As warm weather and the summer sun become a distant memory, our healthy diets should stay intact. What better way to celebrate the season of soups with a delicious, diet-approved Creamy Sweet Potato Soup? A few simple ingredients are combined to create this creamy, flavorful meal.

Peel six medium-sized sweet potatoes and cut into cubes. In a large soup pot, saute onion, garlic and sage until onion has become translucent. Add in the potatoes, broth and almond milk and season with salt and pepper. Once the mixture has reached a boil, lower to medium heat to continue cooking through. Cook for another 20 minutes, until the sweet potatoes are softened; add in beans and turn the stove off. Transfer the soup mixture to a blender and blend until smooth. Once blended through, pour the soup back into the pot to reheat. Divide the soup into six bowls and top with a tablespoon of Greek yogurt and a teaspoon of pepitas.
