A warm bowl of carrot ginger soup on a cool, fall day is my favorite way to embrace the season. Both nourishing and tasty, this is the ultimate comfort soup recipe.

As much as I love blending fresh fruits and veggies into a refreshing glass of goodness… a warm bowl of soup soothes the soul like nothing else! So, I wanna share this carrot soup recipe I looooooooove. And yep—it’s from my amazing, plant based, Fresh Start 21 day cleanse.

Plant-based carrot soup recipe

There are 5 cleanse-worthy ingredients in this soup: ginger, carrots, garlic, lemon, and coconut oil. These plant-powered ingredients help your body detox out anything that’s slowing you down from living your best life ever!

That’s right, this carrot ginger soup is 100% dairy free, yet super creamy. It’s loaded with fresh veggies and healthy fats to provide the perfect balance of nutrition. How does this carrot soup stand up to traditional, dairy-filled versions, you ask? With this #rawkstar ingredient list:

  • yellow onion– According to a study by the US Library of health, onions are full of antioxidants and great cancer fighters.
  • fresh ginger– this root vegetable contains powerful anti-inflammatory properties that help with osteoarthritis, according to a study by the National Library of Medicine.
  • fresh garlic– another great vegetable with antioxidants that can fight cancer, as well as prevent DNA damage from hypertension.
  • carrots– full of beta carotene, which our bodies turn into vitamin A, carrots really are good for our eyes!
  • full fat coconut milk– I always use coconut milk with full fat, as this fat helps break down the carbs from other veggies in this carrot soup, as well as contains MCTs that help with weight control.

Pro tip: I like using orange carrots to produce the vibrant color in this soup, yet any carrot variety will work.

Festive fall dinner with carrot soup

Fall is often a time where family gatherings are more prevalent. I love sharing this carrot ginger soup with family and friends, as it’s mild, delicious flavor is always a crowd pleaser. Yet, if you’re looking for a whole fall feast, look no further:

Kale autumn salad

While I’ve created this recipe for a quick on-the-go lunch, it is the perfect start to a fall meal. The pomegranate brings a brightness to the kale, and while the sliced almonds provide the perfect amount of crunch.

Roasted Brussels sprouts

Hands down my fav fall recipe to bring to a party. Perfectly roasted Brussels sprouts are complimented by toasted walnuts and a touch of maple syrup.

Sweet potato nachos

If you’re looking to make this carrot ginger soup recipe your main course, adding in some sweet potato nachos creates the perfect crunchy pairing. This is a recipe from my book, Simple Green Meals, and is such a fun party feature.

No guilt rice krispie treats

I say this is a great kid friendly dessert, yet I love to indulge in these too! It’s my fun, healthier take on a traditional sweet treat.

Almond butter and jam muffins

If a breaded dessert is more your style, these stuffed muffins are for you. I love the fresh sweetness of the strawberry filling when I take a bite out of these.

    If I could keep clicking the stars to rate, I’d give it 20+ stars! This is absolutely delicious!! And so flexible using the number of carrots, broth and coconut milk that I had available. And more than enough leftovers for lunch tomorrow and freeze.

  2. Carolee Crider says:

    Delicious! The ultimate comfort food.

  3. Kat B. says:

    This looks so yummy! Can’t wait to try it!

  4. Stacey says:

    This was way better than I expected! I am pretty picky about my soups so this one was a pleasant surprise and very easy to make.

  5. Kim says:

    Such an easy recipe to make on a cool fall day! One of our favorites.

  6. Dani says:

    I’ve made this soup at least 10 times since last year— it’s so easy, tastes great and also helps me keep my weight loss goals possible. I quadruple the recipe and freeze it. Then when I want it, I just dump a freezer bag in the crock pot and dinner ins ready in a few hours.

  7. Amanda F says:

    Love this soup! It’s so delicious and so easy to make. Whenever I see we have extra carrots on hand, you know what I’m making!

  8. Michelle says:

    This was just okay for me. The spice wasn’t my favorite and I normally like carrot/squash soups. The ginger was a little too strong. I may try again, but next time half the ginger and subbing all the cumin for a more cinnamon-y spice blend of Garam Masala.

  9. Mireille says:

    A very delicious soup! Nice carrot and ginger flavour. Glad I tried it and I will make it again.

  10. Denise says:

    This soup is delicious. It reminds me of carrot ginger dressing.

  11. Erin says:

    Thanks for this dairy free take on a great soup! Soups are hard since so many of them have dairy, yet I don’t miss it in this delicious comforting soup.

  12. mich says:

    Since there are no silly questions… 🙂
    Carrots come in so many different sizes, do you know how many grams your 6 carrots end up being? Want to make sure I do it right as it looks absolutely delicious!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      I would suggest using medium size carrots. These do not have to be exact measurements since it’s almost impossible to get all carrots the exact same size and shape. The medium carrot is between 5.5” and 7.25” in length and weighs between 50 and 72 grams each. When I make this recipe I grab the carrots that look the best to me and go from there. 🙂

      Cannot wait for you to try it!

  13. Jane says:

    I can’t find an answer to Rebecca’s question about the six chunks of carrots. She thinks if it’s six chunks of carrots that would be equal to two carrots but depending bon the size of the chunks it could be less or more than two. Seems to me that with a soup called “,carrot …” it’s important to know the amount of the most important ingredient!

    It would be great if you could clarify!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Jane,

      This recipes you will need 6 carrots and then you will wash them and cut into halves.

      Enjoy!! 🙂

  14. So … maybe this is a silly question. But how much is “6 pieces carrots”? Is it six carrots cut into pieces? Or just six chunks of carrot, total (which seems like it would be about two carrots)?

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Rebecca,

      There are no silly questions here!!! The recipe calls for 6 carrots washed and chopped into halves.

      Hope that helps! 🙂

  15. Julie says:

    Probably a crazy question. But do you use canned coconut milk or the kind in a tetra pac? Both are unsweetened, the tetra pac has more additives though. I guess this question would apply to coconut milk in smoothies as well. Thanks so much.

    I made this for dinner for my SIL (and everyone else) who is on special dietary restrictions pre and post surgery. I only had to opt out of using any oil and added some organic chicken boullion. It was amazing!!
