Keto Cream of Broccoli Soup Recipe


  • 1 cup chopped green onion
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 32 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
  • 4 cups half and half or heavy cream
  • 4 cups organic sugar-free chicken broth
  • 6 10 ounce boxes frozen, chopped broccoli, thawed
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • optional: toasted slivered almonds for garnish


  • Keep in mind that during this whole process you don't want the soup to boil. (This can cause it to separate and ruin the texture.)
  • Saute onions in butter in a large saucepan or Dutch oven.
  • Cube cream cheese.
  • Add cubed cream cheese and heavy cream or half and half to green onions.
  • Stir over low heat until the cream cheese is melted.
  • Stir in chicken broth.
  • Add half of the chopped broccoli.
  • Process soup with an immersion blender or in a countertop blender until smooth.
  • Stir in lemon juice and seasonings.
  • Add remaining chopped broccoli.
  • Cook over low heat until frozen broccoli is tender.
  • Garnish each bowl with toasted almonds and fresh herbs if desired.
