  • 1 butternut squash (approximately 4 cups), peeled and diced
  • 2 apples, peeled and chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cups of low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Prep Your Ingredients: Start by peeling and dicing the butternut squash, chopping the apples and onion, and gathering your vegetable broth, ground cinnamon, salt, and pepper.
  2. Simmer to Perfection: In a large pot, combine all the ingredients: the diced butternut squash, chopped apples, and onions, along with the vegetable broth. Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer over medium heat. Cover the pot and cook for about 20-25 minutes or until the squash and apples are tender and easily pierced with a fork.
  3. Season to Taste: Once the butternut squash and apples are soft, it’s time to add some seasoning. Stir in the ground cinnamon and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Blend Until Smooth: Using an immersion blender, carefully blend the mixture until it becomes velvety smooth. Be very careful when blending hot liquids because they can splatter.
  5. Adjust Consistency: If you prefer a thinner soup, you can add more vegetable broth until you achieve your desired consistency.
  6. Serve and Enjoy: Ladle the creamy Apple Butternut Squash Soup into bowls and garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon or a few apple slices if you feel like being fancy.
