Apple Soup Polonais
Apples are for eating out of hand, bobbing for at Halloween and adapting into a lo-cal cold soup from Poland.
It is a nice off white color,a bit frothy when poured and looks richer and creamier than it actually is.
It can be made with the buttermilk (listed)or low fat cottage cheese(whipped in a blender) OR it can also be made with low fat sour cream or low fat whipping cream for those who wish it to be as rich in content as it is in appearence.
This is a versatile soup served either as a appetizer or dessert
