Tips on Making Fruit Soup

This festive dish deserves a spot on your holiday soup recipes. Here’s how you can perfect it at home:

  • If you have fruits at peak ripeness and are just about to go overripe, this is a great way to utilize them. The fruits don’t need to have the best skin or texture. As long as they’re sweet, you can use them.
  • If you want to add other fruits, use juicy summer fruits like peaches, watermelon, and pineapple. 
  • Add other sinkers to the chilled soup like mandarin orange wedges, grapes, nata de coco, melon balls, pomegranate seeds, or whatever fruits you like.
  • If you want to make it healthier, feel free to switch the sugar with maple syrup, honey, stevia, or Splenda.

You can serve this fruity dessert soup at your Christmas eve dinner, picnics, or on a breakfast date to go with souffle pancakes. Let’s get to making it.

Commonly Asked Questions

Is fruit soup a thick soup?

Fruit soup is thicker than fruit juice, but not as thick as pudding. However, you can make it as thick or as loose as you like. If it’s too thick, just add more orange juice to the mix to thin it out.

Can I freeze fruity soup?

Yes, you can make it ahead, freeze it, and thaw before serving and it’ll be fine as this recipe uses tapioca starch. Tapioca starch is a freezer-stable thickener. It will not break or change texture when frozen.
