This delicious cold berry soup is a traditional Dutch breakfast dish. The amounts and types of fruits can be varied. It's a very flexible recipe!
Altered ingredient amounts. My kids were lukewarm on this one, until I doubled the barley and added a couple of pureed bananas! Now, the entire family enjoys this for breakfast. Thanks for sharing it! - 08 Oct 2008
I'm rating this a 5 for its great potential, not becuase it was at all what I expected it to be. "Soup" is very misleading. I think I will make this often and use it to serve with non-fat yoghurt, which will make a great snack, breakfast or even a lunch. Right now I am eating it for lunch with greek yogurt and a cut up banana. Yum! It's very sweet and very thick -- I don't think I would eat it alone. Also, for all you first-time makers: be assured that it thickens up A LOT as it is chilling -- you do not have to get it completely thickened by cooking it (you will be cooking forever if you try). All in all, I'm very pleased with a healthy and tasty alternative, thank you for giving me something that I would never have discovered otherwise! - 08 Oct 2008
No matter what fruit you use it is great and if you use less water its great with jelly or ice cream - 08 Oct 2008
