Watermelon-Strawberry Koldskaal

Sometime back, I found a recipe on one of the blogs I was following for "koldskaal."
I was intrigued. Evidently, this is a traditional Danish dish that usually is made of buttermilk and other ingredients, and is eaten a kind of cold sweet soup during the summer.

Today was hot, and I decided to try my hand at making my own version of koldskaal from what I had in the fridge.
It was very simple: Watermelon. Milk. Yogurt. Strawberries. Dates. Egg.

It was amazing! It was light and frothy and sweet (without sugar!) and very filling. One bowl was plenty for me. I will definitely be making this again.

The inclusion of a raw egg might be a deal-breaker for some, but I figured... I eat raw cookie dough like there's no tomorrow, and that has raw egg in it... why not? It actually made this soup really frothy and creamy, and probably helped to make it so filling. But hey, if it's a deal-breaker for you, just leave it out. I won't tell.

Watermelon-Strawberry Koldskaal (print recipe)
