Weekend Fare: Strawberry Soup

When I first learned about chilled, fruit soups, I was not inclined to give them a try. It was just too weird. However, my opinion has changed! They can be a delicious addition to brunch, a wonderful appetizer, or even a light dessert. I think this recipe would be perfect served in shooter glasses as an appetizer at a garden party. It's also super easy and great for weekend cooking!

1 lb. strawberries, cleaned and hulled
3/4 c. half & half or cream
 3/4 c. sour cream or plain yogurt
1/4 c. sugar
4 tsp. lemon juice

Blend the strawberries until pureed. Pour into a bowl and stir in the half & half, sour cream, sugar and lemon juice. Chill until serving. Top with fresh mint or strawberries if desired. Serves 4.


  1. The idea of cold "summer" soups is still so foreign to me! I think I have a better time accepting them thinking of them as smoothies in a cup hehehe : P

  2. this sounds surprisingly good. but definitely seems more like a desert type thing. i may have to give this a shot.:)

  3. One of my favorite soups is cold watermelon soup! This looks delicious as well.

  4. Chilled strawberry soup sounds really weird but it looks amazing!! Thanks for the ingenious idea.. I've really never come across anything like this before although I did make a chilled avocado soup and that was just delicious!! :-D
