Gather the ingredients.
Peel the potatoes and boil in water for about 45 minutes, until soft. Okinawa sweet potatoes take longer than regular potatoes to cook, so make sure they are quite soft.
Drain the water and mash with coconut milk. Add more coconut milk until the desired consistency is reached.
Add garlic and sea salt (kosher salt would also be ok) and a touch of black pepper, to taste.
As a traditional Kauaian recipe, this is to be served with a little bit of aloha. Enjoy!
