Creamy Instant Pot Sweet Potato Soup (Easy Recipe)

Every once in a while I switch up my eating habits but I always try to eat more whole foods. The paleo diet is always a safe choice for me because it’s so easy to follow and I have so many paleo recipes that have become my favorites over the years. This instant pot sweet potato soup is one of them. While sweet potatoes are admittedly a bit on the high end when it comes to carbs, their other benefits more than make up for that. They’re a great source of essential B-vitamins and dietary fiber, which helps to make this soup recipe even more satisfying.
