Tomatosoupa: A Tomato Basil Soup Recipe with Greek Yogurt

This tomatosoupa is one of my favorite ones. Creamy, delicious, healthy, this soup also contains Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is not only a less fatty cream substitute but is also full of proteins. In addition to this, I usually use stevia instead of sugar. I get the same sweetness effect with fewer calories! You can enjoy tomato basil soup all year long. But, if you want to use fresh tomatoes and are after the maximum out of taste, wait until the end of August, beginning of September. During that period, tomatoes are ripe and juicy.
