Weight Loss Magic Smoothie in a glass

Our Weight Loss Magic Soup recipe makes a ton of soup – and this is a quick, easy, way to use it up! If you are trying to lose weight, this will add some variety to your diet. The lemon and cucumber bring out the fresh flavor of the vegetables.

This drink is similar in taste to a Virgin Mary (or sometimes called a Virgin Bloody Mary), especially if you add Worcestershire and Tabasco sauce. The measurements given in the recipe are a recommendation – you can add as much or as little as you like to suit your tastebuds!

Weight Loss Magic Soup (and Smoothie) FAQs:

We have had SO MANY comments/questions regarding this recipe and we find ourselves answering the same questions over and over… we are having a hard time keeping up! Give these FAQs a read and hopefully we will have a quick answer to your question! Thanks everyone! ☺ — Your friends at Favorite Family Recipes


What makes this soup/smoothie “magic”?
We call these recipes “magic” because we (the girls at FFR) have all had it at one point or another with GREAT results. We call it “magic soup” between us sisters so we are calling it “magic soup” on here!


Do I JUST eat this soup? All day, every day?
No. You still need to get some calories in (about 1,000) to lose weight at a healthy rate.


How do I use this soup to lose weight?
We suggest eating a healthy breakfast and then having the soup for lunch and dinner with some healthy sides. If you are hungry and need a snack—make it into a smoothie (see recipe above)! It is a low-calorie snack that is also filling. Also, you need to exercise and stay hydrated! Drink lots of water and exercise at least 30 min/3-5 days a week.


I need details! I want to lose weight QUICKLY and HEALTHILY… can you just tell me EXACTLY what to eat? I need a plan!
You are in luck! We are currently working with a nutritionist to do just that! We will have meal plans, shopping lists, exercise ideas… everything you will need to help you maximize your weight loss. Join us on Facebook for updates!


Will I gain all my weight back afterwards?
We recommend only doing this for 7 days… think of it as a positive kick-off to your diet, a way to shed some pounds and gain some confidence before you start your lifestyle change. Keep exercising, keep hydrated, keep portion control.. and feel free to have this soup/smoothie on hand to have as a snack if you are feeling hungry! If you want to lose weight and keep it off, the best thing you can do is make a life-style change.


Is there a low-sodium alternative I can use instead of V8?
Absolutely! You can use low-sodium V8, fresh or store-bought tomato juice. You can also use fresh veggies (instead of the canned) or low-sodium broths to reduce sodium as well.


I don’t like [insert vegetable name here]. What is a good substitute?
You can substitute any vegetable really… just try to avoid starchy ones like potatoes, peas, and corn if you can. Some really good substitutions are kale, spinach, and celery.


That is a lot of vegetables… am I going to be, you know, running to the bathroom a lot?
If this is something you are worried about, or if you find yourself hitting up the bathroom too much for your liking, eat the soup along with some whole-wheat toast, brown rice, or even a banana. That should help!


This soup looks delish! What if I’m not trying to lose weight… can I still eat this?
ABSOLUTELY!!! This is still a delicious, healthy soup and it is a great way to get in your daily vegetables.

How many stars would you give this recipe?


  1. Fantastic website you have here but I was curious about if you knew of
    any community forums that cover the same topics discussed
    in this article? I’d really love to be a part
    of community where I can get advice from other experienced people that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you!

      1. Thank you! I didn’t think it would hurt. I did have this combination last night and Yes the scale still moved down. : )

        Gluten free popcorn. Brown bag, popped in the microwave. Sprinkled with real unsalted butter.

  2. both the soup and the smoothie doe not give nutritional values like it has said..I am diabetic and need the carb count any way you can give both on it?

    1. I just found this and am making it right now! I don’t think it would be difficult to do a little of your own homework and look up Carbs for each ingredient, since Favorite Family Recipes so graciously gave you the whole recipe. Just saying. It’s not a whole lot of ingredients.

    2. Try entering the recipe onto “my fitness pal” once it is logged in, it will give you all the nutrients and caloric amounts you need. Both for dieting and health issues. My daughter in law uses the app to help her control her diabetes, she says it’s done more to keep her on track than anything she has ever used. The soup is amazing, but you have to make adjustments according to your health. If you’re not getting the carbs you need, add a small side of cornbread. Or something appropriate.

  3. Due to a very serious back injury, multiple surgeries, and now meds, I have gained close to 170 lbs. I do not exercise like everyone else. I have also been on a diet for 2 years. I think my diet is keeping me from gaining anymore weight. Since I take Morphine and Norco, and have been for 5 yeasts, will this stuff work? I have to eat high protein and high fiber just so I can go oncea week if I’m lucky. Would this change my dysfunction? I hear certain lentils are high in fiber and protein. Would that be a good or bad addition? I can’t wait to try this.

      1. Low carb = low cal. That’s why it works. Plain and simple. When you rmovee one whole macronutrient from your plate, you reduce your calories by approx 1/3rd. Was nothing to do with food type. You can lose weight eating pasta, or rice, or yams. So long as you run a calorie deficit. I eat lean protein, carbs, fat. I just eat less and I exercise more. I lost 30 lbs in 4 months and kept it off 2 yrs now. Eat from smaller plates. Ur eyes see a full plate, but ur eating less. Go walking too

    1. I have the same dilemma. …..chronic asthma w/ massive doses of steroids. ..and I have blown up from 120 to 180 …..unable to exercise properly….3 hip surgeries…2 replacements…a back fusion….andall due to avascular necrosis. ….it’s horrible and embarrassing. …AND I have tortured myself by holding on to my size 6 and 8 clothes…..

      1. Find some form of exercise that you like and can do. Maybe swimming? Water lightens your weight, and you use water resistance to build muscle. This comes highly recommended by people who have painful joints, back and knee pain or even fibromyalgia. And little bits add up! If you can do 6 sets of 5 mins, you’ve met the 30 min goal over the day. I find this help with my fibromyalgia, as well as swimming and yoga.

  4. Do you have any suggestion’s on protien intake. I need to lose fat, but I also need to gain muscle. I know the difference in the loss, and gain of both. In the fact that if you lose fat, and gain muscle, the scale might say you have gained weight, but you are actually smaller. So I need to vonsume a fair amount of protien. Also what about fruit intake?

    1. Use the soup in the way that is best for your own diet. It is a great filler that is low in calories. If you need to be eating lots of protein, continue to do that! Use the soup as a low calorie option when you are feeling hungry.

  5. 5 stars
    Just what I was looking for!! I do have a question and I didn’t see it answered in the other comments. 🙂 I am carb cycling to lose weight. Would this be considered a low carb meal or high carb meal? Thank you so much!

  6. 5 stars
    I love this soup with all the veggies in it…I added a little cayenne pepper for a little kick…so good! I’m trying to lose weight, but I REALLY want to fix some cornbread to go with this! I guess I could do that, but have to be careful and not slather it with so much butter.

  7. I’m thinking possibly I missed this in the comments, but what size cans of broth and what size cans of V-8. I am going to grind/blend my own tomatoes and am going to purchase the broth. Thanks so much!!

    1. The can sizes are in the description above the recipe for the soup. All the cans are the regular (14 to 16 oz.) size. The v8 is 3 cups.
