I would like to find a recipe for a cold fruit soup that can have modifications according to what’s in the refrigerator. It would be great if it had a dairy ingredient and was still healthy. I’m not finding one that seems to do all of this. thanks for your help, as always. I love this site!
You might try this one.

Garnish with strips of lemon peel, if desired.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.
You could substitute non fat yogurt for the sour cream for a healthier soup.
Like liquid velvet!
I made the soup with strawberries and added vanilla in place of the cloves and cinnamon. I used the immersion blender, then added some whole fruit for interest, The texture was just what I was looking for and the sour cream just enough. We floated 100 calorie pack shortbread cookies because every creamy soup needs “croutons”. This was great and I can’t wait to try peaches next. Thanks so much!
