Even mashed potato aficionados won't be able to tell that these creamy, garlicky potatoes are "skinny" thanks to fat-free sour cream and fat-free milk.


Cooked red potato(es)

8 small, or 4 medium, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks

Garlic clove(s)

4 clove(s), large, peeled

Fat free sour cream

¼ cup(s)

Fat free skim milk

¼ cup(s)


2 tbsp(s), fresh, minced

Table salt

tsp(s), or to taste

Black pepper

pinch, freshly ground, or to taste


  1. Combine potatoes and garlic in a large saucepan and pour in enough water to cover; set pan over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat slightly and boil until potatoes are fork tender, about 8 minutes; drain water from saucepan.
  2. Add sour cream, milk and chives to pan; mix until combined. Mash mixture with a potato masher until smooth (or leave some lumps if desired); season to taste with salt and pepper. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.
