• 6 sweet potatoes (about 7 C measured) – peeled and diced
  • 1/2 C (1 stick) butter
  • 1/4 C water or apple juice
  • 1/2 C maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Place a slow cooker liner bag in your crockpot (*see Notes below)
  2. Add the peeled and diced sweet potatoes to the crockpot
  3. Slice the butter and place on top
  4. Pour in the water or apple juice 
  5. Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 hours – DO NOT OPEN the lid during the cooking time
  6. When the cooking time is done, add the maple syrup, heavy cream, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt
  7. Using an electric mixer, beat until smooth OR use a potato masher and mash by hand


  1. Serve with additional butter if desired or transfer to a large baking dish, add mini marshmallows and broil until browned
  2. For easy clean up, I always use a slow cooker liner bag – make sure if you use a slow cooker liner bag, that you buy the specific liner bag that is made for Slow Cookers, DO NOT use anything else or it will melt and ruin your food!
