Creamy Avocado Poblano Soup

I have been working on this recipe for a while and I think I have it finally perfected! I was determined to create a rich and creamy avocado soup using bone broth so it was not only full of healthy fats but gut healing as well. I tried a few variations and I think by adding the cumin and roasted poblanos it took the flavor to a whole new level. The sweet potato is my hidden ingredient for giving all of my blended soups a thick, creamy texture, combined with the avocados makes this an incredibly dreamy dish. 

I recently blogged about how I am really into making these base soups for my meal planning because they are incredibly easy to make (I break it down into just 5 simple steps!) but are also a great way to consume bone broth throughout the week. I love making a giant pot of these kinds of soup and just having them on hand because I know at the very least when my schedule is super busy that I will always have a nourishing soup to eat. Hope you all enjoy!
