Slow Cooker Skinny Loaded Potato Soup, healthy comfort food!!! | The Cookie Rookie

Slow Cooker Skinny Loaded Potato Soup is perfect for Saint Patrick’s Day, but also any time you’re wanting healthier comfort food! I love an easy crockpot soup for the busy days. Just delicious and so easy.

Slow Cooker Skinny Loaded Potato Soup, healthy comfort food!!! | The Cookie RookieMy mom makes the best soup.  Try her Creamy Chicken Soup and you’ll know I’m right! That soup is amazing, and my all-time favorite…the only problem? It isn’t healthy.  I’m all for comfort food and I think good food should be splurged on, but when you’re able to eat a bit healthier, that’s never a bad thing.

She came up with this Slow Cooker SKINNY Loaded Potato Soup…and I’m hooked.

I’ll splurge on the chicken soup once a month and eat this every other day of the month.  It’s so good!

I LOVE this St. Patrick's day recipe! It's a nice change from the sweets and the soda bread and it looks absolutely delicious!
Cindy Sass
love those bowls - where did you find them?
    Becky Hardin
    Thank you! I'm 99% sure I got them at World Market. It was probably last year some time, but they might still have them!

I would love to try this recipe! Is there a way I could get a head start on it in the morning before I leave for work?
Heather
This looks so good! Do you have the nutrition information by chance?
    Becky Hardin
    Hey Heather, i don't currently have an app loaded to calculate that, but thinking of adding in the future if I find the right one :) My Fitness Pal or Best Food Facts are both great sites!
Karen
Delicious, and easy to make to boot! Definitely a keeper :)
Kathy Britt
I am wondering if I can prep everything the night before. Have you tried it? Just wondering if the potatoes discolor?
    Becky Hardin
    I have never tried it that way so I'm not sure! I think it would be okay but I don't know for sure. If you try it that way please let me know!
