Raspberry Peach Soup
Summer just wouldn't be complete without delicious summer desserts and treats! If you love snacks that are fast and easy to make than this recipe is for you. It's perfect for summer parties and get-togethers. Just make it the night before, stick it in the fridge, and the next day you're ready to go with a chilled, sugary treat in hand. It's the perfect dessert for kids and adults, who have big sweet tooth's.
- 3/4 cups Water
- 3/4 cups Sugar
- 2 medium Peaches, peeled & sliced
- 3 cups Raspberries
- 1 tbsp. Cornstarch
- 2 tbsp. Water
- 2 tbsp Lemon Juice
- 1 tbsp Clear Fruit Brandy, (We used regular)
- Dollop Whipped Cream, Cool Whip
- Measure all of your ingredients before you do anything. The boiling process is very fast so you need to be prepared for what comes next. Rinse your peaches, peel them with a potato peeler and then slice them. Rinse your raspberries and put them in a bowl. Also mix your 2 tbsp of water with the 1 tbsp cornstarch and set aside.
- In a saucepan combine water and sugar. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar is completely dissolved.
- Add the peaches and simmer gently for 2 minutes. (Instead of turning down the heat, I just held the pan above the burner so it didn't boil and it just simmered.)
- Stir in raspberries and bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute.
- Blend in your cornstarch and water mixture; bring to a boil once again, stirring until thickened.
- Remove your pan from the heat and stir in lemon juice and brandy.
- Serve hot or refrigerate overnight. If you refrigerate it, just add a dollop of whipped cream/cool whip over each serving. Enjoy!(:

If you don't like raspberries and/or peaches, don't worry! You can make this with any fruits you like. A combination I love is strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries. I also plan on trying apples and strawberries. If you plan on substituting fruits, don't worry about measurements, I just make sure that they all add up to almost 3 cups. It turns out delicious every time!
Note: If you don't know how to cook with apples or what apples are good for cooking, check out this wonderful hub for some helpful tips!
This soup is perfect for a hot summer day if you have a sweet tooth for sweet treats. This recipe is full of sugar so if you don't have a major sweet tooth I'd recommend eating very little amounts at a time. But for those of you who love sweets, dig in! And don't forget the whipped cream!(:
