“I've made this soup fast, tasty, and easy! It 's creamy fruity with a slight kick from the ginger. A real comfort soup. I don't peel my squash just blend it up smooth in a vita mix or any high powered blender. You never know it's in there. But your body will love you for it! This I tried to keep low in fat and sugar by using low fat milk and pears in a light syrup. In the picture I garnished with Spicy Roasted Butternut Seeds / Pumpkin Seeds and fresh ripe pears slices.
