Soup of Berries

13 Aug

Serves 6

Summertime and the livin is easy! This soup is a berries explosion and great to serve in the midst of summer. Berries are low in calories, high in fiber and contain lots of vitamins. Now is the time to buy fresh berries or to pick-your-own in the garden or on berry farms. If you can’t buy the berries fresh at this time of year on your side of the continent, check-out the frozen section of the grocery store as a good alternative.


150gr/ 1 cup Blackberries

150gr/ 1 cup Raspberries

200gr/ 1 cup Strawberries

250ml/ 1 cup Red Fruit Juice of your choice

250ml/ 1 cup Vanilla Yoghurt (organic low fat)


Wash the berries thoroughly and purée in your blender. Add the red fruit juice and the vanilla yoghurt and turn on the blender for one more minute.

Pass the mixture of berries, juice and yoghurt through a sieve to remove the hard bits. Discard the hard bits that remain in the sieve. Chill the soup  of berries for a minimum of 2 hours before serving. This soup is perfect to make a day in advance and can be stored in the refrigerator up to 3 days.

Chocolate Soup

11 May

 Serves 6

For all those chocoholics out there, indulge yourself with this ultimate Chocolate Dessert. This soup will wow your dinner party guests and will satisfy your chocolate cravings. Not exactly low in calories but a small serving of dark and preferable organic chocolate, is actually good for you. It is full of antioxidants, which help protect the body from aging, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart disease.  Have I convinced you yet?


250ml of Water

100 ml of Whipping Cream

1 tbsp. of Sugar

2 tbsp. of (organic) Cocoa Powder, sifted

100g of (organic) Dark Chocolate 60% – 70%


Fresh Red Fruit such as Blueberries, Raspberries, Strawberries.

Roasted Flaked Almonds


1 tsp. of Crème de Cassis


This soup will be ready to serve within 10 minutes and has to be served immediately. Therefore please start with roasting the flaked almonds and preparing the fruit for the garnish.

To make sure the chocolate doesn’t burn, I make this soup bain marie. Place a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. The base of the bowl should sit above the water without touching it.

Add the water, whipping cream, sugar and cocoa powder to the heatproof bowl. Whisk it together for 3 to 5 minutes.

Break the chocolate in pieces and add to the mixture. Keep stirring and allow the chocolate to melt so that it is smooth and shiny. Once dissolved stir in the teaspoon of Crème de Cassis and pour into a small coffee cup/espresso cup.

Garnish with fresh red fruit of your choice and roasted flaked almonds. Sprinkle some powdered sugar on top and serve immediately.
