Sweet Coconut-Butternut Squash Crockpot Soup

Peel and chop squash, sweet potato, and onion. Place squash, sweet potato, onion, 1 cup of chicken broth or stock and coconut oil in a slow cooker, and cook on high for about 4 hours. Using an immersion blender, or scooping mixture into a regular blender, puree until smooth. Return to crockpot and add remaining chicken broth or stock, coconut milk, coconut cream, cumin, and coconut flakes. Cook for about 30 more minutes, or until soup is heated through. Sprinkle with extra coconut flakes for garnish.
