Mixed Berry Tea Sangria
Brew 1 bag of black cherry-berry herbal tea or blueberry herbal tea with 8 ounces of boiling water for 5 minutes. Remove bag. Stir in 1 tablespoon sugar or 1 tablespoon blueberry syrup (like Stonewall Kitchen Wild Maine Blueberry syrup, $12; cooking.com). Allow tea to cool to room temperature. Fill a tall glass with ice. Add 1/4 cup raspberries, 1/4 cup blueberries, 1/4 cup sliced strawberries. Pour tea into glass and garnish with mint. Serves 1. Per glass: 98 calories, <1 gram fat

Honey Strawberry Soup
In a medium saucepan combine 6 cups hulled and halved strawberries, 1 cup blueberry juice, and 2 tablespoons honey. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 3 to 5 minutes or until berries are just tender. Set aside to cool. Remove strawberries with a slotted spoon and place in a food processor. Pulse 3 to 5 seconds or until puréed. Add cooled liquid and pulse to combine. Divide soup into 4 bowls and top each with a teaspoon of reduced-fat sour cream and more sliced strawberries if desired. Serves 4. Per 3/4 cup serving: 126 calories, <1 g fat
