What do you do when you have a plethora of strawberries and Greek yogurt in the fridge? Make Strawberry Soup!
Chilled Strawberry Soup
makes about 7 cups
1 1/2 pounds fresh strawberries, cleaned and diced
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup plain Greek Yogurt
1 cup half and half
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Place diced strawberries in a large bowl and sprinkle with sugar; stir to coat.
At this point you can proceed with the recipe right away, but I usually allow the strawberries to macerate for about an hour until they exude their juice (don't discard the juice). Put everything in a blender (juice included) and puree until smooth.
Chill before serving.
Now for the design. This is how I made it. Sorry, no photos, but I’ll draw a diagram for you.
I used a squeeze bottle to add a circle of heavy cream to the top of my cold soup.
Then I swirled a toothpick through the cream in a circular pattern like this. In reality my swirls were much bigger - sorry, I can't draw to save my life, but you'll figure it out.
Voila! Now you try - prepare yourself for all the oooh and ahhhs.
