Strawberry Soup

When my mom was here I decided on a light meal that would require little cooking. I made ham biscuits, strawberry soup and baked beans. After finding I had purchased more then I needed for the soup I made an extra batch and took it to a friend. She loved it, along with another friend who was visiting. So I promised I would post the recipe I got from life:beautiful magazine.

Strawberry Soup

1 quart (1 pound) fresh strawberries
2 cups half and half
1/3 cup granulated sugar (I used splenda)
1/4 cup sour cream

Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Cover and process until very smooth. Garnish individual servings with a mint spring.

The magazine also had other cold soups. I made the two-melon soup and got rave reviews on that also. Next I will try their chilled green apple soup.

This was so easy to make, little clean up and was very refreshing.

Fruit soup? Is it a dessert?
The strawberry crop here is very late this year because our weather has been so cold this spring. The farmers are saying it'll be at least two more weeks.
Happy Father's Day, Rich.

Thank you, Rita. I'm looking forward to it. We're going out to dinner tonight in celebration of Father's Day and Kim's birthday - a nice two-for-one deal.

The strawberry soup was amazing and it really is a dinner soup - not a dessert, although it could probably be served as a dessert since it is so tasty. It's wonderfully creamy. My wife is the best cook ever! (Is cook the right word when it's cold soup?)
