Keto Pumpkin Soup

Rating: 4.67 stars
This creamy fall favorite is perfect for those following a keto or low-carb diet, and the whole family will love it! I use bone broth if I have it on hand, however chicken stock works just as well. Use a keto-friendly brown sugar substitute that measures 1:1 like sugar, such as Lakanto® Golden or Swerve® Brown Sugar Substitute.

Instant Pot® Butternut Squash and Pumpkin Spice Soup

Rating: 5 stars
This always reminds me of fall. It's a creamy, but dairy-free, squash and pumpkin soup with holiday spices. It also happens to be paleo, and without the honey it's Whole30® friendly too! I make this in my Instant Pot® pressure cooker where I just leave it under pressure for 15 minutes, puree, and it's ready. If you don't have a pressure cooker, there are also directions for using a medium or large pot below. Garnish with roasted, salted pumpkin seeds.

Coconut Curry Pumpkin Soup
