Keto Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Keto Broccoli Cheddar Soup

There is nothing like a hot bowl of soup on a cold day and this Keto Broccoli Cheddar Soup is so good, you'd think it wasn't keto! Cheesy-goodness, chock full of broccoli, and perfectly keto to fuel your fat loss!
I like to make this batch of soup for multiple servings so I can freeze some in ziploc bags for easy reheat dinners when I don't feel like cooking.
