I've been blending soup again!
I love that I can blend some fresh ingredients together and have a nutritious meal on the table in minutes.
This time I went for a rich tomato blender soup that is suitable for the 5:2 Diet. A diet I'm sorely needing to get back on after the indulgences of my holiday to Cyprus (I've not told you about my holiday yet, but I will).
I do have to warn you although these blender soups are super healthy and fresh, they are also intense in flavour, more so than a regular soup. So do expect a real hit on the taste buds. Graham isn't sure about these intense soups, but I rather like them. I like how pure and quick they are.
If you want a milder blender soup, try my Green Smoothie Soup, which is utterly delicious and a good way to start. It comes in at just 42 calories per serving.
This rich tomato blender soup comes in at 33 calories and a little extra if you add a little milk or soya milk to make it creamy.
I made my raw soup in my Optimum 9400 from Froothie. It is a powerful beast and I love it. If you're looking for a high powered blender that will make life easier in the kitchen and is easy to clean this is the one for you.
I can offer my readers an extra £20 off the introductory price of £329.

I am entering my soup into this month's No Croutons Required hosted by Lisa over at Lisa's Kitchen and The Vegetable Palette hosted by Shaheen over at Allotment 2 Kitchen and Credit Crunch Munch hosted by Sarah at Maison Cupcaek, but set up by Helen over Fuss Free Flavours and Camilla over at Fab Food 4 All.
Disclosure: Froothie sent me an Optimum 9400 blender to review but I can honestly say I love it and I'm using it all the time, so all the opinions are my own and I wasn't expected to write a positive review.
