  • 300 g taro peeled and cubed
  • 15 ml coconut oil or neutral vegetable oil
  • 30 ml condensed milk (or 15g granulated sugar) or to taste


  • Place the cubed taro in a pot filled with boiling water.
  • Cook the taro for 15-20 minutes, until fork-tender.
  • Drain the taro and while hot, mash the mixture with a fork (or potato masher).
  • While the taro is still hot, add in the coconut oil, condensed milk/sugar and mix until combined.
  • Note: if you prefer a silky smooth texture, you can run it through a food processor.
  • Let cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge until ready to use.
