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, ADD:
  • 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)

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. 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.
