    ive just got my delivery and it says to make the soup with a blender, i hadnt bothered to get one as i dont like shakes, previously when i did ll, the soups didnt need blending.

    will pop out and grab one tonight if need be though.


    im so excited now.

    I don't have a blender or even a hand blender. I've got a cheap plastic shaker. For the soups I put a little bit of cold water in the shaker, then the powder. I then pour the paste into a bowl and fill it up with boiling hot water....mmmmm

    My fav? Tomatoe and basil LUSH!!!!!!!

    Good luck my lovely x

    Yep hand balloon whisk works better for soups -lumps is horrible. I follow one of the stickies or first posts that says put a bit more water in a pan when warmed add powder blend then heat to right temp. It said to add stuff so I add chilli podwer to Thai and tomato /pepper to mushroom and veg.

    I use a whisk for soup and just and a plastic beaker for the shakes but I am contemplating buying a blending bottle on ebay which is a plastic beaker with a round ball with slits in the middle which acts as a whisk they are supposed to be good so think I'm going to order one this weekend. Hope this helps xx

    i loved the veg soup too, tried the mushroom one, but it was scarily lumpy, hopefully it wont be too long before the magic cup comes.

    what do you put in the tomato soup, im dreading it as i dont usually like tinned tomato soup, but as im proud owner of 21 sachets im gonna have to try one soon, thought i might throw in tabasco.

    I just use a sealed jug with a little mixer ball inside. 5 mins of shaking and all good.
