Do you want to experiment more with your Crockpot? Here are 10 healthy Crockpot desserts that are incredibly easy to make. Give them a try!
Desserts are usually the most fun part of a meal, but they can also be the most challenging. Between heating up your oven, finding the right pan size, and watching your cake rise, cooking desserts from scratch can be a hassle.
But what if I told you there’s an easier way? That’s right: desserts in a Crockpot! I kid you not. 🙂
With just one appliance to clean at the end of it all, these recipes will have your family asking for seconds (or thirds). And best of all? They’re healthy — so much so that my husband has been known to eat them with breakfast!
Yes, you can make desserts using the Crockpot! The slow-cooking process is ideal for desserts that require long periods of time to bake, like casseroles and pies. If you don’t have a lot of time to cook, all you need is a Crockpot and some simple recipes (and, luckily for you, I have plenty of options at the end of this article!).
When it comes to desserts, we all have our favorite recipes. But what about those days when you don’t have time to whip up a sweet treat? The answer is simple: slow cooker desserts! With this handy appliance, you can make delicious desserts in minutes — no oven required. Just put the ingredients in and turn on your Crockpot and voila! Your dessert is done before you know it.
Crockpots are designed to cook slowly over many hours at low temperatures. As such, they’re perfect for making dessert — especially if you’re serving a crowd at dinner or throwing an evening party! Here are some reasons why:
- A Crockpot allows desserts with longer cooking times (like cakes) or higher temperatures (such as soufflés) to be made at home without requiring constant attention from your oven or stovetop burner.
- By baking food slowly in the moist heat environment of a wireless remote-controlled slow cooker, food gets better flavor than it would from high heat on an oven rack for example – and also retains moisture better too!
- Crockpot desserts are easy to make and there’s little skill involved. You can be a total beginner when it comes to desserts and you’ll still be able to ace this Crockpot thing!
- You can leave the house while your dessert is cooking.
- Clean-up is easy because there aren’t any pots and pans to wash! (Just one less thing to do after dinner.) The only thing that needs cleaning up is the Crockpot itself — and it only takes about 10 minutes! For me, this is THE biggest advantage of them all!
And in case you’re wondering what kind of desserts can you make in a Crockpot, here’s a quick list:
- Pies, cobblers, crisps and crumble.
- Cakes, cheesecakes and custards.
- Cookies and bars.
- Ice cream, frozen yogurt and gelato.
- Mousse & pudding options like chocolate fondue!
It’s easy to make desserts in the Crockpot, so you’ll never have an excuse for not making one again. The best part? You don’t even need any special equipment. All you need is a crockpot and some ingredients, which are all available at your local grocery store.
If you’re convinced, I invite you to scroll down to find my hand-picked list of 10 healthy Crockpot desserts that are incredibly easy to make. I hope this list of healthy Crockpot desserts will help you find some new and easy ways to treat your family. I’m excited to try out some of these recipes myself!
Happy cooking! 🙂
