Acorn Squash Soup is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Austinartgirl from This soup was easy and so delicious I had everything on hand to make this soup today, and I am so glad that I did! I did substitute the milk for original unsweetened almond milk, otherwise the ingredients stayed the same. I would love to try this with a vegetable or mushroom broth to keep it vegetarian. I found that the acorn squash was naturally sweet, so I would not add any more maple syrup than what was called for.

Can I use Heavy Whipping Cream instead of low fat milk?
Yes you may use heavy cream instead of the low fat evaporated milk. I would recommend reserving this till you have blended the soup reduce the speed to variable 2 remove the lid plug and pour the cream through the opening. Blend for another 30 seconds.
