Think soup for dessert! This is a very refreshing end to a meal, and can be made completely light and fat-free by substituting a cup of strained yogurt (let it drain for a few hours in a coffee filter) instead of the heavy cream.

For the sauce, combine the orange juice, ginger and honey in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook until reduced by 1/2.

To prepare the soup, purée the berries in a food processor. Add the cream, yogurt, honey, orange juice and orange-ginger sauce. Purée again, pass through a strainer and chill.

Garnish with a drizzle of cream or crème fraîche and a few fresh berries.

YIELD: 6 servings.
