Butternut Squash and Apple Soup is perfect for those chilly fall and winter nights. The apple in this recipe adds a perfect tartness to balance out the butternut squash!


Right from the time my kids first started solids (it’s been a while!), two of their favorite foods have always been squash and apples. Steamed, baked, pureed, whatever…they love them. Now that winter ingredients have returned in abundance at the farmer’s markets, I was really excited to try out this Butternut Squash and Apple Soup. 


You would be shocked at how much kids love soup, especially pureed versions that they can drink from a cup or bowl. It really lets them experience control over their dining experience. Kenya, Chloe and Gemma truly slurp this recipe up like it’s a smoothie.


Even better, my husband who’s been trying to “lose a few” ate bowl after bowl in an attempt to eat more vegetables. This is a fantastic recipe because it’s super healthy, fast to prepare and cook and so easy to make! All you have to do is combine all the ingredients, bring to a boil and then puree them! 


But, I recently discovered this Philips Soup Maker and it’s a game changer which does all the work for you and makes this already simple recipe even simpler!
