I've been a fan of chilled soups since I first went on a cruise. That cruise was through the Panama Canal and was delightful. Chilled fruit soup for dinner every night. As one of the five courses naturally.
Unfortunately, cruise soups aren't necessarily all that healthy. And you would think they would be, given that they are made of fruit.
This one, however, has been lightened, and has a bit of zip added to it with the addition of a jalapeno (or two). And - it is super quick and easy to make.
Chilled Raspberry and Chile Soup
- 4 cups raspberries
- 1 banana
- 1 - 2 jalapenos, depending on how hot you like it
- 12 ounces of fat free vanilla yogurt
- 1 cup of fat free milk
Peel and slice banana. Cut the jalapeno into pieces. Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and process until smooth.
Chill for at least 4 hours. Serve.
And that's it! Delicious and refreshing, with a bit of a kick. Be sure to do a taste test before serving to guests. (At least guests that you don't want to light on fire.) You'll feel like you are on a cruise, but you won't see it on the scale tomorrow!
