1 Cup Sour Apple (cored & chopped)
3 Tablespoon Organic Raw Cane Sugar
3/4 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

7. Remove from the heat, add the pumpkin puree and mix thoroughly.
8. Pour the mixture into a high speed blender and set it to run in puree mode.
9. Gradually add the coconut milk and the soy milk and continue pureeing until extra smooth.
10. Pour the mixture back into the pot and set it on low heat.
11. Continuously stir while adding the salt and the pepper.
12. Dish out into 4 to 6 soup bowls, sprinkle the garnish ingredients and serve hot.
