Cold Cherry Soup
package pitted cherries (around 1&1/2 cups)
fresh or frozen
adjust according to how sweet/sour your cherries are
red colored jell-o
eg. strawberry or punch
use soy or almond if keeping dairy-free
In a pot, put the cherries, sugar (start with less and add more later if needed), vanilla extract, water, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil.
Mix the jello with a little water until smooth and pour into the soup and bring to a boil again.
Turn off the flame and once soup cools add in the milk. The soup will look a little piecey because of the jello but it tastes great!
Refrigerate and serve chilled with mint as garnish.
