Why We Love This Sweet Potato Soup Recipe:

This sweet potato soup is veggie loaded, easy to make and SO good for you! Here’s why we love it:

  1. Wholesome ingredients – Typically sweet potato soup is loaded with lots of funky ingredients, heavy cream and loads of cheese. This soup doesn’t have that!
  2. Creaminess from veggies – Most sweet potato soup recipes have a lot of heavy cream in them, but this soup just uses NO milk! It gets all the creaminess from broth + veggies.
  3. Easily customizable – Whether you need to make this lower salt, lower carb.. there’s a substitution for basically everything below!
  4. Veggie loaded – There is one serving of veggies per serving of soup, and you can easily bulk up that amount by adding more carrots, celery or onions.

Tips for Blending Hot Soup

You can blend this soup with an immersion blender, regular blender, or even a food processor

Make sure to be very careful when blending soup in a regular blenderIf you are blending hot soup, it can lead the blender to steam up or build pressure which can result in the top popping off. To avoid that, here are our tips for blending hot soup in a regular blender.

Allow the soup to cool for a few minutes if you can. It’s best not to take this right off the stove/instant pot/crockpot and put it in the blender. Give it a few minutes uncovered/off heat to release some steam.

Blend the soup in batches. It’s probably best to divide this in half and blend it 1/2 the batch at a time. By doing this you’re leaving room in the blender for the soup to move around.

Remove the center cover from the blender and cover with a towel instead.  Most blender tops have a removable plastic piece in the center. Take this center piece out and put a clean dish towel over the opening while blending. (You don’t want soup on the ceiling!). Doing this allows the steam to vent out and prevents pressure from building up in the blender. Make sure to hold your hand over the dish towel to avoid it from moving/splattering.
