Cold Summer Fruit Soup

1 ripe cantaloupe, peeled and chopped
3 to 4 ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
1 to 2 bananas
1 pint strawberries
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 to 3 cups yogurt (vanilla or peach)
Sprigs of fresh mint
1 kiwi

Combine cantaloupe, peaches, banana, and orange juice in a blender or food processor. Process until pureed. Add yogurt. Blend until smooth. Keep chilled. Pour into soup bowls when ready to serve. Top with a dollop of yogurt, a peach slice, a kiwi slice, and a sprig of mint.

Variations: Recipe can be adjusted to use any combination of fresh fruits in season. Try vanilla flavoring instead of almond extract, or replace the peach yogurt with berry yogurt.

Serves 6 to 8
