NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons water
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 4 small sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds), peeled, halved lengthwise and cut across into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 apple, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 coconut candy bar (recommended: Mounds), finely chopped
  • 2 cups evaporated skim milk
  • 1/4 cup sherry
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, plus more for garnish
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 can fat free whipped cream, (recommended: fat free Reddi-whip) for garnish
Directions
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of water in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until softened, adding more water as needed, about 5 minutes. Add the potatoes and apple and stir in the broth. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer until potatoes are very soft, about 45 minutes.

  • Puree the potato/apple/broth mixture in a blender, then stir in the chopped candy and blend. Return the mixture back to the saucepan. Add the milk, sherry, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

  • Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Serve immediately.
