Maple Orange Mashed Sweet Potatoes

This Maple orange smash sweet potato has been inspired on my kids , they love sweet potatoes, oranges and also love maple syrup so that’s how when they were babies actually I began making this dish and then I’ve been improving it to the point that it’s a MUST of our family traditions now .
That’s how come nowadays we use this dish either with marshmallows or the nuts on top for some extra yumminess. Plus the warm spices as clove and cinnamon.
And actually it’s a perfect dish to balance any savory protein that you are making.
