With the arrival of cold weather, we change many of our eating habits and preferences. Once the month of December gets underway, we often forget the light and fresh dishes of the summer and feast on hot and more elaborated options. And now that it’s getting colder and colder, we crave a delicious hot soup more than ever. I have come to realize that, using a blender and the ingredients we choose or already have at home, we can prepare a delicious and nutritious soup with our favorite foods and a yogurt base. Today I want to share the recipe for my creamy spinach soup in a yogurt base. My little ones love it and it’s an excellent option that’s both colorful and nutritious. It can also be the perfect starter for a dinner with family or friends. So try it and please your family! As I’ve mentioned before, don’t forget my favorite phrase: The power is in the flavor!
