Ingredients

  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 3 large)
  • 1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted 
  • 1/2 cup light cream 
  • 1/3 cup agave syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt 
  • Zest of 1 large orange

Directions

Boil the sweet potatoes in a large stockpot until soft, about 25 minutes; drain. When cool enough to handle, peel the potatoes and transfer them to a large bowl.
