Today, I am sharing my extremely easy Healthy Butternut Squash Soup that will help ease you into the mood to embrace the cold weather.

This soup is as healthy as it is delicious.


In our home, we actually eat various soups throughout the year, even on those hot summer days.

I made it a point to have more soup in the colder days and long nights a couple years ago, versus the bright sunny days in the summer.

  1. This looks divine! I have a butternut squash sitting on my countertop right now and today is the perfect day for soup! Will try this for dinner tonight! Thanks for sharing :)!

  2. OH LORD THIS JUST MADE MY DAY! You have no idea how much I love butternut squash soup. I always buy it from a box but Its going to be a chilly weekend here in Toronto so I may just make myself a pot. Thanks for the great recipe 🙂

    • hahahah I am glad I could make your day. I sometimes get it from a box too; it’s quicker. Please stay warm. Thanks for reading, Angela!!!

  3. Oooh with just a bit of winter left I need to try this soup. I wonder what I would need to use instead of whipping cream since I am vegan. Do you think coconut cream would steal the show?

    • I will be honest, I do not know a lot about creating vegan recipes. However, I am interested to know the answer. My sister in law is the perfect person for me to ask. I will inquire about that. Great question! Now, I have some research to do….

  4. I have a squash in the pantry and I’m making this this week! Butternut squash soup is my absolute favorite and if it can be lightened up a little bit, even better. This looks awesome!
