During the last year my husband and I were lucky enough to eat at the Post Ranch Inn in Northern California. We had an incredible meal which included a stunning salad as well as carrot ginger soup, and more. I spoke to our server to get an idea of what was in that amazing carrot soup so that I could turn it into one of my healthy dinner recipes –that’s how this Paleo Carrot Soup recipe was born.
If you have always wondered how to make carrot soup at home the below recipe for Paleo Carrot Soup will be a fantastic guide. The recipe is quite malleable; feel free to omit the cayenne, stevia, and lime garnish if you want to keep it very simple. You could also make this in the summer and try turning it into a recipe for chilled carrot ginger soup.
Paleo Carrot Soup
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 small onion, peeled and chopped
- 5 large carrots, chopped (around 1 pound)
- 1 green apple, chopped
- ½ ounce fresh ginger chopped
- ⅓ cup orange juice
- 1 can full fat coconut milk
- 2 cups Chicken Stock or water
- ⅛ teaspoon cayenne, optional
- 6 drops stevia, optional
- Garnish with fresh lime
- Heat coconut oil in a large saucepan
- Sauté onion, carrot, and apple in coconut oil until tender
- Add ginger to saucepan
- Add orange juice, coconut milk and stock to saucepan
- Very carefully, in very small batches, puree mixture in vitamix
- Return mixture to pan to reheat, stirring in cayenne pepper, and stevia if desired
- Garnish with fresh lime
To keep this recipe quick and easy, do not peel your carrots, apple or ginger –they’re all going to be pureed into soup in the end anyway, and I find it wasteful to discard the skins which are full of rich enzymes and healthy micro-nutrients. I know this carrot soup recipe has more ingredients than most of my recipes, however, I think you’ll find that the amazing flavor profile is well worth the extra bit of effort –and truly, it’s not that challenging to make a delicious, real food dish for you and your family. Here’s to clean eating!
To make this Paleo Carrot Soup recipe part of a full Paleo dinner menu serve it with the following:
I don’t use stevia, only honey or molasses for sweeteners….Has anyone substituted or it is better to just leave it out?
This was delicious. Thank you!

I Love everything related to carrot And Of course i will try Carrot soup Just because it’s posted by you elena :)
I just made this recipe and OMG it is fantastic!
I didn’t realize until I got home that I was out of apples so I used a red bell pepper instead. I also used leeks instead of onions. I don’t have a vitamix blender but I used my Ninja blender and it worked perfectly!
I made an oversized batch thinking I would freeze the extra soup but I don’t think it will make it that far before I eat it!
I will definitely be taking this to work for lunch tomorrow! The next time I make it I will try vegetable stock instead of chicken stock so that I can share it with my office mate (she’s vegetarian).
Thank you for a great treat and a nice change from my usual boring soups, especially this winter :)
Oh, I also omitted the Stevia and lime but I did use the cayenne pepper. It was just the right amount of cayenne, not too spicy but just enough make you notice.

This soup is deliciousness on your tongue!! Thank you for sharing this recipe!!
The soup sounds great. I just tried a recipe for waffles from the Clean Gut plan which seemed it could have come from you, as they were simple, gluten free, and used almond flour and coconut flour. Unfortunately they weren’t great, which most of your recipes are. A bit dry and crumbly. We added an egg and that decreased some of the crumble. I haven’t seen a waffle recipe on your site. Was hoping you might be inspired to play around and share one. The waffles might be a fun side with the soup.
Many thanks for all you contribute to support shifting our patterns around food.
