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.
- 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
- 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)
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.
