Many recipes are for cold soups served when fruit is in season during warm weather. Some, like Norwegian fruktsuppe, may be served warm or cold, and rely on dried fruit, such as dried prunes, apricots and raisins, thus being able to be prepared in any season. Fruit soups may include milk or cream, sweet or savoury dumplings, spices, or alcoholic beverages, such as sweet wine, white wine, brandy or champagne.

Blåbärsoppa is a Swedish dish, that usually contains several kinds of berries (for example blueberries, bilberries, raspberries, strawberries and/or lingonberries), sugar, water and the optional cider or, less commonly nowadays, champagne. The berries, sugar and water are boiled together to make a soup, which is then allowed to cool. When it's cold, cider or champagne are added, which makes the soup fresher and slightly carbonated.
