Coconut Carrot Soup

Fall is here and this soup is the perfect way to ring in the new season. Plus its orange and we all know orange is the new black. Whipped up in 20 minutes or so, the mix between coconut and carrot will make you want to pull on your fall sweater and cozy up on the couch as you watch the leaves fall and change colors.

2 cups chicken stock

1 teaspoon ginger, freshly grated

2 tablespoons lime juice

1 tablespoon heavy cream, for garnish
