Seniors, Have you ever eaten cold fruit soups during hot summer days?

A couple of days ago we had some cold sour cherry soup, today we had for the first time cold gooseberry soup.
Both were very tasty and refreshing on these hot summer days when cooking hot meals is just too much effort.
have any of you ever tried cold fruit soups or do you have any recipes for hot summer meals?
Update: !, your soups sound good. These fruit soups are really easy to make and very refreshing in the heat. have to make sure all the pitts are removed from the cherries or you could bite into one. boil the fruit with a dash of salt, add sugar, cinnamon, a few cloves.( Half kilo of fruit to a quart of water.) When fruit... show more !, your soups sound good.

When fruit is soft enough mix about 1 tbs. of flour with a small amount of cream, sour cream or milk until not lumpy and add to the fruit, bring back to a boil then shut off and let cool, put in fridge until cold.
Some people also add an egg white when serving but we usually skip that.
We used cream and an egg yolk added into the gooseberry soup just after it was finished cooking and before cooling.
