Rated 3 out of 5 by janice63 from Vitamix Squash Soup Medley Becomes Pumpkin Soup Because I combined two Vitamix recipes I didn't want to rate this particular Acorn Squash Soup highly. I don't care for sweet soup but wanted to use freshly baked pumpkin to make an easy soup. I used the 2 cups chicken broth, canned milk, and 1 cup mashed pumpkin in place of the acorn squash from this recipe. But I took the seasonings from the Pumpkin Soup recipe on this website: onions, garlic, brown sugar, paprika, and nutmeg in the same amounts called for in that recipe. It was very simple and we enjoyed it. I will make this combined recipe again. If a person prefers a more distinct pumpkin flavor more pumpkin could certainly be added.

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.
