Creamy Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

creamy collagen butternut squash soup

This delicious soup recipe enhanced with spices is a perfect dish for the winter months. If you’re a soup-lover like myself, then you know that any good soup is built on the foundation of onions, garlic and celery – and this collagen recipe truly delivers.

To make these wonderful flavours shine, I like to add nutmeg and paprika when sautéeing the vegetables. Then, I pour 2 scoops of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides for an easy boost to your collagen intake. Tasty and functional – a win-win!

This butternut squash soup can be enjoyed all by itself, with a warm loaf of buttery bread on the side, or even as a starter to a meal. If you’re ready to start adding it your usual rotation, keep scrolling on to get started.
