Zucchini Soup

Hubby got me a Vitamix blender to celebrate getting our tax return and I'm a little obsessed with it. This soup took all of 5 minutes to put together and it was really yummy. Plus, it cooks in the blender, meaning no pot to clean! Healthy, easy, and delicious all rolled in one? Yes, please!

Zucchini Soup
*Adapted from the Vitamix Whole Foods cookbook

2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 medium zucchini, chopped
1 medium carrot, halved
1 stalk celery, chopped
1/4 cup potato flakes (or half a cooked baked potato)
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
Pinch salt
Fresh cracked pepper

Place all ingredients into the blender (you could certainly use a food processor and then cook this on the stove). Turn the blender on Variable 1 and quickly increase speed to Variable 10, then to high. Blend for 6-7 minutes or until heavy steam escapes from the vented lid. Serve and enjoy!
