Crock pot butternut squash & pumpkin soup

October 11, 2016

We all love a warm bowl of soup this time of year, to me there is nothing better than going for a crisp chilly fall walk and then home to warm up with a good bowl of creamy soup, that just screams cozy comfort to me ๐Ÿ˜‰ I wanted to try out a butternut squash soup, but I wanted to change it up a little from the traditional recipes already out there, and I needed it to be easy. I threw a whole bunch of yumminess in the crock pot and hoped for the best, the end result was a delicious creamy butternut squash & pumpkin soup with a little after kick to it too! At just 1 smart point per 1 cup serving this one is a keeper! Serve it up with a fresh piece of my cornbread for a nice low point meal.

Crock pot butternut squash & pumpkin soup
Author: 
Recipe type: Soup
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
 
1 SP per serving
Ingredients
  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  • 2 granny smith apples, peeled and diced
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cups pumpkin puree
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp nutmeg
  • ⅛ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ¼ tsp dried basil
  • 1 cup light coconut milk
Instructions
  1. Place all of your ingredients except for your coconut milk into your crock pot.
  2. Cook on high for 3-4 hours or low 7-8 hours. I like to cook mine according to my plan for the day, I cooked mine on high for 2.5 hours then turned to low for 2 hours.
  3. Using a inversion blender, or a reg blender blend your soup til it is nice and creamy. Stir in coconut milk and let warm for 15 minutes, if soup is too thick for your liking feel free to add in a little more broth or water.
  4. Makes 8- 1 cup servings at 1 smart point each, the only thing with points is the coconut milk, for that reason I did not figure out the nutritional info for this recipe. Feel free to top soup with a little coconut milk or a sprinkle of brown sugar.
  5. Store in sealed container in fridge, freeze after a few days.

      You could cream (like a half & half) or milk, I had someone tell me these used some pumpkin spice creamer.. you could even use greek plain yogurt

    I wasn’t sure about the apple-I’ve never added that to a soup before but this was delicious!! I’ve been eating it everyday this week for lunch and will be making a new batch this weekend. Thanks Kate!

      Thanks, I hope you enjoy it! I did not measure it out, it was one full butternut squash, thinking back if I had to guess at least 4 cups worth, maybe more?

    Question for you….I am making this tonight. I never cook but it looked easy enough and my husband raves about his friends. Can you use chicken broth instead of vegetable?

    We made this tonight with a few revisions!

    I sauteed the onions and garlic before adding to the crock pot. I also added some curry powder and extra nutmeg, and a couple of carrots!

    Do you have to use coconut milk or yogurt? Wondering how it would be without that? I had made a butternut squash soup once before that was just the squash, apples and broth and it was pretty tasty. I might try it with the pumpkin but leave out the milk. I love creamy soups so just curious if it would be too thick

      I am sure you could change it up to suit you, it may make it thicker though .. ๐Ÿ™‚
