Living Well HealthMaster!

A couple of weeks ago I got Montel Williams’ Living Well HealthMaster, and since then I’ve been making almost everything in it.  Salad dressing, soups, sauces, fruit smoothies and vegetable juices all by just pressing the button.  It doesn’t leave behind a stringy mess like a blender, yet retains all of the fiber and nutrients instead of discarding the way juicers do.

It comes with several recipe books.  That’s where I got this cucumber soup recipe.

Chilled Cucumber Soup

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 seedless cucumber
1/2 red onion, peeled
1/2 garlic clove, peeled
1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

Add all ingredients into the HealthMaster.  Secure the lid.  Turn on the speed control to 1 (low).  Turn on the machine.  Increase the speed to 8 (high) until blended.  Serve chilled.

I loved not having to chop the vegetables beforehand.  So easy.  I served this soup with a sprig of fresh mint and crumbled queso blanco.  Refreshing and nutritious!
