  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 cans (12 oz each) evaporated milk, fat-free
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
Cube squash and soften in microwave (approximately 5 to 10 minutes). Once softened, purée in food processor or blender. Meanwhile, Peel and shred apples using a grater or food processor. Set aside 1/4 cup. Warm oil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add all but 1/4 cup apples. Cook and stir until apples soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in squash and pumpkin pie spice. Add the evaporated milk about 1/2 cup at a time to the squash mixture, stirring after each addition. Cook and stir over medium heat until soup is about to boil. Ladle into individual soup bowls. Top each 1 Tbsp of unused apples (from the 1/4 cup that was set aside earlier). Serve.
