Creamy Butternut Squash Soup – Slow Cooker

Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

Slow cooker butternut squash soup with simple ingredients, it’s so rich in flavor and healthy. I used the pre-cut butternut squash from my local Costco to save time and of course, it’s so much easier than cutting and peeling fresh butternut squash. This creamy soup is made without heavy cream. You can use coconut oil in-place of butter to make this butternut squash soup even healthier. This is the perfect creamy soup for fall, winter or any time of year! My kids and husband couldn’t stop eating this soup.

Butternut squash is very healthy and has  a sweet, nutty taste similar to that of a pumpkin. It provides significant amounts of potassium, highest levels of vitamin-A, carotenes and vitamin B6. Also good for cancer prevention, better eyesight and weight loss benefits.

Hope you’ll enjoy this easy slow cooker recipe -butternut squash soup! Here’s one of the products I used: Imagine – organic vegetable broth.

    This recipe looks so delicious and I love that it isn’t made with heavy cream. As much as I love heavy cream, I need to make healthier options for my husband, so this is great. I also appreciate that it is a slow cooker recipe, I’m all about using my slow cooker!

    I love butternut squash soup, the sweetness and the flavors come together perfectly! I would love to make this one of these days! It’s comfort food for me, plus I’m curious about adding that maple syrup as well. I’ve never tried that before.

    Butternut squash soup is one of my favorites, minus the peeling and cutting of the squash itself. I can’t wait to try out this new recipe.
