Cold Berry Soup

I know that Cold Berry Soup sounds weird, but I love it.  I think it is sort of like a smoothie with lots of chunky berries to eat.  My friends loved it when they came over for my cooking and slumber party. 

Ingredients Needed:                        Equipment Needed:


4 cups fresh berries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, or a mix)

1/2 cup sugar

2 tablespoons honey

3 cups buttermilk

1 dash ground cinnamon

1 dash ground nutmeg

3 cups orange juice


Food Processor with the steel blade

Measuring Spoons and Measuring Cups

Rubber Scraper

Large bowl to chill the soup

Plastic wrap to cover the soup

How to Make Cold Berry Soup

Place the berries in the food processor.  Put on the lid and pulse until the berries are just starting to get chopped.  Pulse means to push the pulse button a few times; the processor will stop whenever the button isn't pushed, so you will be turning the processor on and off.  If you just turn it on, the berries will get chopped too much and you don't want that. Pour in the sugar.


Pour in the honey.  It's easier to measure the honey in a measuring cup like the one in the picture because you can push the bottom up and the honey will just fall into the processor.

Now pour in the buttermilk.  You can add some of the orange juice too, but all of it won't fit because the food processor isn't big enough to hold it all.  We can stir the rest of the orange juice in when we pour the finished soup into the bowl. Add the cinnamon and grate the nutmeg into the mixture.

Put the lid on the processor and pulse a few times until the ingredients are mixed.

Now you can pour the soup into a large bowl. Stir the rest of the orange juice into the mixture.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put it in the refrigerator. 

This soup is so good we had to taste it even before it was chilled!
