Servings 4


  • 12 oz frozen butternut squash
  • 12 oz frozen sweet potatoes
  • 1 apple diced

  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • salt and peper

  • Once finished, allow pressure cooker to naturally release for 10 minutes and then quick release the rest.
  • Once pressure is released, open and blend completely with an immersion blender until desired consistency is achieved.
  • Once blended, add heavy cream and stir.
  • Now it's time to enjoy!


This soup is so tasty you can literally scoop it from the bowl and go to town. We love to pair this soup with a slice of French bread to sop up all the goodness. You can also top with toasted pumpkin seeds, toss in a few chia seeds or really anything else you can think of! These elements add protein and a nice crunch to a smooth soup. Ahh… perfection!


This recipe makes enough for about 4 people to have a hearty-sized bowl. If you want to serve more, just double the batch. Easy peasy!

Another great bonus for this soup? It freezes like a dream! Grab yourself some freezer bags and pop them in the freezer for a ready to heat and eat meal any time you need it. Pro tip: Lay the soup in bags flat in your freezer until they become solid, then you can arrange in a more space efficient way.

Seriously, this Instant Pot butternut squash soup is a mama’s dream. I’m alllllll about an easy meal these days and I’m telling you – it can’t get any simpler than this one. Try it out and let me know what you think!
