Step 3:

Pour in the coconut milk, simmer for an additional 5 minutes. Afterwards, pour the soup into a blender and add the lemon juice and coconut oil.  Place the top on the blender and blend the mixture on high for 45 seconds until smooth and creamy.   NOTE:  Because hot liquids expand when blended, we recommend placing a folded up dishtowel on the lid of the blender and holding down the lid to avoid a big mess and possible injury.  Fold in the salt and chives.
