Broccoli Soup is the vitamin soup of champions!! Yesterday our son asked me to make Broccoli and Cheese Soup as a snack. Here’s the quick and easy recipe I came up with using the Vita-Mix and ingredients I had on hand!! When I don’t have time to make my own Chicken Broth, I only use low-fat, No MSG, low sodium stock. I used Greek Yogurt instead of cheese to make it creamy!! Let’s keep that as “mommy secret!” Yesterday, I saw my son drinking it out of a glass with a straw!!!
