Creamy Coconut Milk Asparagus Soup

Creamy Coconut Milk Asparagus Soup

The use of coconut milk and coconut oil makes this an even sweeter dish than traditional cream- or milk-based soups. Whenever I’m on a health kick, I refer back to this recipe to keep myself on track with my nutrition goals. The coconut milk adds a creamy texture that pairs well against the sharp crunch of the asparagus.
