Rich and Creamy Butternut Squash Soup (Dairy-Free)

Butternut Squash Soup is rich, creamy, and delicious with a smooth, silky texture. I removed the butter and cream, making this recipe completely dairy-free!

Dairy-Free Creamy Butternut Squash Soup…

  • Rich and creamy butternut squash soup is relatively easy to make.  
  • The prep work is minimal if you can find the butternut squash already pre-chopped at the market, then this soup takes only a few minutes to put it all together.
  • This recipe only needs to simmer for 25 minutes, and then it’s pureed into a rich, creamy texture.

The Butternut Squash…

  • Butternut squash can be found in most supermarkets during the fall and winter months. 
  • They appear to look like a large pear-shaped, golden-yellow pumpkin, rather than a squash.
  • However, they are delicious, sweet-tasting, and loaded with antioxidants and vitamins A and B, along with phytonutrients.  
  • They contain similar health benefits to the other squashes; including the benefits of being low-calorie, having no saturated fat, and no cholesterol!

All the more reasons to keep this vegetable on rotation! 😉

This Creamy Butternut Squash Soup turned out amazing!

My favorite aspect of this version of butternut squash soup is the texture.

It is one of the creamiest, most delicious soups I have ever created… especially since I eliminated all the butter and heavy cream from the recipe.

Best of all – no one will notice the difference, the taste is still excellent!

Most restaurants usually load their butternut squash soups with heavy cream and butter. We know that….

Instead, this recipe contains No creams and No butter. It is completely dairy-free! 

A win-win!! Don’t you think?

Rich and Creamy Butternut Squash Soup has a smooth, silky texture, and it's delicious! Easy to make and dairy-free, this soup is ready to serve in 25 minutes!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 to 4 carrots -chopped
  • 3 stalks of celery - chopped
  • 1 onion- chopped
  • 1 small butternut squash (about 2 to 3 pounds)- peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 1 (32 ounce) low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. dried thyme
  • a pinch of cayenne pepper
  • fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • Optional: grated Parmesan cheese, for serving


  1. In a large soup pot, heat olive oil and sauté onions, carrots, and celery for about 5 minutes, until they have softened. Add the butternut squash and sauté for about 2 minutes.
  2. Add salt, thyme, cayenne pepper, vegetable broth and water. ( Liquid should cover the vegetables, if you need to add more water- do so). Bring to a boil. Cover, lower the heat and simmer for 25 minutes. Taste the soup and season with black pepper to taste.
  3. Turn off the heat. Set aside, and allow soup to cool down about 20 minutes.
  4. Transfer in small batches to a blender, and pulse on low speed a few times to puree and pour the soup back into the pot. Or use a hand-held immersion blender to puree the soup until it's luscious and creamy. If it becomes too thick, add more water. If necessary, reheat before serving.
  5. Serve with grated Parmesan cheese at the table.
  6. Yields: 2 quarts

  1. Butternut squash is my favorite, and that soup looks so creamy and delicious! I have a couple of butternuts in my cupboard right now destined for some soup this weekend. 🙂

    1. Thank you Sue! This soup definitely is perfect for this kind of weather.
      And with more snow in the forecast for this weekend- we'll be cooking soups all day again, and I know you will too.

    1. We love this soup too! In fact we have been making soups all week but this was worth posting and I have one more to post next week.
      The weather has been absolutely brutal this week – I am missing the warm weather in the South! But I am having such a great time with my grand babies. My husband who couldn't make this trip is
