Chilled Summer Strawberry Coconut Soup

2 Comments

The arrival of mid-July means that humid and hazy days have once again become the norm. Cool off with a bowl of Strawberry Coconut soup! It’s so luxuriously delicious that it could almost be served as a dessert. This recipe is healthy and excellent way to use those ripe and juicy strawberries you just purchased from your local Farmer’s Market! As an added bonus, you’ll only need 5 minutes and a blender on hand to prepare. Simply add all the ingredients listed below in your blender and your soup is practically finished! Depending on how thick or thin you prefer your soup, blend in extra yogurt to add thickness to the soup or more orange juice to make thin it out a bit. The soup can be served immediately after it is blended set it in the fridge for about 2 hours to chill. Enjoy and happy cooking!

    Put me in a room full of strawberries and avocados and you may not see me ever again. No, seriously. When someone tells they don’t like guacamole or strawberries, I give them a look as if they were from Pluto. Anyway, this recipe I love because of it’s unavoidable summer vibe. Who wants a chilled soup in the winter anyway? It’s definitely not what i reach for in the midst of a blizzard. So, eat it while it’s hot (outside that is) and don’t forget to top it all off with a little whipped cream.
