Fruit soups are a sweet and refreshing dessert, great for cooling down in the summer. Check out these tasty ideas to satisfy your appetite and excite your tastebuds.

Fruit soups are super easy to make, they only contain a few ingredients and can be made vegan by using dairy-free ingredients. If you make these recipes during the summer, you can use seasonal fruit. That’s a lot better for the environment than using fruit when out of season, which needs a lot of energy to grow using artificial lighting, or it may be imported, giving it a huge carbon footprint. So seasonal fruit soups in the summer are a great way to reduce your carbon footprint.

Most of these recipes are made using a blender to make them smooth. The final recipe, Indonesian ‘es buah’, or ‘ice fruit’, uses sliced fruit pieces, ice, and sweetened condensed milk, giving it a chunkier consistency than the other soups.

Go ahead and give these sweet soup recipes a try.
