    Hi,

    I'm only on day 2 of LL so a newbie!! I have a question about the soups for you experienced lot!

    Do the soups mix easily? I ask because I put mine in the blender yesterday to make sure that the powder mixed well but it left me with a froth! Now whilst this is lovely with the shakes it is not so good with the soups!! So can I just mix it in a bowl or will I be left with lumps of powder?

    Thanks!

    Hiya

    The froth can happen!

    I used to use a kenwood hot drinks maker as it had a tap at the bottom so you could pour out the drunk and leave the froth in the maker.

    Hi Caz,
    I have only ever used my braun hand blender for soups as the first chicken i had was really powdery and revolting :p. I try to scoop off the froth - you could also get some muslin or something and drain it if it is really offputting...? I just try to eat around it with a spoon and it's usually dissolved by the time I get to the bottom! :)

    I use a hand blender and don't get any froth. However I just stir with a spoon (for quite some time) in the office and I get froth. I find if you let it sit for a few minutes and keep stirring every now and then, the froth goes.

    Thanks for your replies. I can cope with it, I just thought if I could mix without froth it would be better!

    Really enjoying your blog Guy!!

    Are we allowed to additional seasoning to the soup? I tried the chicken which seemed very bland and has put me off the mushroom and vegetable a bit. A bit of salt and pepper might improve it no end.

    I use my stick blender and pulse it - it makes some froth, but I stir it gently for a moment or two and the froth breaks down and goes away - hope htat helps :)

    I'd never had Tabasco in my life before LL. Now I can't have my soups without it. Love the stuff!

    Ok dozy bird question alert - does the tabasco 'alter' the taste of the soup or does it just 'heat it up' spicy wise? Enquiring minds need to know!!

    Bit of both.......

    It's like adding black pepper, but tastes better! I love it in my soups, when I dont have it I miss it.
