 points for 1/6 of the recipe. That’s a big difference!
- RUSSET POTATOES

I adapted this recipe from my recipe for Creamy Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes.
