Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Slow Cooker Pineapple Pudding
(251 calories | 13 12 11 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
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.
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!

Slow Cooker Pineapple Pudding
- 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)
- Ideal Slow Cooker Size: 1-½-Quart
- Spray the interior of the slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
- Mix the pineapple, almond milk, eggs, cornstarch and sugar together in the slow cooker until well blended.
- Cover and cook on LOW for 3 to 4 hours, until thickened, stirring 2 or 3 times during the cooking if you can.
- Serve warm with a scoop of light vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.
- 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.
