Creamy Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

Creamy Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

Ingredients:

5 cups Butternut Squash, peeled and cubed (after roasting)
4 cups unsweetened Almond Milk
3 cups filtered Water
1 large Apple (approx. 1 cup)
1/2 cup chopped Carrots
1/4 cup Sweet Onion, diced
2 large Garlic cloves
2 large Dates, pitted
2 tablespoons Coconut Oil
2 teaspoons of ground Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Sea Salt, to taste
1/2 teaspoon ground Black Pepper
1 medium Orange, juiced

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and grease lightly with coconut oil (by spreading or dolloping on the bottom).

Using a sharp vegetable peeler, peel the butternut squash while whole until the thick skin has been removed and you’re left with the bright orange flesh. After peeling, cut squash long ways (creating 2 halves). Scoop the seeds from the wide end of the butternut squash, using a spoon. Cut remaining butternut squash pieces into 1-2 inch cubes.

Spread the cubed and peeled butternut squash cubes onto the lined and greased baking sheet. Season with salt, pepper, garlic, and a dash of cinnamon. Bake at 450 degrees for 30 minutes or until soft (you can bake longer to create a more caramelized end product, upwards to 45 minutes).

In a skillet, sauté the onions and garlic until soft and fragrant. Add roasted butternut squash, sautéed onions and garlic and all remaining ingredients into a Vitamix, high speed blender, emersion blender, food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. Keep chilled until serving.

Serve warm/hot and garnish with Classic Cashew Cheese or crunchy walnut, pumpkin seeds. Enjoy!

    "If you want to WIN more in life you are in the right place my friend! I am blessed and privileged everyday to help people WIN more in life.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
