Cream Cheese Whipped Potatoes

Comfort food at its finest! A bowl of yummy whipped potatoes can warm anyone, even in the coldest of temperatures. The cream cheese flavor sends your taste buds soaring.


  • 2 pounds potatoes
  • 3/4 cup nonfat milk
  • 4 tablespoons low-fat cream cheese
  • 4 tablespoons nonfat sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Black pepper to taste


  1. Peel potatoes; cut into small chunks. Cover with water, bring to a boil and simmer until fork tender; about 20-30 minutes.
  2. Drain and return to pot, reducing heat to low. Add remainder of ingredients and heat through (potatoes mash better when other ingredients are warm).

Alternative Preparations

  1. Cook potatoes per directions ahead of time, drain, cover and refrigerate in a microwave-safe container.
  2. Just before serving, add remainder of ingredients and microwave until hot, about 6 minutes total — stopping to stir once at 3 minutes. Whip as per remaining instructions.
  3. Mash with hand mixer or with electric mixer.
