Easy and Creamy Potato Soup

Nothing is better than a bowl of hot soup on a cold winter’s day and healthy soup is even better! We’ve been having lots of cold winter days up here in Michigan and this soup warms me up perfectly! Growing up my mom often served a version of this soup to us and it is classic comfort food to me!

Although I love her original recipe, I wanted to make a healthy potato soup version that would still deliciously creamy and cheesy, just a bit healthier!! I definitely didn’t want to sacrifice the amazing flavor of this soup.

You could also add cooked ham or bacon to this soup for a little extra protein if you’d like. I’ve shared an updated version potato soup in the slow cooker with ham that’s also delicious!

It pairs magically with homemade whole wheat bread or rolls for dipping. And you can never go wrong with the soup and salad combination. Yum!!

    1. Thanks Alisha! Yes. But I would cook it low and slow and wait to add the cheese and yogurt until the end on low. (Otherwise it may curdle a bit due to the dairy in it.)

  1. I’m trying this tonight! I got the ingredients yesterday but could only find a large can of fat free evaporated milk. What size can did you use?

    1. Yay! I hope you really enjoy it; the can is 14 ounces. A little more or less would be fine, if you want the soup thicker you can always add more or less of the potato flakes. 🙂
