Kid Friendly Healthy Slow Cooker Creamy Tortellini Soup

Slow Cooker recipes are my best friend! Dump, stir, walk away and come back to the most delicious meal– and this recipe is no different! Your kids are going to love this because it’s similar enough to the classic chicken noodle soup. I’ve also made some notes in the post so you can make changes where you need to make sure your kids rant and rave about this slow cooker soup!

Why is it healthy?

Creamy soups usually consist of lots of cream. That’s what makes them creamy, so delicious, and so high in fat!  So for my Healthy Creamy Tortellini Soup I swapped out the cream for milk!  I used whole milk but you can use 1% or whatever fits your family’s needs.  This soup is also packed with celery, carrots and onions to get those veggies in those tummies!

Chicken Noodle Soup… But Better

When I was a kid I would always eat soup when it was pouring down rain outside or when I was sick in bed.  It’s just so cozy and warms your whole body! When I was making this in my slow cooker, it filled the entire house with that warm, cozy smell.  Ahhh… so perfect.  And the tortellini is just genius!

Mix and Match and Swap

I love making a recipe your own!  So feel free to change things up.  I already talked about what changes to the milk you can make, but you can also leave out the milk all together for allergy purposes–just add more chicken broth/stock instead.  Mix up what type of tortellini you use, I used cheese in mine. If you want to make it vegetarian, use vegetable stock and no meat!

I made this in my Instant Pot using a few modifications and it was excellent! First, I read through the tips here: https://www.superhealthykids.com/the-ultimate-guide-for-making-any-crockpot-recipe-in-an-instant-pot/ and then did the following: 1) cut the chicken, raw, into 1/2 inch pieces, 2) sautéed the onion until translucent, 3) added the garlic, celery, and carrots, 4) added the chicken and sautéed it until almost cooked through, 5) added 3 cups chicken broth and 3 cups beef broth, 6) pressure cooked on high for 25 minutes, 7) natural release for 5 minutes, 8) then full vent release, 9) added frozen tortellini, 10) high pressure for 5-7 minutes

This soup was delicious, I just tried it for the 1st time. But I will use heavy cream instead next time so it’s thicker.
