Dairy free mashed potatoes

Lets talk potatoes!

If there is one food that absolutely makes me happy it has to be the potato. Mashed, whipped, fried, diced, sautéed, and all the other ones i can’t think of. To me no holiday is complete without a potato. Since going dairy free I’ve been worried about missing out on all the delicious potato options. My usual mashed potato recipe includes sour cream, butter, and cream cheese. All things i can no longer eat without a swift trip to the restroom (#oversharing). So I’ve been on a mission to find substitutes for all the things i love.

As I’ve been exploring dairy free cheese options I’ve discovered a brand that has completely satisfied my craving for creamy goodness. Kite Hill has saved me from giving in to regular cream cheese and consequently ending up with a stomach ache. I eat it with gluten free crackers and pretzels, and now in my mashed potatoes.
