Chilled Swedish Blueberry Soup
Chilled Swedish blueberry soup is a tasty soup best served for breakfast or as dessert. It’s a traditional recipe that’s commonly enjoyed throughout Scandinavia, especially in the fall during blueberry season.
Add the blueberries, water and maple syrup to a pot. Bring it to a boil, and leave the soup to simmer for 5-7 minutes.
Combine cornflour with 4 tbsp water in a small bowl, and slowly pour it into the soup while continuously stirring. The soup will thicken up fast.

Serve the soup chilled with cream, yogurt or ice cream.
*Instead of maple syrup, you can use any other sweetener like honey, agave syrup or date syrup.
