Creamy Paleo Carrot Soup with Bacon

Now that it’s officially soup weather, I’m sharing my first soup of the season with this Paleo Carrot Aoup with Bacon. There’s something so comforting and cozy about a creamy soup and it’s extra delicious when combined with crispy, salty bacon.

Creamy Paleo Carrot Soup with Bacon Recipe

Not only is this recipe super flavorful, it’s actually really easy and quick and it takes a total of 30 minutes to make! The hardest part is the chopping of the bacon and vegetables and the rest is all done in the pot and the blender. And I recently got a brand new blender that I’m LOVING (it was looooong overdue) so the blending part was super fast as well!

Calphalon Precision Control™ Blender

My previous blender was totally beat up and about 6 years old, so I was super excited to check out Calphalon Precision Control™ Blender that’s newly released. I have several Calphalon products at home so I knew how high quality they are and I’m a big fan of this brand.

My favorite part of this blender is that it has self-adjusting, speed-controlled power blades sense the mixture’s thickness and adjust the speed accordingly to thoroughly blend. How cool is that? Not only that, the 1.5 liter jar is BPA-free and dishwasher safe, and it has a powerful 900-watt motor–so necessary for someone who uses kitchen gadgets all the time like me!

Plus, I really love the slick, matte black design, and it looks so good on my countertop.

Where to Purchase a Calphalon Precision Control™ Blender

If you also want to get your hands on my new favorite blender, you can only find them at Target. Calphalon actually has a whole new line of products out, which includes this blender, and you can find all of them here. I’m actually thinking of getting their waffle maker because I’ve been wanting one for so long.

Whole30 & AIP Friendly

Not only is this Creamy Paleo Carrot Soup full of healthy and good-for-you ingredients like vegetables, bone broth, and coconut milk, it’s actually Whole30 compliant and you can make AIP friendly by omitting the ground black pepper and paprika. It’ll still be deliciously flavorful, and you’ll definitely want to serve it as part of your Thanksgiving dinner!

    I haven’t been able to eat soup or broth for over 3 months now (food aversions/pregnant), but this is the first soup that has actually looked good and sounded good to me in quite some time. I have always loved carrot soup and I really like your special addition of the bacon.
