7 Healthy Vitamix Soup Recipes to Enjoy Year Round

Smooth and creamy Vitamix soup recipes can be enjoyed year round! They’re cozy, warm (most of them), easy to make and healthy.

Even better, these recipes use a wide range of fresh, seasonal ingredients such as beets, cauliflower, sweet potato or butternut squash.

Making soup recipes in Vitamix blender.

Soups are quite simply, some of the easiest and nourishing meals possible. You can load them up with vegetables and warm yourself from the inside out. It goes without saying that they’re perfect for the fall and winter months, but truly, they can be enjoyed year round.

How to Make Soup in a Blender

When it comes to making soup in your Vitamix blender, there’s usually two steps:

  1. Roast, saute, or boil some vegetables.
  2. Blend the hot cooked vegetables with other ingredients and liquids (i.e. broth) in the blender for a smooth consistency.

If the ingredients are already hot, it takes just one to two minutes to purée everything together. Super easy.

But if you have a Vitamix model with a soup function, you can add room temperature ingredients (assuming they don’t need to be cooked) and create a steaming-hot soup in under 10 minutes. How? The friction of the blades! Yes, the blades really can make a delicious, piping-hot soup.

You know what else the blades can do? They can intensify flavors of raw aromatics, like onion, garlic and spices. So I always recommend roasting or sauteing onion and garlic, or starting with a minimal amount, and adding more as desired.

A Few More Blended Soup Tips

I’ve made my fair share of blended soups, and in doing so, I have two important tips I’d like to share:

  • Make an extra large batch: You know I’m a huge fan of meal prep, and soup is quite possible the easiest meal to freeze and store. I love to store soup in my Weck Jars or silicone Souper Cubes. They’re perfect to reheat on a rainy day or when I’m in need extra nourishment. Watch how I meal prep them on the video below!
  • It’s all about the toppings: Blended soups are creamy and delicious, but without chunks or texture they can look a little boring. So jazz them up with toppings! Some of my favorites include herbs, greens, nuts, seeds, spices, creams and yogurt.

With all of those tips, you’ll be a soup blending master in no time. So without further ado, here are my 7 favorite Vitamix soup recipes to enjoy year round! And I show how to make several of them in the video below. Give it a watch!

  1. The butternut squash soup was quick, delicious and will definitely be on repeat this winter season. Thanks for sharing Lisa! 

  2. Good healthy Recipes thank you for sharing 

  3. Thank you for the good recopies.
    Keep supplying the new ones.

  4. We made the beet soup, carrot ginger, and roasted butternut squash soups last week. I loved the butternut squash one and the carrot ginger one was really good too. The beet one turned out fine but I felt like I could have added more ginger or something else. It definitely had a root vegetable flavor that was a bit too earthy for me, but it was a good alternative for trying something different.

    • That’s great that you gave all those soup recipes a try Emily! Carrot ginger is always my personal favorite, and you could certainly add more ginger to the beet one next time. :)

  5. I’m looking for your veggie broth recipe, Have you posted one yet?

    • Hi Alice – I have not posted a veggie broth recipe just yet! But If you sign up for my email list, you will receive a free PDF guide that includes a bone broth recipe :)

  6. Just made the beet soup and it came out perfect with a creamy texture and delicious taste.  The hardest part was the prep.  I now understand the need for a Vitamix over my blender, which is my next purchase.  Thank you Lisa.

    • Hi Paul – So glad you loved the beet soup! The flavor and creaminess makes for the perfect autumn soup :) And yes! A Vitamix really is a game changer… Can’t wait for you to get one!

  7. I love your recipes, Thanks For Sharing.
