Sweet and Creamy Butternut Squash Soup

Sweet and Creamy Butternut Squash Soup created by 876645

This filling soup serves well as a healthy dessert (squash is an excellent source of magnesium, potassium, vitamins C and A, and a good source of calcium). It can be served hot or cold and has an interesting texture. I like this recipe because it is simple to make, yet has a lovely flavor. If you enjoy a thicker, more custard-like consistency you can use less than the directed amount of skim milk. If you prefer a soupier thickness, then you should add more skim milk during the simmering process.

    I just made this using 1% milk and regular brown sugar and it was delish! I did make a much smaller batch 2 servings (about 1/2 lb of squash) and noted that you need more liquid while cooking the squash than the conversion tells you - I ended up added about 1/4-1/3 C water while steaming the squash. Otherwise, fantastic!
