Happy Spring, friends! Ok, I know I’m jumping the gun just a little because it’s still early March, but our snow is already gone and we’re enjoying riding our bikes again outside and I couldn’t be happier about it!! I just love the arrival of Spring every single year and it puts me in such a good mood, making me want to stock our fridge with fresh fruits and veggies again after winter and start putting salads back on the table.
Truthfully, we enjoy soups a lot in the springtime too and this Slow Cooker Carrot Ginger Soup is one of our absolute favourite soups to enjoy this time of year. The flavours are SO bright and comforting and carrots are great any time of year. Some people might think that root vegetable soups are only for fall and winter, but au contraire! This Slow Cooker Carrot Ginger Soup is PERFECT for spring!

The thing that takes this soup to the next level is how you blend the coconut milk into the soup after cooking. If you add the coconut milk while blending with your immersion blender the texture it creates is absolutely silky smooth and carrot soup perfection. I just know you’re going to love it!!

Followed your reciepe to the exact ..I hate to say..but awful . Could not taste the carrots. Do not know what it was. But not carrot. Bought fresh carrots. Bought the coconut milk. Everything. Was awful. I have been cooking for about 40 years. Never made carrot soup so decided to do it! This was..to me something soup…but not carrot as you can not taste the carrot ..sorry as was expecting carrot soup. Had to dump it..omg..all that time and effort
I’m sorry it didn’t work out for you – what kind of carrots did you use? If they were good quality carrots they should have had an overwhelming flavour.
This was excellent! Full disclosure, I am not a cook, so I was not optimistic. I was so pleasantly surprised. Not only was this recipe so easy to follow, but it was delicious! The taste, texture, and consistency were perfect. I used 15 large, organic carrots and heavy cream in lieu of the coconut milk. After having read the reviews, I added an apple. I was glad I did. I plan on making this again. Great recipe! Thank you!
You’re welcome Sarah! Thank you for your feedback!😊
Hi. Can I freeze the carrot soup?
Yes! You can keep it in a freezer safe container for up to 3 months.
I made it & love it! And I’m not a good cook by any means. Thank you!
So yummy! Just made this and it’s delicious! Smooth, creamy and exactly what I was hoping it would be!
So glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for the positive feedback!
Yummy! This made a huge pot of silky beautiful soup. It is strangely buttery. Loved it. Thanks for the recipe.
You’re welcome! So glad you love it as much as we do! Thanks for the positive feedback! 🙂
Made this and loved it! The only changes I made were to add a small apple to the crockpot and used 2 red onions because I realized at the last minute I didn’t have any white onions left. The onions did not alter the beautiful colour of the soup – it was still a gorgeous orange colour once blended. I added the apple only because while I was chopping the carrots I tasted a few slices and realized that some were a bit bitter tasting. I think the apple certainly worked to counter that bitterness a bit. The result, after blending in the vitamix, was a smooth and creamy carrot soup that has a bit of spice from the ginger balanced with a bit of sweetness from the carrots. I also was out of homemade stock so I just used water with a bit of extra sea salt. Super easy to prepare and then to blend once it cooled. Thanks so much for the great recipe!!
So glad you liked it! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! 🙂
Absolutely delicious!! Will make often!
So glad you liked it!! 🙂
Absolutely fab soup thank you x x
Thanks Jennifer! So glad you loved it!!
Why 20 medium carrots. Cannot you say how many lbs? I would like to make this soup. thanks.
Hi! I don’t live in America, so I don’t use pounds often. 🙂
Did your recipe it was easy, but the “rough cut carrots” was a bit vague, it took over 12 hours and mashing them separately to be able to blend it. Let’s hope it’s yummy lol
Where does the 4 mg of cholesterol come from? The stock, chicken or veggie shouldn’t have cholesterol and the coconut milk is zero cholesterol. If you use half and half would it not be higher then 4 mg? I am excited to try this as in our family we have a celiac and another family member on a strict cholesterol intake, counting every mg of cholesterol during the day. Thank you
The cholesterol comes from the chicken stock, however you can eliminate this by using a stock that’s cholesterol free or by using simply water instead.
Hi from Australia!
I just found your creamy carrot & ginger soup recipe. I love icey cold carrot juice and I now need to use up a lot of carrot pulp after juicing a big bag of carrots. Do you think I could use this carrot pulp in your recipe without losing flavour?
Do you have any other recipes that I could add carrot pulp to, for example muffins? I’d be much obliged 🌹
Yes! You can definitely add carrot pulp to this recipe, although I wouldn’t use exclusively carrot pulp…the juice from the carrots holds a ton of flavour and liquid that’s essential to this recipe.
I made this today, cool and rainy weather and all. The only things I did differently was added some celery and I dumped in the whole can of coconut milk. We had lots of lovely fresh carrots and the soup turned out delicious and plentiful.
Happy to hear you like this delicious soup!!😊
What size crock pot did you use for 8 servings? I want to make 16 servings but I’m not sure if my six quart pot will be big enough. That’s really my biggest complaint with recipes these days is they don’t tell you what size pots they’re using a lot of the times.
Hey Christine, This recipe (with 8 servings) comfortably fits any 4 quart slow cooker. I hope that helps!☺️
Very happy with this soup. It’s nice to make a big batch in the slow cooker with plenty left for another meal or two. Will definitely make this again.
I’m so happy you enjoyed it! Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback!
I made this soup and I don’t even like to cook but this was the best ginger carrot soup I had ever tasted! I loved it. The recipe was simple. I don’t have an immersion blender but after making this recipe, I purchased one for when I make it again!
I’m so happy you enjoyed it! That’s my thing: great food that doesn’t take a lot of effort! Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback!
i love, butter nut squash soup, carrot soup and carrot anything, and pumpkin soup. i love acorn squash. so, ive not bought any fresh carrots lately. but i have had roasted carrots a couple of weeks ago. im just going to use my canned carrots, i have coconut milk and powdered cream, and crystalized ginger and turkey broth. i have minced garlic in a jar, and dried parsley. sour cream. ill probably make some home made bread. i want to see how good it will be with canned carrots. etc. im sure if its fantastic with fresh ingredients. that theres no way i can fail at making it with canned carrots. its got to be tasty at the very least.
Let us know how it turns out!
Thank you for the recipe
