Tart Cherry Soup

I spice up my sweet-tart soup with a hint of cinnamon. Serve this refreshing chilled concoction as a light first course...or for dessert, topped with a dollop of nonfat yogurt or reduced-fat whipped topping. —Neva Arthur, New Berlin, Wisconsin

    This recipe rates as a 5* recipe! I made this recipe 8/31/16 and I just substituted lemon juice for lime juice and the peel of a lemon! The result was delicious! What a refreshing fruit soup! To me, it was more like a beverage!delowenstein
