Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

There is something so comfortably satisfying about a big warm bowl of creamy tomato soup on a lazy Sunday.

I have a presentation at my old high school this week and I think all the preparation has got me seriously nostalgic for some of my childhood favorites – Tomato Soup. Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. White Keds. And my Malibu Barbie with…Gymanstic Barbie’s head. I was just as OCD efficient at 5 yrs old as I am now. I didn’t want to take the time to change Barbie’s clothes.. so I would change their heads. Either super smart or…just creepy.


But either way I am so excited to have been invited back to my old high school to give a presentation about my blog and a cooking demonstration with Ashley on Wednesday! We’re going to be teaching the kids all about nutrition and  healthy cooking with a live demo of my Buffalo Chicken Chili. Absolutely cannot wait! Will definitely be posting all about it later this week with a YouTube video of our presentation and lots of pics. So lets hope nothing burns, spills, or explodes…woo!

So back to this delicious velvety smooth tomato basil soup recipe. Start to finish – you can have this soup on the table in 30 minutes! Its so easy and so addictively good, the perfect balance of flavors with the savory creamy tomato soup and bright basil. Plus this is low cal. Super low cal guys. It might be creamy but you won’t find any cream in this recipe thanks to low-fat yogurt and almond milk.


So enjoy! And get a little nostalgic with a warm cup of my tomato soup, a good book – and then be seriously grateful none of us have braces anymore… :)

  12. I’m fairly certain that if I gave a presentation at my old HS, they’d all stare at me like I was a crazy person (because I am). I am also fairly certain that you, on the other hand, did (will do?) a fantastic job. :-)

    And I really want that soup and grilled cheese. NOWWWW

    • Whipped Baking says:

      hahaha! They would not! And it was SO much fun! The kids were amazing, I’ll post pics in a week or so (gotta get parent permission slips!). But the demo went super smooth, that’s what I was most nervous about :)

  13. I’ve tried adding a bit of yogurt to my tomato soup for creaminess, and I love it. Great recipe! :)
