Strawberry Soup

Strawberry Soup

An elegant dessert full of flavour—and so simple to prepare.

4 cups (1 L) cleaned, hulled, and sliced fresh strawberries (reserve 4 large berries for garnish)
2 Tbsp (30 mL) dry white wine or champagne
1/4 cup (60 mL) organic powdered sugar*
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 cups (500 mL) no-fat plain or vanilla yogourt

*If strawberries are sweet and ripe, the sugar may be decreased or left out.

Place all ingredients in bowl of blender or food processor and process until smooth. Taste and adjust sweetness by adding a little more sugar as required, or an additional splash of lemon juice.

Transfer to large bowl and chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours or until ready to serve.

Serve cold in chilled bowls or large chilled wine glasses. Garnish each serving with 1 sliced strawberry.

Serves 4.
