I use the canned coconut milk that is light, not full fat, but choose whatever kind you like. I make sure it's pure coconut milk with no other additives. If you want a thinner soup, add in some vegetable broth and/or more coconut milk. You could also toast the pumpkin seeds or add other toppings like toasted walnuts.
