Sweet Potato & Pumpkin Soup

A recent creation- this soup is creamy, sweet, savory and incredibly easy!


1 1/2 cups Pumpkin Spice Milk (recipe to follow)
2 Medium Sweet Potatoes
1/4 Tsp Sea Salt

Blend all till creamy and smooth in Vitamix.

Pumpkin Spice Milk ingredients:

1 Cup Raw Pumpkin Seeds (also known as Pepitas)
4 1/2 Cups Water
Pinch Sea Salt
1/4 Tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
4 Tbsp Raw Honey (+/-)

First blend seeds with water, then strain through nut milk bag and reserve pulp.
Next, pour milk back into Vitamix and add remaining ingredients. Blend for a few seconds and taste. If you want, start off with less honey, and continue adding more until satisfied.

* For those of you who would rather the soup be cooked, just leave the Vitamix on longer.
