I know how much I love my crockpot apples and I had made some smashed sweet potatoes with apples before, so I figured I would give it a shot in the crockpot.

4 apples (there are six in the picture but I didn’t use them all!)
peeled, sliced & diced
1 sweet potato, peeled, sliced & diced
dash of all spice
sprinkle of ground ginger
healthy coating of cinnamon
(seasoning can be altered depending on how “spicy” you want the mix)
1 tablespoon vanilla favoring
You dice them
Sprinkle them
Dump them in your crockpot (this is a small 2-3 quart one)
Cover and cook for about 4 hours.
This pot only has an on/off setting, not hi/low so know your pot.
When all is said and done, mix them up with a spoon and it should mash together
easily. If they don’t break up, cover and cook for another 30 minutes, or until soft.
Can serve as a side or as a dessert with some whipped cream.
I will have to get a better final project picture!
Using the amount I used, it makes about 4 – 1/2 cup servings @ 3 points plus each.
(if served as a dessert with whipped topping, the topping would be extra)
And it tastes absolutely fantastic!

I love to save money with coupons, and help keep my life on track with Weight Watchers. I became a lifetime member in September of 2008 and have been able to keep off the 40 pounds I lost. I used to not be an adventurous eater, and I am still not by some standards. I am just a picky eater gone rogue. I love experimenting with new recipes!
