    • You can use any brand of unsweetened almond milk for similar results. I’m not personally a fan of almond milk in mashed potatoes (this is a contributed recipe), but a lot of people are. You can substitute another type of unsweetened milk beverage, or even broth, if that’s what you have on hand.

  1. I don’t have dairy issues but I was intrigued by the recipe. I’ve always wanted to find a healthier alternative to cream for mashed potatoes and shamefully enough, I never thought of using a dairy substitute – such as almond milk. This will definitely be something I try out in the very near future. Thanks for sharing it.
