You can make creamy veggies soups that taste great and are filling!!! Just roast whatever veggies you want, then add to stock pot with some veggie or chicken stock, a little fat free half & half... and blend right in the pot with the immersion blender!!! Amazingly low calorie and low fat, but they taste like those cream filled restaurant soups!!! Plus you get your fresh veggies in!
My favorite is a Roasted Tomato and Basil soup.... so low in calories you can even have the grilled cheese with it!!

I recently purchased a Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender. This is an immersion blender that was only $40.00. I used to make soups and stews and have to blend half of the mixture in my Vita-Mix which I also love. But now, I can just use this handy blender right in the pan to blend. So much easier! It also came with an attachment that chops, veggies, fruits, and nuts very well. What a deal!
I use an immersion blender to make my own smoothies - I can stick it right into the glass with the ingredients. Then the end pops off and can go in the dishwasher. It is so much easier to use and clean than a regular blender!
I couldn't live without my stick blender (immersion blender)- Makes smoothies and soups so much easier to prepare when you don't have to transfer from the blender and clean up is a breeze!
