Slow Cooker Pineapple Pudding

      

(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 143)

I don’t think I’d ever heard of pineapple pudding until seeing it recently on Southern Plate, where it made my mouth water.

So, imagine my delight, when I came across a lighter, easier variation of pineapple pudding for the slow cooker.

It’s got just 5 ingredients, all of them staples in my kitchen.

I was able to toss this easy pineapple pudding together in less than 10 minutes Sunday afternoon.

Slow Cooker Pineapple Pudding

It thickened up beautifully in just a few hours :-)

The instructions say to serve this pineapple pudding warm with a little scoop of ice cream or frozen yogurt, or a dollop of whipped cream.

But, since it was Sunday, I decided to get fancy and give it a southern twist. I made little pineapple pudding parfaits by layering it between a couple of vanilla wafers.

We enjoyed this light and luscious treat while watching Downton Abbey. The perfect way to end a lovely weekend :-)

Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple, undrained
  • ¼ cup water (I used almond milk)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 12 vanilla wafers (for making parfaits, optional)
Instructions
  1. Ideal Slow Cooker Size: 1-1/2-Quart
  2. Spray the interior of the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Mix the pineapple, almond milk, eggs, cornstarch and sugar together in the slow cooker until well blended.
  4. Cover and cook on LOW for 3 to 4 hours, until thickened, stirring 2 or 3 times during the cooking if you can.
  5. Serve warm with a scoop of light vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.
  6. Or to make parfaits, place 1 vanilla wafer in a small glass or pudding dish. Top with ¼ cup pudding. Repeat with another vanilla wafer and ¼ cup pudding. Top with a little whipped cream and vanilla wafer for garnish. You’ll have enough for 4 parfaits.

I love inspirational/motivational quotes. They do for my brain, what delicious food does for my body :-) I thought it would be fun to begin sharing some of my favorites. So, here’s a little food for thought…

“Every strike brings me closer to the next home run.”
~ Babe Ruth

This is something I have to keep reminding myself. Over. And over. I have a huge fear of making mistakes and of being seen as anything less than perfect. To grow, I know I have to push myself outside of my comfort zone, and give myself permission to fail, make mistakes and look like a fool. It isn’t easy.

This year of crock pot cooking is helping me get comfortable sharing my recipe fails, which is great. Every time I screw up I learn more about crockpot cooking and about myself too.

I’m also a nut for weight loss tips. So, I’m planning to share one of those daily too :-)

“For every deprivation, there is an equal and opposite binge, sooner or later.”
~ Unknown Author

This is exactly why I had to let go of my dieting mentality forever and learn to adjust my lifestyle slowly and steadily to achieve lasting weight loss that I could then maintain. Dieting and deprivation only led to temporary losses, which I always ended up regaining.

Do you have a favorite motivational quote and/or weight loss tip? I’d love for you to leave it for me in the comments!!

    I love to remind myself that my weight loss is a journey not a destination. I am so glad that you post recipes with ingredients that are easily available to someone who lives in a rural midwestern town.

      Barb, that is such a good reminder! I keep telling myself the same thing. Slow and steady wins the race and I’ll never be “finished” with my journey of trying to live happy, healthy and slim. The greatest thing is that this approach takes away much of the stress, so I don’t get upset with the little ups and downs that used to totally derail me :-) Thanks for taking the time to share!!

    I made this tonight in my tiny crockpot. We had never had pineapple pudding before and were really intrigued.

    We skipped the cookies since vanilla wafers are not available here in Holland. I also used pineapple in juice (not syrup) and lessened the sugar to 1/3. We used coconut/palm sugar and loved that flavor combo. Would highly recommend that. We will definitely make it again and continue to play around with it. I love puddings!

      Thanks, Susan. I love puddings too! Coconut/palm sugar sounds like a delightful combo. Which makes me wonder how a little shredded coconut might be stirred in! I appreciate you taking the time to drop in all the way from Holland to leave a comment :-)
