"You can substitute raspberries, cantaloupe, honey dew melon, or even nectarines for the strawberries. What ever you feel like. Be hesitant of using blueberries, they just never seem to turn out." — Elissa

I was trying to find a delicious low-fat fruit soup, and this is it!! It tastes unbelievable. I made it in the food processor by the pitcher full, and lived off it this past summer. I made it with fresh raspberries (strain it through a seive) and frozen sweetened strawberries (omit sugar). Soooo good!
This was ok. I made it with strawberries that were kind of old and a buttermilk mix. I think the buttermilk was too strong and it wasn't thick enough. Next time I think I will try and make it with heavy cream instead of buttermilk.
I've used this for strawberries and raspberries and cantaloupe, so far. Used with sugar and with Splenda. Mixed raspberry and blackberry is next, then nectarines when they get a little cheaper. Really good soup and so easy to make!! Just can't go wrong.
My 12 year old made this recipe. He added a packet of Splenda along with the sugar. Very different soup but enjoyed by the family.
It is an interesting soup/drink, not too bad. The buttermilk is strong though and makes it very rich.
I used frozen unsweetened strawberries, slightly thawed, with lowfat buttermilk in the proportions given in the recipe and sweetened it with Splenda. It made a great strawberry shake that was diet friendly. I can't wait to try it with other fruit. Leftovers, in the unlikely event that we'd ever have any, would be refrigerated and used as soup later. Thanks for the great, wonderfully simple idea!
did not like this. kids wouldn't eat/drink it either. followed recipe exact. oh well- good to try.
I really liked this, but my family commented that it was more like a drink than soup.
