Homemade Pumpkin Soup Recipe

It is finally pumpkin season which means – pumpkin everything! I’m not into the pumpkin spiced lattes as I am into recipes using real pumpkin like this homemade pumpkin soup recipe. This isn’t made with canned pumpkin, but a real pumpkin straight from the source.

You can definitely substitute for canned pumpkin if this recipe is too much work for you. I might try it with the canned pumpkin myself.

To make homemade pumpkin soup you will need:

  1. 1 medium sized whole pumpkin (that will fit in your oven)
  2. Organic coconut oil – to coat pumpkin
  3. 4 tablespoons organic olive oil
  4. 1 cup organic coconut milk
  5. 4 cups organic chicken broth
  6. 1 tablespoon organic blue agave
  7. 2 small shallots (chopped)
  8. 1 teaspoon organic cayenne pepper
  9. 2 drops Black Pepper Vitality oil
  10. 2 drops Thyme Vitality oil
  11. 2 drops Clove Vitality oil


  1. Preheat oven to 400º F then coat pumpkin in coconut oil on a baking sheet.
  2. On the lowest rack, roast the pumpkin for 1 hour.
  3. Remove and let it cool then cut in half horizontally.
  4. Remove the seeds. These can be used later as a garnish if desired.
  5. In a food processor or mixer, puree the pumpkin meat with 1 cup of chicken broth.
  6. Next, combine the shallots and olive oil in a large pot and sauté over medium heat.
  7. When the shallots become golden brown, add the pumpkin puree, the rest of the chicken broth, coconut milk, cayenne and blue agave.
  8. Simmer for 15-20 minutes.
  9. Before serving, add your Vitality oils and stir.
  10. Pumpkin Seeds: Roast and use as a garnish.
