we enjoyed this but found the amount of liquid was a little too much. i would make it again as it was a good soup, just reduce the water to five cups. i didn't add the sugar as the carrots were really sweet anyway. i also cut down the amount of creamer and found it enough. thanks Kelbel.
WOW, you would never know that this is low fat!! it's thick and creamy and wonderful. I lightened it a bit more by using fat free evaporated milk (it's my best kitchen friend!) in place of the creamer and a bit of Molly McButter in place of the butter. Also I used a smaller amount of water, really just enough to cover the veggies. I will use a bit less white pepper next time I make this as I felt it came through a bit strong and over powered the cinnamon and nutmeg. Truly, nobody would believe that it's only 167 calories. I love it.
