Scandinavian Fruit Soup! - #soupswappers

It is Saturday.  Just the sound of the word brings a smile...of course, when one is retired, everyday is Saturday!  Three cheers for Saturday!  This is the third Saturday of the month which means that today is Soup Saturday Swappers.  The Saturday Soup Swappers is a group of bloggers brought together by Wendy at A Day in the Life on the Farm. The group gets together on the third Saturday of the month to share soups or stews based on a theme selected by one of the members. If you are interested in joining in on the fun, follow the link above for more information. All are welcome!

Today I am sharing a fruit soup that is part of the Scandinavian cuisine.  They are usually made with stone fruits like peaches or cherries but in the winter, dried fruits are used.  Cream or some kind of dairy can also be added...so is a fruit soup like a smoothie only eaten with a spoon?  Yes, no, maybe!

Camilla at Culinary Adventures with Camilla selected this month's theme.  She stretched my mind with this one, but in a good way!  Thank you, Camilla, for challenging me this month!
