Well, obviously no butter and milk would be the lowest, but not the most tasty! You could used semi skimmed milk and a little low fat spread from your allowance. If you want a tasty mash, add a little parmesan, as it only takes a little bit to add a load of taste. You could also add some onions (if you cook them with the pots or garlic) or some chives if you have them. Another alternative is to add some low fat philly or similar to the mash, either plain or the one with garlic and herbs. Hope this helps
i would mash to potatos.. add a little garlic.. or some mustard.. thats loooosh!! erm.. some onions like someone else said.. or a tiny teenie bit of salt.. or a tiny bit of wostershire (sp) sauce.. oh i want some now.. hehe

Mmm...lovely! Just how comforting is mashed potato if you're fed up?
If you ever see any Sue Kreitzman cookbooks on charity shop bookshelves, or Amazon, and you're trying to live low-fat or no-fat, do have a look, because she probably invented no-fat cookery in the late 1980s. "Queen of Slim Cuisine", no less!
She lost half her body weight with CD (as wife/guinea-pig with Steve Kreitzman, our leading research scientist then, now boss of Lipotrim) but, as a professional cook, couldn't bear to live on it forever, so set out to develop fat-free but delicious recipes.
If your CDC is as old as me, s/he may have some of her books on their shelves - even possibly for sale!
Sue moved up to very-low-fat later on, which is even healthier, I think.
There are no less than 30 listings for potato in the index of her first book, "Cambridge Slim Cuisine", all pretty tempting!
(Googling her now leads to some very "interesting" sites - none of them forbidden by filters, I think...)
