Blackberry Lavender Dessert Soup

This Blackberry Lavender Dessert Soup is a delightful and refreshing summer dish.


If I ask what’s your favorite summer soup, you will probably name gazpacho. Or beetroot cold soup (especially if you live in Europe).

I see the problem here. That wasn’t a well-formulated question. What’s your favorite dessert kind of soup?

Are you surprised? Confused? I understand your confusion. The words “dessert” and “soup” together sound quite peculiar.

But the truth is that dessert soups exist! I totally agree that this name isn’t the most appealing. However, a dessert soup is a delicious, refreshing, and relatively light dessert. I would call it healthy unless you’ve put a lot of ice cream (which is not a bad thing to do). Also, a dessert soup can be a fancy treat. Need I say you’ll make it in no time?

As you understand, it’s s very versatile dessert. You can use any seasonal fruit and berries of your choice. You can incorporate coconut milk, greek yogurt, honey, nuts, chocolate, alcohol (yes, alcohol!), and many other things.


Why am I saying this? It’s much better to give a few examples.

This time I made this Blackberry Lavender Dessert Soup which was delightful. Lavender and blackberries (or blueberries) make one of my favorite combos. There’s a sad news, my friends. I currently run out of my favorite lavender extract (Are you shocked?) That’s why while making this Blackberry Lavender Dessert Soup, I pulled a bag of dried lavender. I opted for steeping the lavender in some…earl gray tea. That’s right. Lavender works beautifully with earl gray. Please stay tuned, and hopefully, I demonstrate this shortly. Well, if I can fight my laziness to day and get up to take some pictures. Wish me luck :)

6 Thoughts on “Blackberry Lavender Dessert Soup

  1. How do you come up with such unique and fantastic ideas, Ben? Blackberry and lavender dessert soup looks so dreamy and sounds fantastic. This is one of the prettiest dessert soups I have ever seen. You were so right, I was about to say beetroot cold soup. To be honest, I didn’t have many dessert soups, and this refreshing soup is definitely on my list before summer ends. Would love to make it with blueberries, do you think it would make a nice soup? Have a lovely week ahead. :D

  2. If this is a duplicate comment, I apologize!!! My computer is not my friend tonight. Anyway – I have not heard of dessert soup! I must confess that blackberries are my FAVOURITE of the berry family, so this soup must have been made for me. Love it!!

  3. I love how you add an herbaceous twist to things, Ben. And you’re right, I hadn’t heard of dessert soup – but if this is it, then sign me up! The combination of blackberry and lavender sounds divine!

  4. I had strawberry soup for dessert once and it was delicious, so I can imagine how great this is! I love the beautiful purple color :). Now if only I could go blackberry picking. . .I think it’s just to hot here, haha! Have a great week, Ben!

  5. OK Ben, this is the prettiest soup I’ve ever seen! I’ve only had dessert soup at fancy tasting dinners, but never made it at home before. Didn’t realize how easy they were to make, so I may have to make it for a romantic dinner at home one weekend. Happy Monday, my friend, and hope you have a wonderful week!

  6. I do remember your love for dessert soups…especially during the summer! And this one doesn’t disappoint, Ben. I love, love, love blackberries, and the hardest part of making this soup would be convincing me to part with fresh blackberries. Or perhaps using lavender. Haha…just kidding! I really should try making a dessert soup sometime. Such a fun idea for hot summer days! I hope you’re staying cool up there, my friend! And Happy Monday!
