Strawberry Soup (Sopa de Fresa)

Strawberry SoupOne of the things I love most about spring and summer is the fresh fruits and vegetables available. Strawberries are definitely one of my favorite fruits. When I was growing up in Colombia, I loved to go out of the city with my family on weekends, stopping at fruit stands on the side of the country roads where we would find some of the most beautiful fresh fruit. The fruit stands served “fresas con cream” or strawberries with fresh heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk. They are absolutely delicious!

This strawberry soup was inspired by that fantastic and simple Colombian dessert. Enjoy!

    I love the sound of this. Sweetened condensed milk and cream?? Yum!! We once had a passionfruit and mango cold soup and my husband loved it. I have some strawberries in the fridge. I’ll have to see if I have some sweetened condensed milk. I’d love to try this. It looks great : )

    I am enjoying this abundance of summer.. living on fruits and berries almost! This looks awesome, esp the hint of cinnamon.

    Oh that looks incredibly delicious! When I read soup I was thinking about something similar to gazpacho, but I see this is a dessert, which makes it even better :-p
