In a pot, heat butter on medium heat. Add onion, carrot and celery and sauté for 1 minute. Add sweet potatoes, pears and thyme and sauté for about 2 minutes. Add paprika and veggie broth. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes or until sweet potato is soft.
Puree in a blender or use an immersion blender until smooth. Return to pot. Add coconut milk, maple syrup and lime juice. Simmer for about 5 minutes, (if the soup is a bit too thick  you can always add a little more broth )
