Crock Pot Mashed Potatoes

These Crock Pot Mashed Potatoes are the most creamy, flavorful mashed potatoes and I know they will be your new favorite side dish. So easy too!


  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 cups of broth (I used veggie broth but you can use chicken if you prefer)
  • 4 pounds of russet potatoes, washed, peeled and chopped into about 6 pieces each*
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • ½ cup of non-dairy milk
  • ½ cup of vegan mayo 
  • ⅓ cup of vegan butter, at room temperature
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place the water and the broth in the slow cooker and turn it on to your desired heat (low if you’re cooking for 6 hours, high if you’re cooking for 3 hours). Add in another cup of water if the potatoes aren’t fully covered.
  2. Clean and peel the potatoes. Chop them into large pieces and place into the slow cooker with the liquid.
  3. Cook on high for 2 1/2- 3 1/2 hours or on low for 6-7 hours.
  4. Once done, put the slow cooker on the “warm” setting. Drain the liquid from the potatoes and place them back into the slow cooker.
  5. Add in all of the remaining ingredients (the warmth from the potatoes will melt the butter) and mash the potatoes either using a potato masher OR using a hand mixer. 
  6. Leave on the warm setting while you prepare the rest of your meal OR enjoy immediately.
