Last June, I immersed myself in my first ever blogger conference – ALT 2014 in Salt Lake City, Utah. I was just a newbie blogger of a couple months and was inspired and overwhelmed at the volumes of information, people, and talent swarming all around me.
You might think my most cherished memory of Salt Lake City would be soaking up the wisdom of keynote speaker, Martha Stewart, but my favorite experience of it all was discovering soothing, calming, refreshing Strawberry Soup – culinary changing.
Strawberry Soup is the ideal refreshment on a hot summer day. It is fabulous outdoors at a barbecue, potluck, poolside party or beach. It is also fabulous indoors at a birthday, baby or bridal shower or simply an after school or dinner delight.
What Does Strawberry Soup Taste Like?
This Strawberry Soup recipe is sweet, silky, creamy and just begs to be eaten in one sitting of seconds and thirds.
It tastes of sweet strawberries with a hint of coconut all balanced by citrus in the form of orange and lemon juice. It gets a little zing from ground ginger and cinnamon to enliven the palate.
You can slurp this Strawberry Soup as a side to a sandwich, salad etc. but it is more like a dessert soup because of its subtle sweetness. But just make sure you devour it – soon – however you see fit.
Ingredients for Strawberry Soup
- vanilla yogurt
- orange juice
- lemon juice
- coconut cream
- ground ginger
- ground cinnamon
The coconut cream is the cream that rises to the top of the coconut can. It boasts a concentrated coconut flavor that is sublime in this Strawberry Soup. You can use 1/3-½ cream depending on how much cream is in the can. I like to refrigerate the can of coconut milk for at least 24 hours then it is easy to scoop the cream off the top after it separates.
How to Make Healthy Strawberry Soup
The coconut cream adds the creamy coconut flavor but if you want to go for an almost nonfat soup, you can eliminate the coconut cream and add a little extra vanilla yogurt to add some of the creaminess back in. If you would still like the coconut flavor, then try adding a little coconut extract.
Can I use Frozen Strawberries?
I do not recommend frozen strawberries for Strawberry Soup because then you will get the consistency of a smoothie. You may use frozen strawberries, however, if you defrost them first.
Can I use Other Fruit?
If you want strawberries to remain the dominant flavor, then I suggest sticking with the Strawberry Soup recipe as written. If you abandon expectations of strawberry flavor, then feel free to add some other berries, pineapple, mangos, etc.
Is Strawberry Soup Gluten Free?
Yes! Strawberry Soup makes a fabulous option for entertaining because it is safe – and delicious – to be eaten by all your gluten-free friends!
How to Make Strawberry Soup
This refreshing Strawberry Soup is a quick and easy blend (literally) of fresh strawberries, vanilla yogurt, orange juice, coconut cream, and sugar enlivened by a touch of vanilla, ginger and cinnamon.
How do I make my Soup Thinner?
For a thinner soup, add more orange juice with another pinch of sugar as needed or you can thin with milk.
How do I make my Soup Thicker?
After all the ingredients are blended and you would like a thicker soup, add more yogurt. Take care not to blend too much once all the ingredients are incorporated or the blender were virtually liquefy the soup instead of leaving us with creamy body.
How to Serve Strawberry Soup
You may serve this Strawberry Soup immediately but it is far better if allowed to chill for two hours in the refrigerator. Before serving, taste and add additional sugar if desired as the sugar tends to mellow after being refrigerated. Strawberry Syrup is stand-alone-delicious, or add a dollop of whipped cream or yogurt and garnish with fresh strawberries or chopped fresh fruit for presentation. A little garnish of mint is also delectable.
How long with Strawberry Soup Last?
Strawberry Soup Should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. When properly stored, it is good for 3-5 days.
CAN I Make Strawberry Soup Ahead of Time?
Yes, please do! Strawberry Soup, as previously discussed, tastes far superior if chilled. You can make the Strawberry Soup up to three days ahead of time.
What to Serve with Strawberry Soup?
Strawberry Soup can be served as a starter, dessert or side alongside any of your favorite meals. It pairs especially well with American favorites:
