Roasted Sweet Potato and Coconut Cream Soup {Kenmore Pro Blender Review}

This roasted sweet potato and coconut cream soup is gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, and Whole30 friendly. Here's how to make it in a blender!

Back in the day, I was the queen of takeout. Chinese, sushi, Thai, pizza… anything so long as I didn’t have to cook it! Once the kids came along though, I felt obligated to spend more time in the kitchen making healthy meals for them. In the process, I’ve discovered I actually like preparing home cooked meals for my family. I know, it was a shock to me too!

Being a good home cook is one third quality ingredients, one third delicious recipes, and one third the right tools. Since discovering my love for cooking, I’ve been coveting all those high-end appliances, but without the high-end prices.

That’s why I was excited to see a brand new blender from Kenmore Pro by Sears Canada that meets both those requirements. In keeping with Sears Canada’s philosophy, it’s a professional quality blender with all the premium features of the competition, but at the affordable Sears Canada price point we know and love.

Kenmore Pro Heavy Duty Professional blender

The new Kenmore Pro Heavy Duty Professional Blender houses a powerful 1450 watt/1.95 horsepower motor and 6 stainless steel blades to do any job you can throw at it. Dips, soups, sauces, marinades, curry pastes, desserts, cocktails/mocktails, smoothies, juices, nut milks, nut butters, and even baby food!

The switches feel sturdy, and I really like the variable speed dial they’ve used instead of the old-style push buttons. I have more control over the blender speed this way.

But one of the coolest features of this blender is its ability to make hot soup right in the jug. This blender is so powerful that it can actually puree and heat the ingredients to steaming simply through the super speed of its blades. You have to admit that’s kinda awesome!

Telling is not the same thing as showing though, so I made some roasted sweet potato and coconut cream soup for lunch. It’s gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo and Whole30 friendly, but most of all, it’s delicious and surprisingly easy to make.

I started by tossing some sweet potatoes and half an onion in olive oil and roasting them until they were soft. Normally, at this point I’d transfer them into a pot, add the vegetable stock and coconut milk, bring the liquid to a simmer, then transfer the contents to my old blender for pureeing.

But this time I skipped the stove top entirely. Instead, I added all the ingredients directly into my Kenmore Pro blender.

I pureed everything into creamy sweetness, then turned the dial up to high and blended for about five minutes until steaming. This blender really does get soups piping hot and incredibly smooth. My old blender’s got nothing on this!

The two liter capacity BPA-free jug lets me make enough soup for my entire family of four in one container and saves on dirty dishes. That’s another win for this busy mom!

And here it is! Hot, homemade, velvety smooth soup in almost no time.
