Sweet Potato and Apple Soup Recipe

Sweet potato and apple soup

Freezer to Crockpot Soup

I have been trying to make soups and family friendly meals that freeze well. I love both apples and sweet potatoes so when my girlfriend offered this Freezer to Crockpot Soup recipe as part of our meal swap. I was delighted. We have previously hosted a soup swap together. They are awesome this is how you host a soup swap.

Soups that Freeze Well

If you are looking for more soups that freeze well you can try my list. You can click on the image above and it will lead you to recipes for all these wonderful soups. Speaking of wonderful soups this Sweet Potato and Apple soup was divine. It is gluten and dairy free so it was perfect for a family with people who have allergies.

Recipe was adapted from Gluten Free Recipe Box

Freezer to Crockpot Soup: Sweet Potato and Apple Soup Recipe


  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onion
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 4 red gala apples, 2 will be peeled and cut into 3/4-inch cubes and two will be cut length wise as a garnish to reheat in the soup.
  • 2 cups low-sodium gluten-free chicken broth (or vegetable broth)
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 – 3 dashes of nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp of fine sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp Ground black pepper

sweet potato soup


I would suggest using a blender. I love my Blendtec you can see my Blentec Review.

You need to cook  the onions in the  heated pan of olive oil. I would then place the remaining ingredients in the pan to cook. Once you have completed that I would place them in the food processor or mixer of your choice and blend until the texture is like baby food fine with minimal chunks.

Once your soup has cooled you can place it in freezer bags frozen flat.

I simply placed my frozen soup in my micro wave to defrost to the point that I could place it in my crockpot. I placed my crockpot on warm until I was ready to devour this soup. We served the soup with the two apples on the top so it had some crunch to it. We paired it with grill cheese. I was super!
