{slow cooker butternut squash soup}



Give me a “Hell Yeah” if you’re as excited as I am that break is over.  So ready to get back to our regularly scheduled routine + LIFE.

Longest winter break ever!  Even Bay was missing school and her homies.

And how is it only Wednesday?  Feels like it should for sure be Friday by now, right?

Dropped these pretty girls off at school and ready to finish off the rest of the week!! Impatiently awaiting FRIDAY!



Anyone else craving warm creamy soups right about now?  But, not with tons of cream + unhealthy shit?  You’ll never believe it?  I’ve got one for you 🙂

And it’s a slow cooker recipe, which is always welcome in my house.  One dirty dish!  Prep + pop in the slow cooker + go do yo thang.  Come back to dinner ready.

Kaia friendly + vegan + Gluten-free + healthy AF!


It’s healthy and so good.  Just ask my Mama!

She’s my healthy recipe taster.  I always leave a Tupperware (with toppings in a ziplock on top)  and call my Mom and tell her I’ve got something BOMB for her to taste.

I like a second opinion when I dig a recipe.

And let’s be real, Bay is NO help with it comes to anything with the word squash in it…lol.


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4 lb butternut squash, peeled + cubed
  • 1 granny smith apple, peeled + chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled + chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded + chopped
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 32 oz. vegetable stock (4 cups)
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (about 3 limes)
  • 14 oz. can light coconut milk

Optional toppings:

  • chopped cilantro
  • bacon crumbles


Here’s what you do:


Prepping the veggies takes dayyyysss.  Allow about 30 minutes for prep.

Place all ingredients (except lime juice + coconut milk) into slow cooker.

Stir to combine.  Cook on low for 8 hours.

When ready to serve, stir in lime juice + coconut milk.

Blend half of the soup with an immersion blender or in a food processor (in batches).

Serve warm with your toppings of choice.  Cilantro + crumbled bacon were my picks.  The second day I added a dash of cayenne pepper too.  Highly recommend.
