Can I lower the points in this Weight Watchers sweet potato casserole?

The mini marshmallows and pecans add some points to this recipe but for the most part the points are coming from the sweet potatoes. 

If you really want to try and reduce the points you’ll have to cut back the amount of potatoes that you use and you can omit the marshmallows and pecans if you really want to.

I don’t think that this healthy sweet potato casserole really justifies alteration. It’s a low point side dish that is indulgent and delicious for the whole family.

How do I make these delicious baked sweet potatoes?

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F, spray an 8 inch baking pan with non-stick spray, and line a baking sheet with foil. 
  2. To roast the potatoes you’ll need to stab them a few times each and place on a baking sheet whole. Bake for 1 hour or until tender. Remove from the oven, cut in half and allow to cool for about 15 minutes. 
  3. Reduce the oven temperature to 350F. 
  4. While the potatoes are baking you can boil the carrots in salted water for about 25 minutes until they’re very tender. Drain and set aside when done. 
  5. Melt butter in a small skillet, cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring or swirling the pan occasionally. 
  6. Add cooked carrots, browned butter, and ginger to a food processor. Pulse until pureed. Scrap the sides occasionally to make sure you get everything an even consistency. Transfer this mixture to a bowl when done. 
  7. Next, add the insides of your baked sweet potatoes, milk and salt to the food processor. Puree until blended.
  8. Mix the sweet potato mixture into the carrot mixture. Stir until combined.
  9. Spread the whole mixture into the prepared 8 inch baking pan. Bake for 35 minutes. Remove from oven and add marshmallows before baking for 10 more minutes.
  10. Top with pecans and serve in 1/2 cup servings!
