Pretend Soup

This makes a delicious snack or lunch offering--especially in the winter when so many fresh fruits are not in season and expensive. The "soup" is cold, though, so save it for a warmer winter day! We used frozen berries with their juice in our soups in the picture; hence the swirly colors.

From Pretend Soup (see the cookbook itself for kid-friendly pictures/directions; this is an easy recipe for preschoolers to make for themselves)

  • 2 c. orange juice
  • 1/2 c. plain yogurt
  • 1 T. honey
  • 2 t. lemon juice
  • 1 c. berries (any kind, fresh or frozen; thaw frozen ones first and include the juices)
  • 1 banana, sliced
  1. Place the orange juice in a bowl. Add yogurt, honey, and lemon juice.
  2. Whisk "until it is all one color."
  3. Place 5 banana slices and 2 tablespoons berries in each bowl (~4 bowls).
  4. Ladle soup over berries and bananas and eat!
~about 4 servings
