Strawberry Soup - Appetizer or Dessert

While cold fruit soup is traditionally served as a first course,
it also makes for a wonderful dessert as it is
light and refreshing.

I first had this soup at a church luncheon years
ago and just had to have the recipe.  My neighbor
Sally willingly shared the recipe.  I love people who
share their recipes, obviously as bloggers, we are always
sharing ours.

Strawberry Soup Recipe

24 oz. sweetened frozen strawberries, thawed
2 C. sour cream
1 1/3 C. cold water
2 T. lemon juice

In a blender or food processor puree the thawed strawberries
until smooth.  Add the sour cream and blend it in.  Place
the mixture into a large bowl and stir in the water and lemon
juice.  Serve cold.  Garnish with whipped cream and
fresh strawberries if desired.

(Serve it with or without whipped cream as a garnish.)

(This is how I served it the other day for a luncheon.)

The first time I made Strawberry Soup was when I
was visiting my sister Jean in California and I made
it as an appetizer for her family.  I think I rose to favorite
aunt status that day (at least for a little while!)  It has been
a family favorite since then - so glad I asked for the recipe!

I will be posting this with


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. This sounds delicious. Several years ago I went on a Hawaiian cruise. We were served cold banana soup at one of the dinners. It was amazing. I have never been able to find a recipe that tastes similar.

  2. This looks like such an elegant dish and so delicious sounding too. Thanks for linking this up at Sweets for a Saturday.

  3. Just beautiful, never had a fruit soup Jacqueline, it sounds great:@)

  4. That looks delicious! I think I would have to have seconds! I love strawberries, who doesn't, and I can only imagine how wonderful it is!

  5. This sounds like a soup I had at Grove Park Inn for brunch. Looks just as good too!

  6. So chic! What a unique idea you've shared with us.

  9. What a great way to serve strawberries! My kids just love strawberries! I am getting some this weekend since there is an awesome sale on them at Meijer's. I do believe we will be trying this this week! Thanks for sharing!

  10. I've heard of this soup, but never seen it nor tried it before. It looks so pretty and refreshing. No wonder you got on Favorite Aunt status for that one.

    As far as people not sharing their recipes, when they don't do that, I tend to question if they were the one who actually made the food!

  11. now that is the perfect pink ... looks delicious too. thank you for sharing and happy pink Saturday!
