Sweet Potato & Coconut Soup

Sweet potato and coconut soup paleo recipe

Satisfying and simple to make, my Paleo soup recipe is filling enough for a dinner or would be a great lunch to take to work. It’s easy to make, tasty and very warming. If you are okay with dairy then you can drizzle some double cream on top. I hope that you enjoy it.
