Creamy Butternut Squash Soup

HALE Bone Broth, was born out of necessity. I discovered the value of bone broth and couldn’t find anywhere, and I mean anywhere. So I decided to make my own and my friends and family all loved it.  

I found bone broth about 3 years ago, but I feel like bone broth found me. I had just said goodbye to my mother, who lost her 2 year battle with cancer, at the young age of 60. I was thrown into a world of grieving. I found myself reflecting on her life, what was important in life and just how short our time on this planet is. Through watching her battle with an awful disease, I realized how truly important health is when it comes to living a quality life.

I have always had a passion for health and fitness, but I was missing how it contributed to my overall well-being.

I was looking for a way to help me recover and refuel from the day to day wear and tear physically, but really what I needed was a way to enhance my life with the right nutrients and minerals to support a healthy lifestyle.

I realized I was missing the element of healing and replenishing my body. The answer was bone broth for me.


2 butternut squash peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes

1/2 cup onion chopped  

2 apples cubed and core removed

1 teaspoon poultry seasoning  1/4 cups carrots chopped

4 cups Hale Bone Broth (heated)

3 large sage leaves

2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

1 teaspoon Duxbury sea salt plus more for taste

1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

1 cup of coconut milk

2 tablespoon maple syrup


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

On a sheet pan add the butternut squash cubes rinsed in a bit of water.

Coat with maple syrup and pumpkin pie spice.

Roast for 25-30 minutes until slightly crispy and browned.

Meanwhile, chop the other vegetables.

Once the butternut squash is done, in a large pot add all the ingredients, except for the coconut milk, and bring to a boil.

As soon as it starts to boil turn the heat down to a simmer and cook covered for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Let it cool slightly then puree it in a blender and add it back to the pot.

Stir in the coconut milk and heat on low making sure not to let it boil.

Serve with a drizzle of olive oil, maple syrup, or coconut milk and garnish with sage and gluten-free croutons (optional).
