Creamy Butternut Squash Soup
This Creamy Butternut Squash Soup is hands-down the best I’ve ever had. I created this recipe for my 7-Day Fall Into Winter Reset Nutrition and Lifestyle Cleanse because butternut squash has high fiber content and is full of vitamin C, E, beta-carotene.
The first time I made this recipe I knew I needed to redeem myself. It was too watery (I had 4 cups of extra water in the recipe). Instead of beating myself up about it, I decided to modify the recipe and add coconut cream instead. This time around I made it blog-worthy.
This soup is perfectly smooth, creamy, and flavorful.
Free of the Common Inflammatory Foods
It’s easy to digest. One of the goals of my Fall Into Winter Reset is free of common inflammatory foods (gluten, dairy, corn, soy, and nightshades). Avoiding these foods should help to ease some digestive distress. To make it creamy you add in a can of unsweetened coconut milk as a dairy-free alternative.
This Butternut Squash Soup Recipe is rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium, and Iron. There is no added sugar, however, the squash is naturally sweet. Read about the health benefits of butternut squash.
You can top it off with walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, or sesame seeds if you prefer a little crunch.
