Heart Healthy Carrot Soup Recipe
Make soup: Lightly coat a large saucepan with nonstick cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Add shallots and carrots and sauté for 5 minutes. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes or until softened. Add carrot juice, water, orange juice and thyme. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.
In a blender, purée soup mixture until smooth. Add orange zest and black pepper and stir to combine.
Make yogurt topping: In a small bowl, combine yogurt, coconut powder, chopped mint and honey and whisk until combined.
Garnish each serving with a dollop of yogurt topping, orange slices and mint leaves.
