In the slow cooker I put butternut squash, carrots and onion with some wonderful spices. Then after these are soft and tender you then blend them. I added to the mixture cashew milk that gives it a very unique sweet and savory flavor. What an amazing squash soup.

I got this butternut squash soup recipe from for one of my favorite local coffee girls, Chrissy. Chrissy works at the lighthouse expresso stand. One day I was driving threw to get coffee and she asked if I wanted to try her homemade butternut squash soup, so I did. It was so amazing I asked if I could get the recipe and share it on my blog. I got the basic recipe from her, then added a few extra spices to give it my own little twist. It is the most delicious squash soup. The main ingredient in this soup that gives it a better flavor is the cashew milk.

Butternut and carrots in a slow cooker

Slow cooking makes it so easy. I actually got a whole butternut squash, peeled it then chopped it up. You can buy the squash already prepared, but I like doing it myself, then it feels like I put some love into it. I did buy the carrots in a package already prepared for me. Ok I cheated on that because I had them. I use whatever I have in my refrigerator.

After that I chopped up an onion threw it all in the cooker with some chicken broth and spices and let it cook for about 4 hours. You want the veggies to be very soft when you fork them. Once cooked you can place them in a blender or I have a hand held blender to blend everything up. It comes out thick and creamy. You can add more chicken brother or cashew milk to make it the thickness you like. I prefer mine a little on the thick side. g new.
