  • 2 cups, fairlife® Whole Ultra-Filtered Milk

  • 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and diced
  • 2.5 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 medium (or 3 small) Yukon Gold potatoes, cubed small
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable broth, divided
  • 5 cups fresh or frozen sweet corn kernels
  • Chopped fresh chives and/or jalapeno, for garnish


  • Step 1

    Warm the oil in a wide heavy stock pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the diced onion, celery, carrot and 1 teaspoon kosher salt (reserve remaining). Let cook, stirring often, until softened (about 5 minutes).

  • Step 2

    Then add all of the dried seasonings and flour. Cook and stir for about 2 minutes until all of the flour has fully incorporated.

  • Step 3

    Next, add the minced garlic, diced potatoes, and chicken or vegetable broth. Use a whisk or flat-edge spoon to scrape-up any brown bits from the bottom of the pot. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

  • Step 4

    Once boiling, immediately reduce heat to low, cover, and let simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender.

  • Step 5

    Lastly, add the corn kernels (directly from freezer if not using fresh), fairlife® ultra-filtered milk, and remaining 1.5 teaspoons kosher salt. Warm through over low heat (about 5 minutes).

  • Step 6

    Transfer 3 cups of the soup mixture (roughly even amounts broth and vegetables) to a blender and purée until smooth.

  • Step 7

    Return the puréed soup to the pot and stir to combine. Let the soup simmer over low heat for another 10 minutes until it thickens slightly.

  • Step 8

    Serve with a sprinkling of fresh chives and/or chopped jalapeno.
