Summer Squash and Spinach Soup-Puree Recipe

Recipe for pretty light soft soup-puree made of summer squash, spinach and milk. And isn’t this radiant green color fantastic?

Any kind of summer squash or combination of these will work for this recipe I think, I used young zucchini and yellow squash.

Use milk for lighter version (I’ve used milk here) or half-half for reacher one.

Also, I’ve cooked fresh spinach for this recipe, but I think frozen may work as well if added to the pot later in the process to avoid overcooking, the color maybe vary in this case.
