Rated 5 out of 5 by pinkattack from Love my Vita Mix I bought this well over 7 years ago. I had a Heart Attack and just wanted to feel and live better. This blender allows me to make some very healthy foods. I love the soups. Try raw people. It will turn your health completely around and if you want longevity in a product. You can't go wrong with this blender. I have had many friends get past the price for the quality and durability.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mary Alice from Terrible! Yuk! Very thin, unflavorful! Mushroom prep needs to be rethought.

Does the water need to be boiling? or is this a coold soup?
This recipe is a cold soup, but could be made with hot water or blending for 5-6 minutes to heat.
