3/4 cup lite coconut milk
1/4 cup agave or maple syrup

- Add 3/4 cup coconut milk (be sure to include both solids and liquid if not using a lite coconut milk
- Bring curry and coconut to a boil, then turn down to simmer.
- Simmer for 5 minutes
- Mix in 1/8 cup of maple or agave syrup, and 2 Tbsp of butter until the butter is melted.
- Whip in potatoes with a mixer or masher
