Hi everyone…I’m back! It’s been a flurry of activity around here for the past month…end of senior year festivities followed by graduation and all the celebrations. Whew! It was exhausting, and I have sooo much to share.
All in due time, though…
Yesterday marked the first day of summer, and one of my favorite summertime activities is strawberry picking with my daughters. We picked over 25 pounds of strawberries last week! You know what that means…baking time!
While I enjoy baking breads and pies, this recipe for strawberry soup is a bit different. A friend of mine served it at a dinner party several years ago, and she was kind enough to share the recipe with me.
- 4 cups fresh strawberries (sliced)
- 1/3 cup ginger ale
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup sour cream
Place the strawberries in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
Add the ginger ale, sugar, milk, lemon juice, and vanilla. Blend all ingredients together.
Pour the mixture into a mixing bowl and whisk in the sour cream until smooth.
Cover and chill for 2 hours before serving. Add a few sliced strawberries for garnish!
Simple enough, right?
It is so tasty and refreshing on a hot summer day…and I think we have more of those ahead of us!
