Reviews for Cool Raspberry Soup
"I only gave this 4 stars because I didn't make the recipe as written. I had a frozen mixed berry blend (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries) that I used instead of just raspberries. In place of the raspberry yogurt, I used a plain Greek yogurt, and a mixed berry juice blend instead of cran-raspberry; I also omitted the wine. I made the substitutions based on what I had on hand. Having said that, it was really good! I would choose to omit the cloves next time and only use cinnamon sticks because we felt it overpowered the fresh fruit flavor. I will surely keep this recipe for another hot day meal!"
"I have made this several times thoughout the years, and was surprised no reviews! Very refreshing and different. I have made it for luncheons with the ladies and/or showers I have hostessed at my house. Always a crowd pleaser and the recipe is requested often!"
