Easter is right around the corner!!
He’s coming – the master chocolate monster – except he’s not a monster.
The Easter Bunny.
Cute – fluffy – and filled with chocolate … what’s not to love?
And so you can save the sweet treats and let’s face it the calories for when the Easter bunny leaves behind his sweet surprised, let’s start the week on a healthy note.
Slightly Sweet – A little Spicy and Oh so incredibly delicious.
Also, shall we discuss the amazing pop of colour?
I love it when delicious food looks as great as it taste … and that extra punch of added health benefits – - winning!!

In a large soup pot, bring the water to a boil.

Add fresh thyme and rosemary. Allow to boil for an additional 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and blend 2 cups of soup to create a smooth – velvety texture. After every 2 cups, return to soup pot. Continue until all of the soup is as smooth as a bunny ;)
Once all of the soup has been blended, return to heat. Add yogurt, apple cider vinegar sriracha sauce, salt, pepper, paprika and ginger powder.
Simmer for 10 minuets to allow the flavours to get to know each other.
Then, dig in!!
