Coconut Sweet Potato Soup
This 2 ingredient soup is a breeze to prepare and tastes wonderful. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of carotenes and a very good source of vitamins C and B6. They also contain unique root storage proteins which have been shown to exert significant antioxidant effects. And unlike many other starchy vegetables, sweet potatoes are classified as an “anti-diabetic” food. Studies have shown that sweet potatoes actually help stabilize blood sugar levels and improve the response to the hormone insulin.
