Creamy Pumpkin Soup Brings Together Many Fall Flavor Favorites
Pumpkin season is here, and I don’t need any excuse to whip up this creamy pumpkin soup for the family. It’s not like you can’t have it throughout the year but there’s something about fall that gets me excited about a yummy bowl of orange goodness.

That bright orange color of a pumpkin lets you know that it’s high in beta carotene and vitamin C. You can also feel good about your choice because pumpkins are a great source of fiber. Fiber helps us feel satisfied so that makes this bowl of soup a great option for a light meal or snack in between meals. And let’s not forget that pumpkins are low in sodium and fat.
Making this soup is pretty easy and if you make a large batch, you can store it in the fridge for later. I have recently started saving soup in large ice cube trays. Who knew they were good for anything else other than water? By saving the cubes, I can heat up a serving or two whenever I need to.

This recipe calls for pumpkin puree. Be sure that you don’t pick up the one that is used for making pies. That one has added sugar. If you are up for it, you can also go ahead and make your own puree. I like to use coconut cream in this recipe. I just love how it blends with the pumpkin for a creamy kiss. If you are not a fan, feel free to swap that ingredient out with another plant-based milk if you aren’t having dairy.

Looking for a way to get the kids involved? This soup is for you. My daughter loves to add all of the ingredients to the blender. Every moment is a learning experience. We get to talk about measurement and flavors while spending time together. Of course her favorite part is pressing the buttons and watching the ingredients whirl around.
