Creamy Carrot Soup (paleo, vegan)

This easy Creamy Carrot Soup with ginger and coconut milk requires only a handful of basic ingredients and not much time to prepare. Healthful, flavorful, vegan, and paleo, this is a something-for-everyone comfort food!

During the fall and winter when it gets dark early and the weather is chilly, I love curling up to bottomless bowls of soup.

Creamy vegetable soups are some of my favorites! Sweet Potato Soup always gets the limelight, but I enjoy creamy carrot soup even more! 

Carrot soup is naturally sweet, a touch earthy, and pairs magnificently with Thai flavors like ginger, cumin and coconut milk. That’s the route I’m taking with this carrot ginger soup recipe!

The recipe contains no cream, butter or oil. Simply all squeaky clean ingredients that leave you feeling nourished and happy.  The texture is pillow-y smooth and the flavor is sweet and subtly curry-like with a little kick. 

Let’s dive in to the details!

Keto Hot Chocolate (With a Paleo Option)

Keto Hot Chocolate Recipe with a paleo option. This dairy-free, vegan, sugar-free, low-carb hot cocoa is a healthier alternative to the classic recipe.

Rich and creamy, you can play with non-dairy milks and refined sugar-free sweeteners to find your own version of hot chocolate perfection!

This post includes three different recipes for hot cocoa – keto hot chocolate, bulletproof hot chocolate, and paleo hot chocolate. 

One of my fondest memories from childhood was waking up to my dad’s homemade cocoa. He had a very specific way of making hot cocoa and the ritual was so special for me that I carried it into adulthood.

After I stopped drinking cow’s milk and consuming refined sugar, I continued making dairy-free hot chocolate that was either paleo or keto.

I’ve tried just about every iteration of sweetener and non-dairy milk and after much experimentation I can safely say light canned coconut milk and pure maple syrup make my favorite homemade healthier hot chocolate recipe. 

Serve it up with homemade coconut milk whipped cream and you’re in for a decadent treat!

There is so much room for variation when making healthier hot chocolate.

Let’s talk details!

Keto Chocolate Pie

This Keto-Friendly Chocolate Pie is grain-free, sugar-free, vegan, dairy-free, and incredibly rich and creamy! This mouth-watering, delicious chocolate pie recipe is a carb-conscious version of classic French Silk Pie and is perfect for sharing during the holidays and beyond!

What desserts are always present at your family’s gatherings?

In my family, there’s always both Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie at Thanksgiving, and always, always chocolate pie at Christmas…several, actually. One with nuts, two without 😉

…With plenty of whipped cream for engulfing the whole slice.

I’ve mentioned in past recipe posts that I’m all about embracing traditional family dishes, but have slowly over the years made my way through each and every one of them, adapting the recipes to different dietary needs along the way.

There are multiple people in my family who have to watch their sugar, be mindful of their carb intake, etc. so taking a classic family favorite and turning it into a version everyone could eat was a major win.

And you guys…this pie…is an absolute pleasure!
