Vitamix Blender Makes Your Soups Creamiest! - My Favorite Blender
I can't even begin to tell you how much I enjoy my Vitamix!
Since we bought it, our family's been eating more fruits and vegetables, and my cooking is so much easier. I LOVE making smoothies and ice cream in the summer, and delicious creamed soups in the colder months.
There's no longer the whining at the table that "I don't want vegetables": nothing gets wasted and all the nutrition is in my food. YUM!
Butternut Squash Soup Variations
Have fun with your soup
Don't limit yourself to one recipe: experiment by adding things you love. Here are some examples I tried:
- add a few cloves of garlic for a little more zing
- roast the butternut instead of boiling it
- add celery cubes for a little bit of a crunch
- add some cinnamon
It's your turn to use your imagination.
