Independence Day Fruit Soup Recipe


Looking for a quick, light dessert to serve on Independence Day (or any summer event, for that matter)? The Following Independence Day Fruit Soup is perfect to take on a picnic, or to a gathering where a potluck dessert is requested, or to serve at a backyard barbecue. It can be made up to a day ahead and kept in the refrigerator. This refreshing dessert can be served as is, or with cookies as an accompaniment.

Of course you can substitute raspberries for the strawberries; blackberries can be substituted for the blueberries the finished product will still be red, white, & blue. To save calories, light coconut milk can also be used with good results. If this is a dessert for an outdoor party or picnic, you can serve it in small paper cups; guests can either drink it or use a spoon.

2 cups fresh blueberries
4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
