This is the most incredibly delicious pumpkin soup I’ve ever eaten & everyone that has tried it agrees! It’s a great meal to cook up in big batches & freeze for a quick & easy lunch or dinner, plus it is extremely healthy & much lower in calories & fat than traditional coconut pumpkin soup as it uses coconut milk instead of coconut cream.
