How to Remove Foam & Froth From Vitamix Soup

Items you will need

  • Spoon or ladle
  • Gravy separator (optional)

Soups made in Vitamix blenders, high-performance blenders that puree just about anything including hot foods, fall prey to the same froth and foam as soups blended in a food processors and with immersion blenders. Vegetables and proteins commonly release impurities during the first few minutes of cooking them. When you blend hot soups in a Vitamix, however, the intense shearing force of the blade ejects impurities to the surface, where they're more visible but also easier to remove.

Step 1

Blend the soup on high until smooth. Spoon as much froth and foam as possible from the top of the soup using a spoon or ladle.

Step 2

Allow 1 minute for the soup to settle.

Step 3

Skim any remaining impurities from the surface. Pour the remaining soup into a gravy separator and filter it if you see fat pooling on the top.


  • Mix soup ingredients at a lower speed than usual to reduce the amount of air that gets into the mixture.
