Creammmmmy Goodness!! Pureed soups have always been so damn delectable. Perfect as an appetizer, or served with some super amazing bread it’ll take the trophy for the main course too. By making this with coconut milk, you add all the fatty flavor without any of the guilt and the tummy ache you get from heavy cream.

Let the blender do the hard part. Once your veggies are cooked perfectly, the blending process seems to not only make the perfect consistency, but it makes the flavors literally blend together super well. This is a perfect example of letting ingredients speak for themselves.

The carrots add a super sweet flavor while making it bright orange which I LOVE! Save a lil coconut milk for garnish or just drizzle with olive oil.
