  • 1 1/2 lbs yukon potatoes
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter heaping
  • 2 tablespoons vegan cream cheese heaping
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Wash, peel, and chop the potatoes.
  • Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with water.
  • Allow the potatoes to cook and boil in the water for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Drain the potatoes and then return to the pot.
  • Add in warm almond milk, vegan butter, and vegan cream cheese.
  • Mash and mix the potatoes until combined.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Drizzle more butter and garnish with parsley.


You can add more flavor by using roasted garlic, caramelized onions, or even freshly chopped chives or other herbs. You could even add garlic in granulated form in a pinch.
We used 2 heaping tablespoons of butter and cream cheese, so it would be 3 tablespoons of each.
