You won’t believe how tasty and easy this super healthy sweet potato or yam soup is to make.

I enjoy it with either sweet potato or yam, and definitely prefer it with fresh ginger over ground… but as Blender Babes like to say “Use what you got”! 😉

You will not be disappointed with the satisfying rich and creamy texture, minus the calories of a typical cream soup.

In a pinch you can replace coriander with cumin, and for those who like a little crunch in their soup, be sure to add the optional almonds.

For a vegan/vegetarian version just use veggie broth.


The perfect appetizer soup or a complete meal, cut the recipe in half for a big single serve bowl.

By using a high powered blender this recipe only takes about 8 to 10 minutes start to finish, which includes cooking the sweet potato or yam in the microwave vs baking.

Sweet potatoes are a rich in iron as well as mag­nesium, which is the relaxation and anti-stress mineral.

  1. Yikes, it looks like a great recipe except for the Saran Wrap. I avoid it whenever possible because it is loaded with chemicals (BPA as well) which would leach into the potato – especially when heated. I’ll try the old poke the skin with a fork method or boil them instead. Great website:)

          Hey Stacie. Yes! Thank you for pointing that out! We updated to a new recipe plugin and some things weren’t seamless. 😉 All fixed now. Happy Blending! ~Tarashaun

    1. There is no BPA in Saran wrap. Other brands of plastic cling wrap may, but that brand specifically does not. “SC Johnson does not use BPA in its plastic products, Ziploc® brand bags and containers, and Saran ™ brand wraps. “
