Did you know that you could make soup in your high powered VitaMix blender? The VitaMix website has 57 recipes for VitaMix soups. I summarized the ingredients of the soups for you. This will give you an idea of what’s in each soup, and whether you might want to investigate further. If so, follow the link to the VitaMix site, then click explore recipes, then type “soups” in the search box. The list of all 57 VitaMix soups will come up, in alphabetical order. I have used the exact recipe names here, so recipes of interest will be easy for you to find. Locate your recipe link for specific ingredient amounts and preparation instructions.

I have grouped and sorted these recipes into categories:

17 Vegetable Soups

20 Cream Soups

10 Cold Soups

10 Soups with Meat


My summaries can serve as a shopping list. I have further sorted these VitaMix recipes for soup according to whether or not you have to do any cooking outside of your VitaMix blender, such as sautéing vegetables, or precooking meat, or if the soup can be “cooked” entirely in the VitaMix.


VitaMix Can Heat Soup


How does this cooking work? The powerful motor of the VitaMix, which is four times faster than the average blender, can also run for five minutes or more without the slightest worry that the motor will burn up. The friction of the ultra fast blades, running for three to seven minutes, creates heat which enables you to make a large selection of steaming hot soups.

The VitaMix blender blades can also turn four times slower than the average blender. You can throw in ingredients like beans or corn, and they will not be pureed, but merely distributed throughout the soup.

VitaMix Tortilla Soup

VitaMix Lady Makes Tortilla Soup


Places like Costco have VitaMix distributors demonstrating these blenders. There are lots of samples: juices, smoothies, and ice cream. One of the most popular demonstrations however is the Tortilla Soup. There is a recipe in the cookbook that comes with the VitaMix, but I think most of the reps have their own versions. Our guy used “all the usual suspects” like tomatoes, carrots, celery, onion, bell pepper, and a bit of jalapeno pepper. He threw in a small chunk of cheddar, and a couple corn tortillas. Then he turned the blender down low and threw in a bit of chicken and a few tortilla chips. Finally, he turned the blender super low, and added some black beans and corn. This soup was restaurant quality!

I have included a video of VitaMixLady, who is demonstrating the VitaMix, including her version of the Tortilla Soup. I like that she tells the health benefits of all the ingredients. She used to have a VitaMixLady website, but now her website is BlenderLady, which has her soup recipe.

I recently saw a VitaMix demonstration at Costco and my girls and I tasted samples from soup to ice cream made in this awesome machine and it was all delicious! Too bad I couldn't afford the machine, though...

Thanks Kimberly. I feel absent. Even though I am only working part-time, it's pretty much brought my hubbing to a screeching halt.

I have a Health Master which is similar. I am bookmarking this because you have great recipes.Sharing. Voted.

Does the Vita Mix taste like garlic and transfer that taste/smell to smoothies if you mix both savory (spicy) and thing like fruit smoothies? This happened with my Ninja blender and a garlic taste stuck there for a while.

Yours is a great recipe. I actually like the way you explained and demonstrated those recipes. Vitamix blenders are the best for making any good recipe!

I have had my Viamix since 12/23. After using it daily for a week I no longer hav cravings for soda or fast food. I green smoothie a day with healthy choices for meals and I am down 10 pounds!

Wow Greg that's fantastic. Consider adding hemp hearts to your smoothies for additional health benefits.

I recently bought the Dash Digital 1400 watt 2.2 Amp blender. It works very well for doing the same thing as the Vitamix, but for 1/3 the price.

I purchased from Sams Club, and if you can find it in store it is $129 right now. Go on You Tube and see for yourself the demonstrations for this great unit.

Love the recipes i made a creamy blended carrot soup once it turned out great. Blenders defiantly can be helpful at times.


karen 11 months ago

Are you saying, just put these ingredients into the blender? My husband has a vita mixer in the cupboard and thought I would give it a try.

Aldi has a knockoff Vitamix called Ambiano for $70-$80!
