Coconut Pumpkin Soup


Comfort in a bowl! This soup warms you up from the inside out. 

It’s getting chilly out there, so I thought I would share with you my delicious pumpkin soup recipe. I love all soups but pumpkin soup with coconut milk is by far my favourite. My kids love it too. I serve it in cups for them and they just drink it up.

If you have never tried pumpkin soup before, I highly recommend it. The coconut milk is what brings this soup together. It adds richness, beautiful aroma and a creamy, velvety texture.

Coconut Pumpkin Soup


  • 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 large butternut pumpkin, peeled, seeds removed and cut into chunks
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • Chilli flakes
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Heat coconut oil in a large pan, and sauté the onion for about 2 minutes or until soft.
  2. Add the pumpkin chunks, vegetable stock, cumin, nutmeg and cinnamon. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until the pumpkin is nice and tender.
  3. Puree everything using an immersion blender. Add coconut milk until you reach your desired consistency.
  4. Season with chilli flakes, salt and pepper.
  5. Ladle the soup into bowls, drizzle some coconut milk and sprinkle with pepitas seeds.
  6. Enjoy!
