2. Bolthouse Farms Original Plant Protein Milk is an all-star in this recipe. It adds a rich creaminess to the soup with a touch of sweetness. It’s a fully plant based milk, and it can go head to head with any milk out there thanks to a generous 10 grams of protein (which comes from peas!) per serving.

What are the benefits of Bolthouse Farms Plant Protein Milk?

  • It’s delicious! It has just the right consistency and can be used virtually anywhere.
  • The best milk comes from plants. I feel that plant based milk is not only better for our bodies, but better for the environment as well!
  • Bolthouse Farms Plant Protein Milk is a non-dairy plant-based milk that contains 10 grams of pea protein per serving. To put this in perspective, almond milk only has 1 gram of protein per serving.
  • Plant Protein Milk is non-GMO, soy free and has 50% more calcium than dairy milk.

Extra tips to make the best Loaded Sweet Potato Soup

  • Rather not use butter? Substitute with 2 tbsp. olive or avocado oil instead.
  • Soup can be prepared ahead of time up to the day before by storing covered in the refrigerator. Reserve toppings until ready to serve.
  • Turkey bacon can be substituted for bacon based on your personal preference.
  • If you find your celery overly “stringy” try peeling the outer layer with a vegetable peeler prior to finely dicing.
  • If you don’t have an immersion blender or high speed blender, the soup can also be pureed using a food processor!
