Butternut Squash Soup (AIP, Paleo)

Updated: Dec 27, 2021

Squash is polarizing in my house. I love it all ways. My husband loves it some ways. My kids don't love it any way.

So squash - a key staple for AIP and Paleo - is a bit of a struggle in our family. But I still make it because at the end of the day, I need to stay nourished too!

To make this a complete meal, serve with shredded or cubed meat, and a fresh salad.


  • 1 large butternut squash, de-seeded, de-skinned and cut into 1" cubes

  • 1 can coconut milk

  • 2 apples or pear, de-seeded and de-skinned, cut into cubes

  • 1 Tbsp turmeric

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 1 cup cilantro, chopped for garnish


  • Place all ingredients but the cilantro into a slow cooker. Cook on low for 4 - 6 hours, until squash is tender with a fork.

  • Blend until smooth with a hand blender, or high powered blender.

  • Garnish with fresh cilantro.
