Low Carb Sweet Creamy Butternut Soup with Yogurt

The weather is getting cooler and fall is in the air. It’s getting cold, rainy and windy over here so we are warming up but enjoying some healthy easy homemade soup. I love eating a healthy low carb sweet creamy butternut soup, it’s bold and full of flavor definately satisfying.

This is a simple recipe because it comes together in just 30 minutes, and only requires simple ingredients. For me this is a win win. Since fall is in full swing, the butternut squash season is abundant. I’ve started grabing some every time I am at the grocery store. I can’t resist its just delicious for soup.

This soup will be your families favorite, especially on evenings when you want to eat something warm, creamy, flavorful. Don’t forget it’s healthy so you will want to make a batch ahead of time and have it on hand for the coming week. Its great for entertaining and taking along to fall gatherings.

You can enjoy with a bit of yogurt or coconut cream, add some pumpkin seeds and make it delicious and irresistible. Seriously perfect for the chilly weather.
