Very Low Fat Cream of Sweet Potato Soup in the Crock Pot

I found this recipe online in a compilation of crock pot recipes. I have tweaked it heavily to my own dietary needs. This is a lovely creamy soup, but not one with a lot of zing. This would be best for someone looking for subtle flavors. It is almost like mashed sweet potatoes. I tried it with a dollop of fat free sour cream but I did not like that as much as leaving it alone. If you don't have enough broth just make up the difference with water. It worked fine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and slice the sweet potatoes. Put them and the broth into your slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for about 3 hours or until the potatoes are tender.
  2. Put the sweet potatoes and broth into a food processor (or use an immersion blender) and blend until smooth.
  3. Put them back into the crock pot.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Cover and cook on high for 1 to 2 hours (I left mine 3.5 and it was fine).

Yum Yum! I did as most other reviewers suggested and played with this a bit. I used 5 sweet potatoes, 1 onion, 1 apple, 1 can of condensed chicken stock and topped up with water. once it all cooked, I removed a lot of liquid (I was worried it would be too runny, and always easier to add liquid back in). I added it back until I got the consistency I liked (I also added cream to taste/consistency). And a nice big sprinkle of all spice. It was a huge hit at our Thanksgiving lunch. My almost 1 yr old daughter loved it too!

Loved this! Had to have something rich to warm me up on the first truly chilly day this Fall, and I'm so glad I found this recipe. Like some of the other reviewers, I opted to include some extra ingredients (onion, garlic, nonfat greek yogurt in lieu of half-and-half), and the soup was simply phenomenal! Satisfying, and VERY low in fat! Do yourself a favor and try this...

I'm not joking when I say this, but this is only about the 3rd or 4th from scratch/not from a packet soup I've ever made in my life, and its the very first "creamy" one I've ever attempted, in a crock pot no doubt. I'm a bit of a novice, (at 29 sadly) but what I'm getting at, is that this recipe was was so easy and basic and fool proof even I didn't screw it up. I even added 2 cut up apples and milk used a split of milk and 1/2&half. I was actually quite proud of myself for cooking something I would actually serve to another person and not be worried if it was good enough. A small spoonful of low fat sour cream and sliced green onion on top? hells ya.<br/>Thanks so much for this cooking boost of confidence- totally gonna try more healthy recipes now!
