We don’t often think of soup so much in summer but this low-carb Cream of Coconut and Broccoli Soup is perfect. It’s packed with flavour, rich, creamy and yet still feels nice and light for summer. It’s also ideal if you’re tailoring your keto journey to include more vegan or vegetarian recipes.

No soup is complete without a sensational topper in my book so today i’ve added some coconut chips and seeds for a little crunch and a sprinkling of Dukkah. I hope you enjoy it.

Ingredients (makes 4 servings)

  • 2 tbsp virgin coconut oil (30 ml)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 2 shallots (45 g/ 1.6 oz)
  • 1 head broccoli, cut in florets (300 g/ 10.6 oz)
  • 4 cups vegetables stock or chicken stock (960 ml/ 32 fl oz)
  • 1/3 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
  • Optional: handful of watercress
  • 3/4 cup full-fat coconut milk (180 ml/ 6 fl oz)
  • 2 tbsp coconut cream (30 g/ 1.1 oz)
Optional toppings:
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (15 ml)
  • 1 tbsp full-fat yogurt or coconut yoghurt (15 g/ 0.5 oz)
  • 1 heaped tbsp pumpkin seeds (10 g/ 0.4 oz)
  • 1 heaped tbsp sunflower seeds (10 g/ o.4 oz)
  • 1/3 cup coconut chips (20 g/ 0.7 oz)
  • 1 tbsp dukkah spice mix
  • few watercress leaves


  1. Place the stock in a saucepan and simmer on a medium heat for 20 minutes until the stock reduces to almost half its volume. Concentrating the stock like this is my top tip to making the tastiest soup!
  2. Meanwhile, peel and finely dice the onion and garlic. Add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to a new saucepan and sweat the onion for 2 minutes on a medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 further minute. Turn off the heat. Low-Carb Cream of Broccoli & Coconut Soup
  3. Once the stock is reduced, chop the broccoli Add the raw broccoli and remove from the heat. Allow to stand for 10 minutes. Place back on the heat and add the coconut milk, onion and garlic mix, salt and pepper and heat through, takes 1 - 2 minutes. Low-Carb Cream of Broccoli & Coconut Soup
  4. Place the soup in a high speed food blender like a Vitamix. Add the coconut cream, remaining 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and optional watercress. Blitz until smooth. Place back in a pan and heat through.
  5. To serve, place in your favourite bowls and top with coconut chips, seeds, coconut yoghurt, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, a pinch of dukkah spice blend, and season to taste. Option to toast the coconut chips in the oven for 3 - 4 minutes until golden (170 °C/ 340 °F). My favourite way to enjoy coconut chips is toasted! Low-Carb Cream of Broccoli & Coconut Soup

This soup was absolutely delicious.  Thank you so much for this recipe!

Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed!

Can this soup be freezer stored? Thanks

Hi Abbey, yes, this soup freezes well. I store mine in ziploc bags or containers.

do you make videos . will you make videos for our company ?

Thank you very much Alex. We do make our own videos but I'm afraid that due to an absolute lack of time we can't make videos for other companies.

Made this for dinner tonight. It was delicious and very easy to make. I used the waterecress, which really added a nice flavor. I did not have time to reduce the stock, but it still came out very tasty.

Watercress is a great addition! I used it in a similar recipe: SuperFood Keto Soup

I love this soup and make it regularly.  We have started putting sliced radishes in the bottom of each soup bowl.  The soft crunch of the radishes and their slightly peppery taste really compliment the other flavors in the soup.

Thank you Krissie! I haven't tried using radishes, thanks for the tip!
