These healthy Ninja Foodi mashed potatoes are so creamy, delicious, and easy to make! Mashed with whole milk Greek yogurt, you get that sour cream flavor and thick, creamy texture with an extra dose of protein in the mix. Use an Instant Pot for the same results!


Units Scale
  • 3 lbs. Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/4" slices
  • 2 cups chicken broth (or water + 2 tsp salt)
  • 3 tbsp butter (+ more for topping)
  • 1/2 cup whole milk Greek yogurt
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • chives for topping


  1. Pressure cook the potatoes. Place the potatoes and broth (or water and salt) in your pressure cooker. Cook on high pressure for 10 minutes (pressure will build first for ~15 minutes) with a quick release. Remove the cover, then carefully drain the potatoes, but do not rinse!
  2. Add butter and mash. Carefully add drained, steaming hot potatoes back to the pressure cooker pot with the butter, and mash until smooth. Try to keep the butter as close to the hot potatoes as possible so that it melts fully.
  3. Stir in other ingredients. Add Greek yogurt, salt, and pepper. Stir evenly into the potatoes to form a smooth, even mixture. Top with chives, pepper, and more butter!


  1. Potatoes: You can use Russet potatoes for this recipe as well. I prefer peeled potatoes, but you can leave peelings on if you don't mind a less smooth consistency.
  2. Pressure Cooker: You can use an Instant Pot or Ninja Foodi for this recipe! I like both of these pressure cookers, especially the 'keep warm' setting, which is super helpful for keeping the potatoes warm and fresh in there until you're ready to serve them.
