Items needed to make creamy carrot soup

  • Olive oil or avocado oil (I’ve been using avocado oil lately)
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Carrots (obvs)
  • Ginger
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Fresh orange juice
  • Coconut milk
  • Immersion blender or high-speed blender

Does it matter which kind of carrots I use?

Nope! I use baby carrots, because we keep them on hand for snacking and lunch. However, whole carrots would work well too, and you can keep the peel on. Fun fact: most veggies and fruits contain a large majority of their nutrients within their peel. (That’s why I keep the peel on my homemade applesauce sometimes!)

How to make vegan soup creamy and smooth

It’s all about the blender! The nice thing about this recipe is that the ingredients soften quickly and easily. However, using a good immersion blender makes it a fast and easy process, without making a big mess. I prefer this one. It has multiple attachments for easy use!

Before I owned an immersion though, I simply used my Vitamix to blend it together.

If you do use your blender and it’s plastic, make sure you let the soup cool before transferring.

Health benefits of creamy carrot soup with ginger and coconut milk

I like to make this when I’m feeling sick and need some immune system support.

  • Carrots are high in beta carotene , Vitamin K, fiber, potassium, and antioxidants.
  • Ginger is essential for this recipe. It has a warming affect on the body, and is shown to support digestive health and immune support.
  • Fresh lemon and orange juice ramp up the antioxidant and Vitamin C levels to nourish the body.
  • Onions and garlic are your best friend if you’re sick. These support the body because of their anti-microbial properties, and give the soup depth and flavor.
  • Coconut milk is a good fat to support healthy cells, plus it’s the secret ingredient to make it extra creamy.

Want to hear a carrot joke?

Do you know how to make gold soup? You put 24 carrots in it! (Cue slow claps.)

But seriously, this soup is healthy and awesome. It is vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and paleo-friendly! (What am I missing here? Is it Keto approved too?) But that doesn’t matter, because everyone who has eaten it gobbles it down. Kid-approved too!

I like eating this as a light lunch, and it would also be a great soup to serve in a full-course meal. The texture is rich and creamy without being too filling.
