During the fall, one of my favorite soups to make is butternut squash soup. The sweetness from the butternut squash is a fantastic way to naturally satisfy sugar cravings. Combine the naturally sweet flavor with silky smooth texture after it’s pureed in the blender and you’ll be reaching for bowl after bowl!

Simple swaps that give this fall favorite a healthy makeover

Traditionally, butternut squash soup is made creamy thanks to a few cups of heavy cream and extra sweet with apple juice or a heavy dose of added sugar.

In this recipe, we are roasting the vegetables to highlight their natural sweetness. Then we are swapping heavy cream for full-fat coconut milk for a nutritious upgrade without sacrificing decadence and creaminess. With just a touch of maple syrup at the end, this roasted carrot butternut squash soup is creamy, dreamy and healthy!

So what exactly is special about this roasted carrot butternut squash soup that promotes a healthy skin glow?

Carrots and butternut squash are loaded with vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin and powerful antioxidant that acts as an anti-inflammatory and helps keep skin looking youthful and glowing. The natural orange hue is due to beta-carotene, which gives skin the appearance of a summer glow when eaten in large quantities.

When I used to work at a juice bar, I would frequently load up on carrot juice when I was preparing for a video shoot to help maintain clear, glowing skin. It worked like a charm!

  1. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I’ve been looking for a good butternut squash soup (tried two this fall that didn’t turn our right). Never would have thought about adding the sweet flavor of carrots, or ginger and tumeric. I can’t wait to try this!

    1. I hope this one turns out better than your other attempts! Let me know what you think 🙂

  2. I always feel nervous about adding ginger because I don’t know how much to add without overdoing it. I think that’s my problem when using it in recipes. I do love ginger when i have sushi though! I’ll definitely have to try this out! It sounds delicious 🙂

    1. Hi Kiara! You can always add less than the recommended amount and increase to your liking. My husband does not like ginger and he loved this soup!

  3. It feels like I am constantly cold this winter and craving recipes just like this! My acupuncturist says I am supposed to have warming foods, with ingredients like ginger and turmeric. Perfect!

    1. Yes! It’s so true. I’m studying this right now in my health coaching classes and now is the time for warming foods!

  4. I LOVE carrot soup, it’s so healthy and delicious. No joke, I eat it about once a week, but I always buy it from the supermarket. Thanks for sharing your recipe, I think I will give it a go, making it myself!

    1. I am loving carrot soup! It’s so easy to make at home and you know exactly what is going into it, which I love.

    1. I usually top it with pumpkin seeds, but I liked switching it up with the roasted chickpeas!

  5. As much as I HATE slicing a butternut squash [and I really do loathe it] it just might be worth it to me if I get this delicious soup in the end! I absolutely adore butternut squash soup, but paired together with carrots sounds even better!

  6. Love butternut squash and the combination with carrots. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe. It’s been saved to make later in the week. Thanks for sharing. BTW, your pics are great!

  7. Oh my! Carrot and butternut soup is one of our favourites, but we’ve never done it with roasted vegetables before. Definitely must try this!

  8. This recipe has some of my all time favorite foods in it! It looks like the perfect winter dinner to warm you up and make you feel good at the same time. Thanks for sharing!

  9. I had this for lunch today snuggled with my blanket on the sofa finishing up some projects. What a treat this was!!! Thank you Carly! I love your recipes!
