Garlic Mashed Potatoes with Protein
Our protein-packed garlic mashed potatoes are a spin on Naked Nutrition’s Protein Powder Mashed Potatoes Recipe.
While the original recipe calls for red potatoes, you can use any type that you like or happen to have on hand. You can also easily double this recipe to make a holiday-sized portion, or even triple it and set some aside to freeze for a homemade treat on a hectic night.
Half a head of garlic should definitely be enough for this recipe, but we’re not here to tell you how to live your life. As always, feel free to substitute plant-based options for the sour cream, butter, and milk. If you prefer a thicker, more traditional texture, you can also use heavy cream.
The measurements for the spices are also more of a guideline and you should feel free to add other herbs and spices to taste. You can also add even more of a garlicky kick to your dish with garlic-flavored olive oil.
You can certainly use a potato masher and whip things up the old-fashioned way, but an electric mixing makes quick work of the hard task.
