Lighter Loaded Baked Potato Soup is the answer to your prayers if you’ve been avoiding one of your favorites thinking it’s a calorie bomb. You know because #fitnessgoals. You can enjoy this one relatively guilt free thanks to no heavy cream and 2% milk instead of whole. I find that you can cut back to 2% and not lose the creamy texture. I would strongly recommend against using any lower fat on the milk. At under 300 calories for a 1.5 cup serving, this potato soup has a place in your healthy eating life. How exciting is that?
I give you instructions below for the Instant Pot , pressure cooker and stove top. The only real difference in all of these is that on the stove top instead of pressure cooking the potatoes, you’ll be bringing them to a low boil and cooking them until fork tender. All the saute instructions are still the same. I decided to ensure that everyone knows that even if you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can cook this with a stove top pressure cooker. The Instant Pot is great because it can replace your rice cooker, slow cooker and pressure cooker, but with these individual appliances you can achieve the same result.
I was reading comments on another blogger’s Instant Pot Recipe and this person was in a tirade in the comments telling people the Instant Pot is a name brand and not to be sheep and purchase one. I love mine, but yes there are other brands and the traditional pressure cooker, slow cooker, and rice cooker can do the things the Instant Pot does. However, if you’re like me, and you hate clutter, the Instant Pot or a comparable product will serve you well. I’ve removed 3 appliances for 1. 🙂
I really hope you make this Lighter Loaded Baked Potato Soup. It’s flavorful and it won’t set you back on those #fitnessgoals 😉
