Recipe: Butternut Squash Soup


Butternut Squash Soup. 

Tonights facebook live is a recipe i have had in all of my cleanses.  It is great for super cold days like today and also great when you need a sweet comfort food, so to speak. 

Most of the work comes from prepping the squash. You can now buy the squash already prepped if you are in a pinch in most grocery stores. You may pay a little more but it is worth the time if you don't have it to spare. 

 cut both ends off and slice down the middle, remove seeds.

Once this work is taken care of the rest is pretty easy sailing. 


1 pound peeled butternut squash, cut into chunks

1 medium onion, sliced 

 red apple cut into chunks  

1 1/2 cups of veggie broth

1 tsp sea salt  

Pumpkin spice or cinnamon, cloves, or even Italian herbs or dill · 

1/2 cup of canned coconut milk 

option of honey, maple syrup or coconut sugar for a sweeter version. 

Stick all the ingredients into a high speed blender except milk and herbs. Blend on high for 10 min ( if you want it hot and steamy) then mix in milk and herbs when done.  Play with your flavors and spices to get it exactly where you want it.  If you are choosing to keep it raw, you will need to blend it for a good amount of time in your vitamix to get it warm and creamy.   Enjoy!
