Healthy Sweet Potato, Corn and Crab Bisque Recipe

It’s that time of the year when having a yummy bowl of soup really hits the spot and warms you up. One of my favorite types of soups is bisque, but they are often filled with cream and tons of calories. Here is a lightened up bisque recipe that uses Almond Milk unsweetened and coconut oil to give it the rich and creamy taste bisques are known for.
