Blackberry-Peach Slow Cooker Crumble
Topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or Greek yogurt, this simple summer dessert is a great way to satisfy the sweet tooth while reaping the nutritional benefits of summer fruit. Keep the peach slices no less than 1/2 inch thick; any smaller, and they may lose their shape when cooked.
Freshly-sliced bananas and pineapple meet soft vanilla ice cream and a savory cinnamon-flavored sauce in one decadent dessert. Fresh fruit is always best, but for the sake of convenience, precut pineapple is also worth reaching for.
If you’re an apple lover, look no further than this tasty cake recipe that boasts a double helping of applesauce and dried apples in its batter. With only 1 to 1-1/2 hours in the slow cooker, this apple cake is the perfect ending to a fall feast.
Small pearl tapioca combined with coconut milk and fresh pineapple makes a simple tropics-inspired treat. The key to success is using small pearl tapioca, not instant or minute tapioca. Fresh mango or papaya works equally well as a substitute for the fresh pineapple.
Nothing says "autumn" like the fragrance and flavor of cooked apples, especially when they're filled with a mixture of sweetened currants and walnuts and spiced with cinnamon. Serve these apples warm from the crockpot with low-fat frozen yogurt.
