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.

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 Michelle P from Amazing soup I tried a neighbors Vitamix just to try out before I bought it. This soup was good the first time around but yet a little to thin. I added a whole acorn squash instead of half and added pumpkin spice instead of just cinnamon. Turned out awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LF57 from Super easy and very good! I pressure cooked the acorn squash, peeled it and followed the Vita Mix recipe. Wow, this is outstanding! It has become a cold weather favorite in my home!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Island Girl Too from Love It I have been looking for a sweet squash soup receipt, this fits the bill, however it was very thin because you do not specify how much squash should be used. It just says 1/2 other acorn etc, etc. I would like to know how many cups to make it thick. I buy pre-cut squash from the store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EveMarie from Surprising flavor Tried the acorn soup as one of the many soup recipes that came with my Vitamix. Surprised at how flavorful it was, and feel the flavors intensified the next day. It’s on my menu for Thanksgiving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KTcrochet from Tasty I substituted vegan "chicken " bouillon and soy milk with an unidentified squash (cross-pollinated) from my garden. I was tempted to leave out maple syrup as I didn't want a sweet soup. It was perfect! Great for a quick lunch. I have pounds of the squash precooked in my freezer.
