  3. Whisk in the FAGE Total (off the heat) and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Ladle the soup into bowls and drizzle each with some of the Cinnamon-FAGE Total Crèma.
  5. Garnish with pumpkin seeds and cilantro leaves.
  6. Cinnamon-FAGE Total Crèma: Whisk together the FAGE Total, cinnamon, honey and splash of water and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours to allow the flavors to meld.
