[ Recipe: Strawberry Soup Recipe ] ~ from Monterey Bay Herb Co
strawberry soup recipe

The combination of strawberry and basil is classic among herb-themed Popsicle recipes. Here, the inclusion of honey instead of sugar enhances sweetness without adding empty calories, while Greek yogurt provides a smooth, creamy texture. (Note: Most recipes call for a balsamic reduction, but you can achieve flavorful results with a good quality balsamic vinegar straight from the bottle.)

1 quart strawberries, rinsed
1 cup sugar
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
4-5 fresh mint leaves, minced
4 cups ice water
3/4 cup dry white wine

Place berries in a food processor and process for 1-2 minutes. Strain mixture through a sieve (reserve the liquid for another use). Combine the strawberry pulp, sugar, yogurt and mint in a large bowl. Stir in water and wine. Chill for 2-3 hours before serving.
