Notes

I created this recipe because of my grandmother. She is 92 years old and she has a hard time eating sold foods. My grandma also has server dementia so she also doesn't like food that looks dark, she prefers a white, pink, and even yellow looking foods. My mother bought two fresh pumpkins from the store and asked me to make my grandma soup.

Did you know that Pumpkin is an excellent source of vitamin A , potassium and the antioxidant beta-carotene!

And.....the potassium within pumpkins has a positive effect on your blood pressure!!

Also, coconut milk is lactose free! So if you are lactose sensitive you can enjoy this creamy soup!
