Chilled Cranberry Spice Soup

Ah the short days with early darkness. They need a color lift.

A splash of pink in the middle of the winter.

A fresh and bright cranberry yogurt soup with a hint of spice to keep with the holiday spirit. Just what a winter table might need.

As I was revisiting my old candle pictures, the need to light a new one came about. I found out that a dear friend passed away early last month. Dear Bob, if you are reading my blog from whichever dimension you’re in please know that you are loved and missed. Peace, light and much love to your soul.

My thoughts and prayers also go to the victims of the Connecticut tragedy. So very sad.




Total Time: 10 min


2 cups fresh cranberries
2 cups Greek yogurt
2 cups milk or half and half
2 apples, cored, peeled and chopped
¼ cup orange or apple juice
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice


Puree all the ingredients in a blender or food processor for 2 minutes or until very smooth. Pass the soup through a sieve a couple of times.

Refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving.

    How different! How interesting! Love the usage of the pumpkin spice and shall definitely try! And how desperately sad about the Newtown tragedy! Many of my US friends find our stringent gun laws strange and against their democratic feelings: I do not agree – yes, it sometimes happens here . . . but, oh so rarely . . . .

    Looks so tempting. Can I use craisins instead?

    Lynn, I haven’t tried it with craisins. Perhaps pre-soaked ones would work. Would be fun to try.
