Creamy Cauliflower Squash Bacon Soup

This soup is delicious and nutritious and it is really filling as well. My family has been on this Paleo kick so this one is paleo friendly.
I love it because I was full on one bowl and on a chilly day it was just what we needed!

Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the cauliflower is tender, about 15-20 minutes.
If you have an immersion blender, blend until the soup is smooth (this soup will start out thick so add more milk or broth if you want to thin it out).

Otherwise, pour soup into a blender/food processor and purée until smooth.

Stir in your coconut milk and cook for another 10 minutes. Blend your soup some more if needed.

Pour soup into bowls and top with your bacon and a little arugula if you would like. Enjoy!
