Reviews for Summer Strawberry Soup
"Really great! I think I will try it again with peaches, or cantelope, or mangoes."
"Fantastic!! So easy to make, I used strawberry yogurt, and did a little less sugar than it called for. Just my preference-you do whatever YOU want. Shared some with friends, and they asked for the recipe, so I just rattled it off the top of my head since it was that easy to make! You'll love it! If there's any left (which I doubt there will be), I'm going to freeze into popsicle molds"
"I used this recipe on tv for a cooking segment because it is so easy and delicious! I love that it can be prepared as is; or that it can be done as "skinny soup" with reduced fat yogurt and sweetener. Either way, my daughter, my worst critic deemed it awesome!"
"It was great everybody lik't - UrsulaK."
"My family loved this -especially my kids! We had more than we could eat at one meal, so we froze the remaining soup into popsicle molds. They are awesome -and healthy because I didn't use any sugar and also used Light and Fit Yogurt. Yum!"
"This sounds great but a friend of mine is alergic to strawberries. Would it work just as well with raspberries?"
"it is fantastic for the summer."
"I made this for a family dinner and everyone loved it. I skipped the sugar - and used fat free vanilla yogurt to bring down the calorie and fat count. Garnished with a whole strawberry slit and perched on edge of crystal bowl. Very showing and delicious. Rave reviews from all."
"Isn't this a smoothie???????"
"Great recipe! The only thing I did different was to leave out the sugar. Just make sure berries are ripe and it needs no other sweetener! I didn't have mint so I chopped up basil and it was wonderful. Served it at a small tea party with girlfriends and they all loved it!"
"This is just great, everybody loved it at a summer affair."
"Good lunch for a hot summer day!"
