Creamy Butternut Squash with Carnation® Evaporated Milk

With all the pumpkins and squash available at the farmers markets, how can I not be dreaming about another soup?  Once again I used Carnation® Evaporated Milk to get those creamy results, and it did not disappoint.  Check out this simple and delicious recipe for Creamy Butternut Squash.

Recipe - Creamy Butternut Squash


  • 1 tbsp[15 mL] Crisco® Vegetable or Canola Oil
  • 2  onions, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • ¼ tsp [1 mL] red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 8 cups [2 L] butternut squash (about 3 lbs/1.4 kg), peeled and cut into ½” (1.3 cm) pieces
  • 8 cups [2 L] chicken stock, vegetable stock or water
  • 1 tsp [5 mL] salt
  • ¼ tsp [1 mL] pepper
  • ¾ cup [175 mL] Carnation® Regular, 2% or Fat Free Evaporated Milk


    (Before adding the Carnation® Evaporated Milk you can see the soup is a bit loose)

    Heat oil in a large saucepan or stock pot, on medium heat. Add onion and garlic (and red pepper flakes, if desired). Cook for 3-5 minutes, until tender and fragrant.

    Add squash and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add stock, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Cover pot, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes or until squash is tender.

    (Look how creamy it is with the addition of Carnation® Evaporated Milk)

    Puree soup in blender, food processor or with an immersion blender. Return to heat. Stir in evaporated milk. Taste and adjust salt and pepper, if necessary.

    TIP: Use already peeled and cut up squash for easy and quick preparation.
