I accidentally grabbed smoked paprika and it was a happy mistake. The slight smokiness offsets the sweetness of the apples perfectly.

Recipe Notes:

  • The soup can also be blended in a food processor or blender, just make sure to vent the top so it doesn’t explode.
  • I used CashewMilk, but CoconutMilk {in a box} would work as well. Yes, even regular milk would work if you prefer.
  • For those of you that like things spicy, sprinkle some cayenne or chipotle pepper on top.
  • I love Gala apples, but any sweet-tart apple will work…Pinata, Pink Lady, etc.

  1. Love the ability to change number of servings in recipe! A big help for smaller Instant Pot as well as single living. Will make this next few days.

  2. There is no “manual button” on my instant pot? What do you mean let the pressure release naturally – just keep the valve in the sealing position?

    1. Use the “Pressure Cook” button, Hannah. To release the pressure naturally do nothing, do not touch the sealing valve just let it do it’s thing. You will hear a click when the valve drops and you will be able to open the lid.

    2. I made this on day one of my whole 30 for dinner. I’m vegetarian, so it’s tough to find recipes that check all the boxes. This was so delicious and easy to make! I couldn’t find cashew milk, so I just used almond milk.

      Thanks so much for sharing, I will definitely be making this again!
