- 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, for topping (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. Unless you have a nut allergy, we highly recommend the pecans. Do not be afraid of the fat in pecans. It is healthy fat and perfectly acceptable for Skinny eating.
