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 Eggnog (Dairy-Free)

Keto Eggnog recipe made dairy-free using coconut milk. Rich, creamy, warmly spiced with nutmeg and inviting! This sugar-free eggnog recipe is flavorful, festive and cozy on a chilly evening!

The day I learned eggnog has actual egg yolks in it was the same day I decided it’s okay to ignore certain facts in order to continue loving something.

Having a selective understanding about food can certainly benefit our adventurous side. Alligator tastes like chicken, monkfish liver is an absolute delicacy, SPAM musubi is absolutely worth the gut bomb backlash, durian fruit can go back to the fiery hole from which it crawled, and egg yolks a fabulous eggnog make. 

The facts of life, foodie edition.

Having learned the truth about eggnog at the tender age of four, I was shocked when my uncle, who was visiting for the holidays, added egg yolk after egg yolk to his batch of cheer, but because it was made out of sugar and a bright future, I determined I could hang.

Dairy-Free Keto Eggnog made with coconut milk and sugar-free sweetener for a low-carb eggnog recipe

I did post an absolutely delicious Vegan Eggnog Recipe last year that was eggless and absolutely delicious, so I can’t say I have a strong opinion one way or another as to whether or not yolks should be mandatory.

But I will say, this Keto Eggnog recipe with yolks is pretty yum!

Recipe Highlights:

Because I can’t do fresh dairy like milk or cream, I made this Keto Eggnog recipe dairy-free using canned coconut milk. I also haven’t been consuming much sugar (natural or otherwise), so I opted for a sugar-free eggnog using sugar-free granulated sweetener. 

All things considered, this is a dairy-free low-carb eggnog recipe, marvelous for those who want to get their yolk on without excess sugar.
