My daughter and I just adore Butternut Squash Soup! This Fall, make it healthier with the addition of organic kefir instead of cream! Adding the creaminess you desire with the addition of probiotics and calcium makes this spicy, delightful soup even better! If you like a more traditional flavor, opt not to add the curry spice and use a mix of fall-inspired spices instead, such as nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon.
