On those colder days when you just want to wrap up in a blanket I know i’m going to be craving this. I love soups, they’re filling, tasty and packed with healthy ingredients. Following on from my Pumpkin Spice Syrup Recipe, I was inspired to create a soup incorporating similar ingredients and here it is! This soup is ‘soup-er’ creamy and delicious. (I’m sorry that was cheesy!)
