CREAMY COCONUT-ASPARAGUS SOUP
With coconut milk, asparagus, herbs, and spices, this creamy asparagus soup has the nutrition your family needs and the flavors they love.
Unlike cow’s milk, coconut milk is lactose free—a great milk substitute for those with lactose intolerance. Coconuts are also highly nutritious and rich in fiber and vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5, and B6. They also have important minerals including iron, sodium, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus.
And asparagus is packed with good-for-you vitamins and minerals. Loaded with antioxidants, fiber, and protein, asparagus packs a flavor punch your family will love.
