So if you haven’t noticed I have been on a soup kick lately. You didn’t notice, oh well the post I put up three days ago was a Carrot Soup with Carrot Top Garlic Pesto and it was DELICIOUS. I have had a few run ins with sickness this past month so my food intake has decreased and soups and bone broths have been my way to stay nourished while kicking my cold’s ass. Good news, I am on the mend and can hopefully get back to some sort of physical activity shortly once my immune system reboots. Good thing I didn’t register for the Crossfit Open this year either because there would have been no way of me doing it. That makes me happy because that would have been $20 wasted that I could have spent on bacon instead of posting scores online to tell me how 115,000 other people were more fit than me HAHA. I am not hating on Crossfit, I still do it daily just not at a competitive level anymore, that just wasn’t fun for me.
Oh yes, back to the recipe. Most of you probably still aren’t reading this anyways so my ADHD is a mute point. For those that are still reading, THANK YOU. You make me feel loved when you take the time to read the words I so eloquently type on the screen. Or not so eloquently since most of the times you are all correcting my spelling and grammar, which I actually appreciate so keep it coming. One of these days I will take the time to proof read my posts. That will be the day when we all of a sudden have 26 hours in a day so I can add that to my list. For real though, this soup is AMAZING. The combination of the lime with the squash is to die for and this is probably one of the simplest soups you can make. Know what that means? You can make it in no time and have it ready to impress all your friends at a dinner party. You now look like a culinary genius. Your welcome.
I really have nothing else to say, but there was an empty spot of white and it bothered me today so I took the opportunity to say that you are AWESOME. Have a beautiful day wherever you are and do something to make a stranger smile.

Can’t wait to make this! Thank you for all the lovely recipes! Your cooking is great.
This is amazing! Added a bit of coconut milk to make it a touch thinner. Otherwise perfect, and the flavor is fantastic!
Oh perfect, thank you for leaving a comment and trying the recipe :)
I’m fighting another cold myself. Sadly I’ve almost killed my bone broth supply….need to cook a turkey for this fam asap! Anyway, I have 3 smaller different squashes I need to use. They’re all some form of pumpkin, do you think they would work in this recipie?
Yes they would
GREAT recipe. Delicious and perfect for a cold day. I added some coconut milk to yield a soupier consistency. Keep em coming!
Oh awesome. I love this recipe.

Where did you get the napkins in this picture? I love those!! I’m gonna run out and get the ingredients for this soup today. This looks awesome!
Honestly, I don’t remember I have had them for quite a while! But thank you :)
This was outstanding! A very tasty recipe that has beat every other butternut squash soup I’ve tried. Thanks so much for creating and sharing it.
That looks so yummy!! I can’t wait to try it.
Btw, the point is moot, rather than mute. ;)
Thank you so much :)
This was AMAZING! The lime makes it a step above all other pumpkin soups! Thank you! :)
You are soo welcome
This soup is GREAT. I totally was not expecting it to turn out so amazingly. The combination with the lime was unexpectedly delicious. I will be making this soup regularly. I added 4 tbsp of coconut milk in place of the butter as I do not tolerate dairy well. I also added 2 cups of bone broth as I found the soup to be quite thick. My butternut squash was roasted. I LOVED how easy it was! Thanks George!
You are so welcome
I cannot wait to try this!! Sounds so yummy! Also since you don’t mind the grammar corrections – it’s “moot point” not mute point lol. Sorry my friends hate the grammar stiffler in me but it comes out lol
But couldn’t mute point translate to silent point? Hmmm
Absolutely delicious. I love the unexpected combination of flavors, and it is so simple. Well done! I can’t wait to make it again.
Awesome Liz, thank you so much for the comment and I love this soup too :)
This was absolutely delicious. I roasted the squash so it came out more like a puree which was fine by me. The lime convo gives it a great taste. Thank you for sharing!!!
You are so welcome, I love it roasted
Oh my giddy ant!!! Just made this for lunch for my Mum and 18 month old. We devoured the lot! It was amazeballs George!! xx
So awesome. I am glad you all loved it
I made this soup tonight. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it – really liked the addition of lime.Many thanks for the recipe. Will served the remaining soup on Saturday night when we will have guests.
Anne I am so glad you both liked it. I hope your guests love it
This looks yummy, I’m going to try it this weekend! Is the lime juice really all the liquid you need?
That is all you need Petra

Oh yum I love butternut soup, yours sounds delicious!
Hope you love it
Your soup looks very tasty! I’ll try it out some time!
been stalking your recipes for a long time! So I went ahead and made this. Of course as cooking goes I tweaked it a bit by adding a chunk of ginger, used coconut milk, and added some curry to it. AAHMAZING do believe I could eat this for lunch for a month!
Thats great news Bea. Did you like the combination of lime with it?
its a great recipe, cant wait to try it! however, i think its better to steam the squash instead of boiling it in a water to preserve nutrients
You are correct alseia, you can make it however you want. I will add that note
This looks bomb. Can’t wait to make it. I made your paleo apple butter and it was sooooo good. It made my house smell like fall even though its spring but hey who cares right?! Thank you for all the recipes.
You are most welcome
Wow – never thought of putting lime with butternut. A good soup is always a win when trying to impress dinner guests. My husband makes a wonderful curried butternut soup – he cooks the butternut chunks in our homemade chicken stock and then uses and immersion blender. Super yum! Going to suggest trying lime next time.
Let me know how you guys like it please
This recipe looks delicious and very easy to prepare (big plus for me). Think I’ll try it this weekend. I also recently made your cranberry orange scones and they were crazy good. I think I might need to keep a stock of these in the freezer. They are amazing and EASY to make. Thank you so much for posting your recipes!!
You are so welcome Cyndi, thank you for taking the time to come and leave me a comment. It is much appreciated :)
I sure do, that is so awesome that you found them. Hope you enjoy
Thanks for making me smile, George!! I need to be told I am awesome, even if you are just filling an awkward white space. And even more thanks for the squash soup, which I love, and yours looks super easy and yummy! Have a great day.
You are awesome Donna, and even more so for leaving a comment :)
