Butternut Squash Soup

Stephanie Gallagher
This butternut squash soup recipe is a delightful combination of sweet and savory flavors. Tart Granny smith apples and savory butternut squash combine with coconut milk and a hint of cinnamon for a creamy butternut squash soup the kids will love!

  • 2 10 oz. packages peeled, diced butternut squash (or 1 large butternut squash, peeled and diced)
  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 small Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 5 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. dried sage
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • apple chips for garnish (optional)


  1. Cut butternut squash into 1-inch pieces (the pre-peeled and diced butternut squash usually comes in larger, uneven chunks).

  2. Heat butter in a heavy saucepan or dutch oven over medium heat. Add apples, onion and butternut squash.

  3. Saute 10 minutes or until softened slightly.

  4. Add coconut milk, vegetable broth, salt, sage and cinnamon. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer until sqush and apples are tender, about 45 minutes.

  5. Use an immersion blender to puree soup until smooth. Or, if you don't have an immersion blender, let soup cool and puree in batches in a blender.

  6. Serve warm, garnished with apple chips.

Super yummy soup!, Member Mrs.DebbieSims

My husband just made his own variation of this recipe but without the apples. He used corn and left over roasted chicken from the super-market to add some protein. The kids LOVED it. I didn't have to nag my seven year old to finish his dinner and my toddler wanted more!
