“My husband is lactose intolerant but loves mashed potatoes so I adapted them so that he could eat them w/o worry. He ended up loving them. I'm not fully clear on vegan but I'm pretty sure that these would be considered Vegan as well. I suggest some sort of electric mixer because all the lactose free products are pretty firm products.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 lbs potatoes (about 4 large)
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons lactose-free butter (I use earth's best)
  • 2 tablespoons lactose-free cream cheese (I use tofutti's better than cream cheese)
  • 2 tablespoons lactose-free sour cream (I use tofutti's again)
  • 14 cup plain soymilk
  • 34 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
