This recipe uses plain yogurt not heavy cream so it's lower in fat and calories but it is still just as good. It is a very simple and refreshing soup.

This would be a 10 star. I make 1-2 times a week everyone loves it. I do not use any water use ginger instead of cardamom and use vanilla yogurt (yoplait is what we like). I double and it is gone in a few hours. Thank you for an awesome recipe. Read More

Okay at first with some sliced bananas in it but after a few spoonfulls - ugh! More of a drink texture than a soup w/out the bananas; maybe try blending the bananas in and cutting back on the water. Warning: This spice used (which I had never heard of) was only made by McCormick at our grocery store and costs almost 11 a bottle! Read More

Absolutely delightful. You might want to add extra yogurt though to give it a thicker consistency. Read More

My family loved this soup. I then took the remaining soup and froze it into popsicles. They're great as well! Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This was an excellent combination of flavors. I too made this into a smoothie and left out the water. I used frozen strawberries and half peach yogurt and 1/2 and 1/2 rather than plain yogurt. The cardamom added a nice touch..but did not over power the drink. I think the OJ is what made this sooo good. Excellent recipe. Thanks for sharing Michelle. Read More

4 stars as is 5 stars with these modifications: Substitute 1 cup heavy cream for 1 cup yogurt No water Also this is ready to eat immediately if you use moderately defrosted frozen strawberries. I did not have cardamom so substituted ground ginger which is closer to cardamom than cinamon. This is a wonderful treat especially when accompanied by Jasmine tea! Read More

YUMMY! So easy to make and tasted great. My kids just LOVED it!!! I used vanilla yogurt and substituted a bit of ginger and nutmeg for the cardamon (didn't have any). There were no leftovers! Read More
