From Sharon Delaney-Chronis in South Milwaukee, Wisconsin: When I first prepared this change-of-pace soup for a party, everyone called it a hit! My husband always likes it warmed up, but I prefer my soup chilled. Any leftovers, we drizzle over frozen custard for a fresh, fruity topping. — Sharon Delaney-Chronis, South Milwaukee, Wisconsin


  • 1 cup water, divided
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled
  • 2 cups strawberry yogurt
  • 2 to 3 drops red food coloring, optional
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons milk


  1. In a large saucepan, combine 3/4 cup water, apple juice, sugar, cinnamon and cloves. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat.
  2. Place strawberries and remaining water in a blender; cover and process until smooth. Pour into apple juice mixture. Stir in yogurt and food coloring if desired. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until chilled.
  3. Ladle soup into bowls. Combine sour cream and milk; spoon about 2-1/2 teaspoons into the center of each bowl. Using a toothpick, pull mixture out, forming a flower or design of your choice.
