Sweet potatoes - how to make light & fluffy

I am making sweet potatoes with maple & chipotle
- Bobby Flay recipe- and recipe calls for using a food mill or ricer to purée - I don’t have either of these. How can I make these light & fluffy sweet potatoes ?

Hi Ellie! Here's a similar recipe from a community member, Ashleyza, that doesn't call for a food mill or ricer: https://food52.com/recipes/14491-mashed-maple-chipotle-sweet-potatoes. I made this recipe last year and can't wait to make it again tomorrow! And if you don't have a food processor or immersion blender, you can use a hand-masher (or even big fork) and some elbow grease. Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you! This recipe is almost exactly like the Bobby Flay one:). I do have both the food processor and immersion blender, so that will work. Also, can I substitute the maple syrup with honey?
