This sweet and creamy blueberry soup is a delightfully refreshing treat during the spring and summer months. 

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh blueberries

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

How to Make It

  1. Bring first 5 ingredients to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring often. Remove from heat, and slightly cool.
