This easy and delicious cheddar broccoli soup is a doctored version of Bear Creek Cheddar Broccoli Soup mix. It is rich, yummy, and delicious. It reminds me of the Jason’s Deli broccoli cheese soup, which is likely far more fat laden than this soup. I use 1/2 water and 1/2 skim milk to keep fat grams to a minimum, but the soup still tastes rich and creamy.

This Bear Creek Cheddar Broccoli Soup Mix is the secret foundaton for this yummy soup. The packets are found in the soup aisle of most grocery stores. The original recipe calls for just adding water; my version is tweaked a bit by adding skim milk and fresh broccoli.

I absolutely love my Cuisinart immersion blender. I use mine mainly for soups, but it can be used for smoothies, shakes, baby food, etc……This savvy hand held appliance is something I couldn’t do without.

The next time you are in the soup aisle, grab an envelope of this mix and give this soup a try. I think you’ll be amazed at how easy and delicious it is! As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
