Carrot Potato Soup

Nothing is more comforting to me on a chilly day than a warm cup of creamy soup and a crusty piece of bread. This simple, healthy soup is made with carrots, potato, onion, garlic, some seasonings and chicken broth. Once cooked, the soup is puréed in the Magic Bullet blender to create a creamy texture. I like to top this soup with a dollop of sour cream to finish it off just before serving. Carrot Potato Soup Ingredients 1 onion, […]

Carrot Purée

A dip usually has word associations like, “cheesy,” “creamy,” or “heavy.” It’s rare that those associations ever wander into the territory of “healthy” or “light.” After you try this carrot purée dip, though, you’ll start seeing dips in another light. This recipe uses the Magic Bullet to blend carrots and a little bit of spice to create a magical veggie dip you’ll be serving over and over again. Carrot Purée Recipe Ingredients 2 cups carrots 1/2 tsp. cumin 1 tsp. […]

Thai Chicken Pizza

This Thai chicken pizza is inspired by a crazy good pizza I had the other weekend up in South Lake Tahoe, CA. Instead of marinara sauce, this pizza is lathered with Thai peanut sauce made from scratch using peanut butter, soy sauce, fresh ginger, garlic and brown sugar. Then it’s topped with chicken and mozzarella cheese and baked in the oven. After it’s done baking, this Thai pizza is topped with fresh ingredients, including cilantro, carrots, sprouts, and lime. What other […]

Carrot Ginger Dressing

People can be extremely picky about salad dressings. If ever I decide to have a salad for lunch or dinner from a restaurant, my decision on where to eat is basically based on the quality of the restaurant’s vegetables and how much I like their salad dressing. One of the best parts about the Magic Bullet is the ability to control the proportion of ingredients you use, and that benefit is incredibly useful while making salad dressing. This recipe uses […]


Flädlesuppe in German is translated to pancake soup in English, because the main ingredients in this traditional soup are thin, shredded pancakes! I love this soup because it serves as a quick, easy-to-make lunch with little investment and lots of gain. You can use vegetable or beef broth, depending on your preference. Celery, leek, green onion, parsley and carrots give it a little texture and flavor, but the shredded pancakes are the absolute star in this dish. Here is a tip for shredding […]

Carrot Cake Smoothie

I discovered a delicious new smoothie recipe that I want to share with you guys! I call it the Carrot Cake Smoothie. Unlike most smoothies made with a lot of fruit, this smoothie contains little fruit and, therefore, less sugar! Its flavor comes from the cinnamon and nutmeg, which blend perfectly with the carrots, pecans, and milk. The banana adds some texture and a bit of natural sweetness. Don’t forget the raisins! Those are a must in any carrot cake […]

Curried Carrot Soup

This recipe is inspired by a friend of mine who loves curry more than anyone I know. He sprinkles curry on just about everything and always eats with it by his side at the dinner table. Curry pairs very well with carrots and I found that this creamy carrot soup tastes even better when it is spiced up with some curry powder. The secret to the nice texture of the soup is the addition of one small potato. Top the […]

Kickin’ Carrot Cashew Dip by Lizzie

These weeks are flying by! How is it Wednesday? How is it the 22nd of September? HOW IS IT 2011???? Anyway, hope you’re all having a great week.

During these stressful times, I find a good healthy snack is always a good way to get a mental (and mood) boost. Since I’ve been […]
