Creamy Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Brrrr.

Winter has finally arrived.  It’s crazy to think that last week it was in the 80s and yesterday there were snow flurries.  Snow.  I can’t even.

But.  Yes, there is something positive about the snow.

But after a cold day, nothing warms the body or the soul quite like a bowl of soup.  And making soup from scratch warms my soul even more.

This soup is everything you want in a broccoli and cheese soup.  It’s ultra creamy, super cheesy and absolutely luscious.

Oh, and since it’s January and you might be trying to detox after an over-indulgent holiday season – it’s light!  There’s no cream (I used almond milk instead of milk and it worked like a charm) and it’s full of nutrients (thanks, broc!).  But it’s satisfying and totally filling because you use full-fat cheese.  (Please, please, please don’t use reduced fat cheese…they take out fat and add sugar and other not-so-nice ingredients.)

And to round out my plate, a tossed together halved tomatoes and avocado slices with a little salt and pepper as a side salad.

So while winter isn’t my favorite and sn** is a curse word in my world, I am totally okay with warming up with a bowl of comforting soup.
