1/4 can organic coconut milk
5 fresh organic beets, peeled.
1 tablespoon organic peeled shaved ginger
1 tablespoon of sea salt.
1 gallon of filtered water.

Chop the beets into 1/2" cubes and throw into a pot on medium high on the stove.
Let them get a little carmelized. Then throw in the ginger and stir it around for 30
Pour in all the water.
Add the salt.
Boil it, then reduce to simmer for 1 hour.
Reduce to the lowest keep warm setting on your stove.
Churn it up really well with an immersion blender, or very carefully in batches in a normal blender until it very smooth.
Stir in the coconut milk at the very end, and taste it and adjust the salt and perhaps add more water. Serve. It makes lots of servings.

This dish is cheap. It is full of vitamins. Beets are a superfood.
They prevent cancer and make your skin glow. Ginger settles the stomach (remember ginger ale as a kid when you were sick?) Coconut milk is also a whole food, not an extract, and it also is great for your skin, which is why it is in so many skin care products.
This soup will make you younger. Really. Try it.

It also works with sweet potatoes, yams, or carrots. Any sweet tuber vegetable.
