The Best Mashed Potato Recipe Ever (VIDEO)

Perfectly creamy mashed potatoes is what all of us potato mashers are after. Most of us attempt to acheive creamy perfection through copious amounts of cream and butter unaware that there's a better (and healthier) way.

Even though we're big fans of how all that fat makes the potatoes taste, it's probably not a good idea to be consuming a mountain of butter on a regular basis. (Yes, we want our mashed potatoes on a regular basis.) And thanks to the folks at MDRN KTCHN, you don't have to.

MDRN KTCHN shared their secret to getting the creamiest mashed potatoes and it comes in the form of diastatic malt powder (and is a completely dairy-free recipe). This natural ingredient breaks down the big potato starch molecules into smaller sugar ones. This means that even on a microscopic level your potatoes are creamier and slightly sweeter.
