Vegan MoFo, Mostly Liquids, What I Ate Wednesday ~ Smoothies & Soups!

I started my day with a smoothie again but before I get to that I have a couple of soups I want to share with this. 

This is my dinner tonight.  It's Sweet & Creamy Carrot Soup - Pureed!

It has the following in it...



2 Pounds of Carrots
10-ounces Veggie Broth
1 C Water
1 Onion
1 tea Thyme
1/4 tea Turmeric
2 T Agave
2 T Coconut Milk

I sampled a bit last night and it was pretty good!  Quite sweet!  I may try it again and add some ginger down the road for some kick!

For this next soup...

It's a Spicy Tomato & Herb Soup - Pureed - and it was super yummy!
It has the following in it...

2 Onions
4 Cloves Garlic
1 tea Wildtree Dill
Lots of Black Pepper
12-ounces Stewed Tomatoes
4 Plum Tomatoes
1 T Agave Nectar
1 T Vegan Mayo
2 T Parsley
2 T Basil
2 T Chives
Cayenne Pepper to taste

This was my first time using Vegan Mayo in a Soup.  It's probably not really needed but I thought I would try it.  It contributed to the overall Zing, tho, I guess.  You could also use Vegan Sour Cream or Tofu, too, I suppose blended with a bit of Lemon Juice.


And look at today's breakfast!  It's that color awesome!? 
All I did was use...

10-ounces frozen Blueberries
2 C Almond Milk
1 T Sun Warrior Chocolate Protein Powder

It was quite tasty, too!
So excited!  Breakfast TWO Mornings In A Row!  Woot!

    1. Thanks! I'm thinking next time to use more of the chocolate protein powder - the blueberry flavor trampled the chocolate in this

  4. Everythng looks colorful, I like that.

    A few days ago, I made a carrot and dark green "soup" it was delicious. It was made from the freshly juiced carrots and dark greens that I prepared. I lightly warmed the juice and that was my "soup" for the day. :)

  5. I love carrot puree soup ;) so good especially with coconut milk! I imagine it is great on garlic rice, too! What vegan mayo brand did you use?

  6. Just wondering. Do you eat anything that's hard in your diet?

    1. Normally I do/can - just not this week. Good question, tho, as it looks like I do not. I don't really eat 'really' hard or tough things because I really don't like getting things stuck in my teeth and I like to eat easy-to-digest foods. But next week I will be posting more solid items.

  8. The soups sound great and I'm a fan of adding cacao powder to my smoothies for a little chocolate treat once in awhile. :-)
