Idaho® Potatoes & Chobani
Two Idaho Companies
One Perfect Bowl of Mashed Potatoes

This holiday season Idaho® potatoes have teamed up with Chobani to create what might be the best mashed potatoes you've ever tasted. It's a natural fit as Chobani's largest production facility is in Idaho and they are a company known for products that support health and wellness. Three pounds of fresh russet Idaho potatoes are combined with a mixture of melted butter and warm whole milk, then hand mashed to the consistency of your liking. Chobani® Whole Milk Plain Greek Yogurt is added for texture and taste. This recipe makes enough to go around the whole table!

Mashed Idaho® Potatoes with Chobani® Greek Yogurt


  • ¾ cup Chobani® Whole Milk Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 3 pounds Idaho® Russet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup finely chopped chives


  1. Cook potatoes in a pot of salted, boiling water until tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  2. Drain and return the potatoes to the pot and mash with a potato masher.
  3. In a small saucepan, bring butter and milk to a simmer and cook on low until butter is melted.
  4. Add mixture to potatoes and stir to combine. If necessary, mash potatoes further for smooth consistency.
    Optional: For a smoother consistency, place boiled potatoes in a stand mixer or use a hand mixer to whip until smooth.
  5. Add yogurt, salt, and pepper, and stir until fully incorporated.
  6. Transfer the potatoes to a serving bowl, and garnish with chives.
