  • 3 lbs. russet potatoes, quartered
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced


  1. Begin by preparing your potatoes. Wash and pat dry. Then use a sharp knife to quarter.
  2. Place in a large pot and fully submerge with water. Add about a 1/8 teaspoon of salt.
  3. Turn to high heat and bring to a boil for 20-25 minutes or until you can easily pierce the potatoes with a fork.
  4. Strain potatoes and place them back in the pot. Add salt, pepper, butter, Greek yogurt, and herbs. Use a hand mixer (a potato masher will work!) to mash potatoes and slowly add in milk until you’ve reached the desired consistency.
