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

This Thanksgiving Idaho® potatoes have teamed up with Chobani, whose largest production facility is in Idaho and is known for its family of products supporting health and wellness, to create what might be the best mashed potatoes you've ever tasted. Three pounds of fresh russet Idaho potatoes are combined with a mixture of melted unsalted 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 is 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

  3. In a small saucepan, bring butter and milk to a simmer and cook on low until butter is melted.
