Slow Cooker Nectarine Applesauce that is sweetened with apple juice instead of sugar. An easy and healthy treat!
This week I made this beautiful Slow Cooker Nectarine Applesauce. Applesauce is one of the best things to make in the slow cooker. I love how I can throw the ingredients in slow cooker in the morning, and in the evening its all done. All I have to do is stir and I have healthy snacks recipes all week long.
I made this sugar-free by sweetening with apple juice instead of sugar. I was a little weary that the apple juice wouldn’t sweeten this sauce enough, but it did awesome! The texture of the nectarines turned out a little chunkier than the apples, which is great because the nectarines have a pop of sweetness and great flavor. I had planned on freezing some of this, but every time I opened my fridge I ladled out myself a big bowl until it was gone!
Try it, you’ll like it! I promise! 🙂 It’s one of my family’s favorite from my collection of best crock pot recipes!

- When the cooking time is done, take a whisk and break apart the apples and nectarines, but be careful not to scratch your slow cooker while doing this.
