Soup Time! Banana Squash Soup with Apples

This super simple recipe will have your guests asking for more and convince them that you truly are a chef! Banana Squash is loaded with Vitamins A & C, potassium and iron. Combined with the sweetness of the apple, cinnamon and nutmeg, you will consider this dessert! I always double this recipe as it disappears in minutes and it tastes even better the next day.
