Amazing. Looks impressive, yet so easy. Can be an appetizer, dessert, or even breakfast. Defrosted frozen berries actually are better to use than fresh here because of the their beautiful swirly juices. You can make the soup ahead and then combine just before serving with the berries and mint.
Prep Time: 10-15 Minutes
Modified from Mollie Katzen’s Moosewood Cookbook
3 C orange juice
3 C buttermilk or yogurt
1-2 T fresh lime or lemon juice
1-2 T sugar or honey (I use it!)
2-3 C frozen defrosted or fresh of any kind or combination. Larger berries should be sliced.
Optional: Pinch of cinnamon, to taste
Optional: Pinch of nutmeg, to taste
A handful of fresh mint, minced
1) Whisk (or stir) together orange juice and buttermilk or yogurt. Add lemon or lime juice and optional sugar or honey (or not), and cinnamon and nutmeg, to taste. Cover and chill until serving time.
2) To serve, place about ½ c berries in each bowl and ladle soup on top. Make pleasing swirls. Garnish with mint.
