Introduction

Mashed potatoes are a versatile and nutritious dish that can be enjoyed even during the summer. Here are four fitness-friendly mashed potato recipes perfect for warm weather.

 Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Opt for light and creamy mashed potatoes made with low-fat milk and a touch of olive oil instead of butter. This reduces calories while maintaining a rich texture.

Garlic and Herb

Enhance your mashed potatoes with garlic and fresh herbs like parsley and chives. These additions not only add flavor but also provide antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Switch up the classic mashed potatoes with sweet potatoes. They're packed with vitamins A and C, fiber, and have a natural sweetness that makes them a delightful summer dish.

Mashed Cauliflower

For a lower-carb option, combine potatoes with cauliflower. This blend offers a similar texture to traditional mashed potatoes but with fewer calories and more fiber.
