Guests at my garden theme party loved the flavor of this beautiful fruit soup, calling it elegant, surprising and a real treat! Strawberry yogurt, pureed berries and a spicy syrup are blended to produce a fancy first course. —Sara Laker Loda, Illinois

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 3, 2011

Turned out great - the only change I made is I substituted 1/2 cup of Splenda for the sugar to lower the calories a bit. And I fan sliced a few strawberries and put them in the finished soup.

PS - Saw no need for food coloring.

Fun to have something so different and pretty with a meal. I served this with Chicken Salad Sandwiches. Everyone liked it, and had seconds. The only thing I changed in the recipe was not adding any ground cloves or food coloring. Next time I make this, I plan to follow Mrs H's suggestion and use 1/2 the amount of sugar.

I liked this, but I would personally prefer it with less sugar. Next time I make it, I'll probably use 1/2 the amount suggested.
