Creamy Zucchini & Kale Soup with Coconut Milk

Creamy Zucchini & Kale Soup with Coconut Milk

This nutritious and dairy-free Instant Pot soup is light, creamy, and surprisingly filling. The potatoes and coconut milk add a richness to the soup, bringing warmth and comfort on a cold fall or winter day. Plus, it is an easy way to eat more kale!


  • I have only made this recipe using an Instant Pot but it should work just as well on a stovetop.
  • I typically use white potatoes but I have also swapped with white sweet potatoes to make it Paleo and AIP compliant.
  • This recipe does not include onion due to my personal intolerance, but sauteing some onion in the Instant Pot before adding the rest of the ingredients would work nicely. 
  • I recommend using an immersion hand blender, a big help when making pureed soups.

A nutritious and dairy-free Instant Pot soup that is packed full of kale, with potatoes and coconut milk providing a creamy richness. Diet Type: SFED, AIP, Paleo, W30 Vegan


  • 2 cups kale, densely packed (I like to use baby kale)
  • 3 medium zucchini, chopped
  • 2 medium white potatoes, chopped (or white sweet potato)
  • 2 large celery stalks, chopped (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 3 cups chicken broth or vegetable stock
  • Step 1 Add potatoes, zucchini, celery, and baby kale to Instant Pot.
  • Step 2 Add the coconut milk, broth, and salt. Stir to combine ingredients.
  • Step 3 Seal the lid and make sure the venting knob is turned to “Sealing”. Press “Pressure Cook” and set the time to 15 minutes.
  • Step 4 Once the timer has finished, turn the vent knob to “Quick Release” or wait until the float valve drops on its own and remove the lid.
  • Step 5 Use an immersion blender in the Instant Pot until the soup is completely blended and smooth. Or, use a blender once the soup has reached a temperature safe enough to handle.
  • Step 6 Serve warm and salt to taste.
