Sweet potato soups are typically thought of as savory, but this inventive recipe calls for a few sweet ingredient additions—like 100% cocoa powder.

The Creamy Cocoa with Sweet Potatoes Soup is described as a "much cleaner version of rice pudding," as it features black rice alongside a few satisfyingly sweet ingredients like creamy coconut milk. To further enhance the complexity of the taste and texture of the dish are even more unusual ingredients like ground red and black pepper, to add a hint of spice.

This Creamy Cocoa with Sweet Potatoes Soup is just one of the many healthy recipes that can be found in chef Nicole Centeno's new Soup Cleanse Cookbook, which puts an emphasis on addressing wellness with nutrient-dense, satisfying soups that are an alternative to fad diets and juice cleanses.
