Thick, creamy, and absolutely fantastic, this Butternut Squash and Apple Soup is a great winter warmer, and super easy to make!
Happy New Year!
We take a (short) break from endless baked goods and cheesecakes, to bring you a super delicious, super healthy soup perfect for the cold weather, but still won’t break your New Year’s Resolutions…. if you make them and presuming that one of them is “eat better”?
New Year’s Resolutions? Yeah, I don’t really make them either. HA. I do have a couple of general ones, mostly things like “remember to enjoy the kids” and “spend more time with the family”.
Even if it’s not, this soup is worth making for your family. I can get everyone to eat this with zero complaints, the apple adds a touch of sweetness that appeals to the boys, and the Husband and I enjoy it too.

Shall we talk about this Butternut Squash and Apple Soup? Great!
What I love about this the most, is that you really just cut up your ingredients, and throw them in a pot and let them simmer.
A quick blend with the immersion blender, and you have a really great tasting soup, that is thick and creamy and really great for you!
How to make Butternut Squash Soup without a blender:
If a blender isn’t in the budget, I totally get it. I regularly use a stick (immersion blender) instead. It’s easier anyway! Added bonus is that stick blenders are relatively inexpensive (around $30).
If I can’t find mine (my kitchen is a disaster, y’all), I have been known to use a hand mixer (that I use to whip cream) instead.
This soup CAN be made without any automated tool, though. Just cook until very very soft, and use a potato masher to squish it as best you can, then whisk it until super smoooth. You’ll get an arm workout – so maybe this can play into New Year Resolutions too? You’re so welcome!
Can you freeze Butternut Squash Soup?
Absolutely! I like to put it in single serve containers and freeze up to a few months. It’s great to have a few different soups to choose from in the freezer, so I typically make a double batch of this.
One pot for tonight, and one for the freezer.
Tips for peeling Butternut Squash
Pop the squash, unpeeled, in the microwave and heat for a minute.
The heat softens the skin, so it’s easier to peel!
