Posted by The Big Guy

Today I made some soup today as part of my quest to create tasty Vitamix weight loss recipes.

I woke up today at an uber encouraging 297.8 pounds. A little over 4 pounds lighter then I was on day one of this diet. Obviously I won’t incur these results every day, but this was encouraging, especially for day 1.

I had two meal replacement drinks yesterday. The banana/yogurt/flaxseed/steel cut oat smoothie and fruit and green smoothie that I have yet to name. Here is the recipe.

Vitamix weight loss recipes - Cream of Asparagus Soup:

  • A bunch of asparagus
  • some leaves of kale
  • one cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 cups low sodium/low fat chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • Worcestershire sauce to taste
  • A tablespoon of chili powder
  • 1/5th tablesoon of cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 7 baby portobello mushrooms
  • A whole white onion

Add the first 9 ingredients to the Vitamix blender. Blend at variable speed, slowly increasing the speed to the highest level. Let it blend for a minute or so.

Select variable speed and  blend the mixture at level 4 for 30-45 seconds. This will chop the onions and mushrooms nicely. Use the plunger tool to force the vegetables down if need be.

Transfer the soup into a saucepan and let it simmer on the oven for 45 minutes. Let refrigerate overnight. I ate this for lunch the next day.

Trust me, it tastes better then it looks.

 


I couldn’t make any of these recipes for green smoothies without my Vitamix blender. This blender has changed my life.
