  20. Notes: Hot summer days call for light, refreshing meals. Fruit soups provide a nice way to cool off and only take about 10 minutes to prepare. If peaches aren't in season, try honeydew, plums, nectarines or berries. The wine and orange liqueur add zip to the creamy base, but you could easily substitute vanilla or almond extract if you're serving it to a teetotaling crowd. Fruit soups can play the role of appetizer or dessert. If you omit the alcohol, you could also add a little more yogurt and ricotta, put it in a glass with a straw and let the kids think this healthy treat is really a milkshake.
