Slow Cooker Blissful Butternut Squash Soup – an EASY crock pot recipe with very little prep and only 6 ingredients!

This soup was a huge hit at home yesterday! I had half the butternut and half the buttercup left over from the Roasted Winter Squash Medley recipe I posted this week, and decided to make a soup with it in the slow cooker. But it was early, and I was feeling lazy and didn’t feel like peeling it so as an experiment I did this in the slow cooker with the skins on much like you would if you roasted it in the oven. This was so EASY, the squash came off the skins with a spoon in minute once it was cooked!

I didn’t completely immerse the squash in broth, instead I just put 2 cups along with the shallots and turned it on 4 hours high. Then I added coconut milk and pureed it. Topped with a little more coconut milk and a pinch of nutmeg, this soup had us all swooning with every spoonful.

This is so good for you, and loaded with 9 grams of fiber! If you wish to use all butternut, that’s fine, just be sure to cut it in half before putting it in the pot. You can add more broth to thin it out if it’s too thick, I found this to be perfect. Here’s a few more Soup Recipes you may also enjoy!

And since so many are asking, although I have and love my Instant Pot, I still love my slow cooker! I have the 6 Quart Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker (affil link). I love it because you can adjust the time you want it to cook, and it automatically turns to warm when it’s done. It also has a probe for meat that automatically shuts off when done. I hated my old crock pot, it burnt everything and my food had a weird taste. This slow cooker is so great, I actually own several!

  1. This was awesome! I used my instantpot. I used 3 10-ounce bags of frozen, cubed butternut squash and doubled the rest of the recipe. I didn’t have coconut milk, so I used ricotta that I wanted to get rid of (I think I could’ve used light sour cream, too). I had apples so I used those instead of pears and a regular onion instead of shallots. I pressure cooked it for 25 minutes then added ricotta and blended. Yumm!

  2. Obviously I’m in the minority in my opinion on this recipe – I am usually a skinnytaste ambassador – I bought most of the cookbooks and have shared the online recipes and links countless times to friends.  I search this site first when looking for a recipe because it never lets me down.  Which is why I was surprised at how lackluster I found this recipe…  I made it as written (exception being I used my IP instead of slow cooker) and just was underwhelmed. I even tried to zhuzsh it up by adding Apple like one of her cookbooks recommends, thought maybe some Greek yogurt would help, nope – so I’m trying to make it tolerable by adding pumpkin seeds and sour cream as a garnish.  First time I wouldn’t recommend a Skinnytaste recipe.  Maybe I got a bad squash. 😂. I can’t wait to try something else next week 🥰

  3. made this with half butternut and half acorn squash. lighter in color and not as sweet, but very comforting.

  4. Loved this soup so much. It tastes amazing and should be super easy. I think the only complaint I have would be that I cooked it in the crock pot with the skins on but found it very annoying to scoop the squash out of the skin so next time I will probably peel it and then cook the same.

    Thanks Gina for a great recipe for this winter!

  5. Hi, So using only 1/2 of each of the squashes?

  6. Do you think you could use Oat Milk as an alterntative to coconut milk?

  7. So excited to make this soup out of 2 butternut squashes I grew myself in my quarantine garden. I used 2 butternuts, a whole carton of chicken broth, and 2 shallots. Put a shake of Penzey’s Bouquet Garni before starting the slow cooker. After tasting it after blending, I wanted a little more sweetness and flavor, so I added 1/2 cup of pumpkin purée I had in the fridge, 1 tbsp of dark brown sugar, salt and pepper, more Bouquet Garni, a little extra nutmeg, and a shake of Penzey’s Sweet Curry.  Oh and then served with crumbled bacon on top. Yessir!!!!
