Soup

Can be made room temperature, chilled, or warmed. When making a warm soup, use warm liquids. Caution: warm liquids work better than hot, as the hot liquids tend to expand during blending and can leak out of the container.

Basic recipe

1/2 - 1 Cup warm or hot liquid of choice
1/2 avocado (or other creamy ingredient: e.g. tahini, nut butter, milk, tofu, yogurt, cottage cheese, cream cheese, oils, or kefir) (maximum) fresh or frozen in 1" pieces
1/4 Cup of other fresh or frozen vegetable
1 Tbs. of protein powder (or green powders)

Optional ingredients

Source of EFA (essential fatty acids) from flax oil, hemp oil or seeds, or soaked chia seeds
1 Tbsp. of nut or seed butter (e.g. sesame 'butter' = tahini, almond / hemp / peanut / hazelnut / macadamia / cashew / or pumpkin butter.

Liquid choices

Desired amount: 1/2 - 1 Cup liquid of choice
(Note: if more than 1 1/4 cup of liquid is used blender can overflow and might leak out during the blending process)
Carrot juice (or any vegetable juice of your choice)
Yogurt (soy or dairy)
Milk (regular or dairy, soy or lactose free)
Tofu (blend into liquid first w/ 1/8 cup water)
Water

Vegetable choices

Desired amount: 1/5 - 1/3 cup of fresh or frozen vegetables
(Note: maximum amount of vegetable is 1 2 cup, adjust liquid levels to fit into blender container)
Most fresh vegetables in season that you like can be used for savory soups.

      Recommended vegetables include:
      Tomatoes
      Green peas
      Cucumber
      Celery
      Squash (zucchini, crook neck, or button)
      Cauliflower
      Corn
      Lettuce (or any leafy green, Cilantro, parsley, mint, etc.)

Note: These soups will be slightly chunky, unless very soft vegetables / greens are used. The more vegetables you add the thicker the drink / soup. With a 1/4 cup liquid you can create a dip or sauce like dishes from most vegetables and your choice of liquid.
