Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Mash

by Skinny Ms.

Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Mash

This recipe is our Skinny Slow Cooker version of sweet potato casserole. We’ve removed all the garbage in traditional recipes and left you with a fabulously nutritious, simple to make, mildly sweet, and definitely tasty dish. We also make it in the slow cooker, so it’s easier and more convenient to prepare. Slow cooker methods cut a lot of the trouble out of cooking because you can just toss everything into the pot and let it cook on its own for several hours.

Like many slow cooker recipes, this is a great option when you are entertaining. It is especially great for a traditional holiday meal. Not only can you keep the dish warm in the slow cooker while you enjoy time with your guests, you are also serving everyone a healthier version of a classic holiday favorite. It is even a great option if you want to bring a dish to someone else’s home for the holidays.

NOTE: This data does not include the pecans.

Ingredients

  • 2 lb. sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • 1 cup apple juice, no sugar added, 100% juice
  • 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. allspice
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
  • AFTER COOKING, STIR IN:
  • Cinnamon and nutmeg to taste
  • Apple juice (see instructions)
  • Pecans (optional)
  • Honey or maple syrup to taste (optional for those who like a sweeter version)

Directions

Prepare your sweet potatoes and place in slow cooker. Add 1/2 cup of the apple juice (NOT the full cup) and your spices.

Cook on low 4-5 hours, until potatoes are tender. Recommend 3-4 quart slow cooker.

When potatoes are fully cooked through, using a hand blender, blend the sweet potatoes inside your slow cooker insert, adding the second 1/2 cup of juice. Season with more cinnamon and nutmeg to taste.

Top with pecans and enjoy.

Note: While this dish is yummy without the pecans, the pecans truly add the final touch to the flavor. Unless you have a nut allergy, we highly recommend the pecans. Do not be afraid of the fat in pecans. It is healthy fat a perfectly acceptable for Skinny eating.

    Love this recipe. Often sub unsweetened apple sauce for the juice.

  • Lynda M says:

    Healthy and yummy!

  • Georgia Mannino says:

    This is my vote. Sweet potatoes are very alkalizing.. I actually made something similar last Thanksgiving before I saw it here… As a Breast cancer survivor 4x's I follow a gluten free, sugar free, alkalizing menu as much as I possibly can…

    Georgia – I'm trying to figure out how to follow a more alkalizing meal plan as well. Do you have any resources that you've found particularly helpful? Thanks so much!

    This is my vote for favortie recipe to win the crockpot. I love this recipe because sweet potatoes are my favorite clean eating food!!

  • I made this recipe as posted for Thanksgiving, and it was terrific! It’s definitely going to be something I make regularly!

  • Ami says:

    We eat a lot of sweet potatoes in our house. I can hardly wait to try these'

  • Cynthia says:

    I just made this for Thanksgiving yesterday and it was a huge hit! We had a huge crowd and no one complained that it wasn't the highfat lots of brown sugar, marshmallow mash. Everyone insisted on the recipe. HOWEVER, there was a great deal left because I about tripled the batch and of course there was too much food. Today, I took 2 cups of leftovers and made a lowfat pie out of the mash with soymilk and some eggs, vanilla, etc. It is also out of this world! But as I was putting away the leftovers, I cleaned the spoon and thought, "I could eat this mash cold with a squirt of whipped cream, and it would take care of my pumpkin pie needs!"
