Dairy Free Cream of Mushroom Soup With BlendTec Blender (And BlendTec Blender Giveaway)

We have “food issues” in our house.

And not “food issues” like…”I only drink high-end Columbian Coffee.” or “The only steak I eat is Filet Mignon.”

We have Mr. Lactose-Intolerance. (aka Mr. Dairy Free)

And this is a HUGE bummer for Mr. Lactose-Intolerance because he has lived a lifestyle for years of “more dairy is better”.

Cream Cheese….ADD IT ON!

Baked Potato Soup….MY FAVORITE.

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream…..I’LL TAKE SECONDS PLEASE.

So as you can imagine, not being able to eat dairy without taking a handful of pills has cramped Mr. Lactose-Intolerance eating style. He tries to not care as the rest of us pig out on Silas & Maddy’s Ice Cream while he eats sorbet. Or smiles while we eat Three-Cheese Lasagna and he has pasta and sauce.

But honestly, a little part of him dies inside watching his family chow-down on all of the foods that he used to love to eat.

Well, not anymore!

With the addition of one of the BlendTec Blenders - the BlendTec Total Blender Classic Wildside – we are able to create amazing Dairy Free Dishes like Cream of Mushroom and Wild Rice Soup and Chocolate Banana Ice Cream. (Recipes below.)

And I’m so excited to tell you that my friends at Blendtec have offered to give away one Blendtec Total Classic Wildside Blender (ARV $454.95) plus Twister Jar (ARV $119) to one lucky Kansas City Mamas reader. I’m so excited to share this giveaway with you all because it is truly an incredible appliance.

PS: Without a doubt…this is a Cadillac Blender and once you own one, you’ll wonder why you waited so long because it does everything….grain mill, smoothie, milkshakes, ice cream, soup, pesto, bread, pie crust, pizza dough and so much more. You will love it!

a Rafflecopter giveaway
 

Contest will be open till end of day on October 14, 2012. Winner will be notified by email and has 48-hours to respond before another winner is chosen. Good Luck.

Disclosure: Blendtec provided the giveaway prize and I received a BlendTec Blender and Twister Jar as well. However, written remarks on Mr. Lactose-Intolerant are entirely my own. Want more information – check out my full disclosure statement.
