  • 6 russet potatoes
  • 1.5 cups coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup safflower oil
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 5 slices of gluten free bacon


  1. Wash and cube the potatoes, leaving the skin on.
  2. Add the potatoes to a large pot, cover with water and bring to a boil.
  3. Cook the potatoes until they are very fork tender.
  4. While the potatoes are cooking, cook the bacon in a separate pan until they are fully cooked. Set aside to cool when done.
  5. Drain the water and add the salt, pepper, 1 cup coconut milk and safflower oil to the pot.
  6. Using a hand mixer, blend until the potatoes are creamy. If they need more moisture, add the 1/2 cup of coconut milk and then 1-2 tbsp of coconut milk at a time and blend until your desired consistency.
  7. Taste test throughout and add salt and pepper if needed, but remember that the bacon will add a salty flavor too.
  8. Crumble the cooked bacon strips and stir by hand into the mashed potatoes.
  9. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If you prefer a vegan version, you can leave the bacon out and replace it with salt to taste. I recommend adding 1/2 teaspoon of salt at a time, mixing and taste testing before adding more.
