(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 200- Slow Cooker Peaches)
These slow cooker peaches are my answer to the recipes for grilled peaches I’ve been seeing everywhere. I love the idea of grilled peaches, but not the reality of standing over a hot grill even for the 5 to 10 minutes required.
I’ll take my slow cooker(s) over the grill any day.
All I can say is YUM! Talk about maximum reward for minimum effort.
Skinny on Slow Cooker Peaches
Just cut your peaches in half, remove the pits, and layer them in the bottom of your slow cooker skin side down. Drizzle with a little orange or apple juice, pop in a cinnamon stick and let them cook for several hours.
We enjoyed our warm-from-the-slow-cooker peaches with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream for dessert. And then again for breakfast with a dollop of thick and tangy Greek yogurt, drizzle of honey, and sprinkling of pistachios.
I’ll definitely be making these slow cooker peaches again this summer. And plan to experiment with nectarines, apricots and plums too.
According to my calculations each generous serving of slow cooker peaches has 102 calories and 3 Weight Watchers Points Plus.
- 2 pounds peaches
- 4-inch cinnamon stick
- ½ cup orange or apple juice
- Greek yogurt or whipped cream (optional for serving)
- Ideal Slow Cooker Size: 5 to 6 Quart
- Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits. Leave skin on the fruit. Lay the peaches skin side down in a single layer in the slow cooker. (It's okay if you need to have a few pieces in a second layer.) Snuggle the cinnamon stick down into the fruit. Drizzle the juice over the peaches.
- Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 6 hours or until cooked to your desired tenderness.
- Remove the cinnamon stick before serving. Serve warm, at room temperature or chilled with yogurt or cream if desired.
