Sweet Sweet Mashed Potatoes

3 large sweet potatoes
½ cup vegan sour cream
½ cup vegan cream cheese
½ cup soy butter
1½ T. salt
1 ½ T. Agave syrup*
1 t. cinnamon
Peel and cut up sweet potatoes into somewhat same sized 1” by 1” chunks.  Put in pot, cover with water and 1 t. salt. Boil until tender.  Heat up butter, sour cream and cream cheese for about 50 seconds in microwave. Add all ingredients to sweet potatoes and mash.  With electric mixer mix until smooth. 
Tip- Cut up extra sweet potatoes into cubes and freeze.  Fry up in coconut oil for some yummy sweet potato hash browns!
*Agave syrup is from the Blue Agave Plant. Tastes similar to honey but sweeter so you don’t need as much. Find in the baking aisle at Whole Foods and the Natural aisle at most grocery stores.
