A friend gave me this delicious recipe, which I adjusted a bit for our tastes and for what I usually have on hand. It is a fun, fruity twist on a bisque.

Made as a prize for the *Best of 2008* game ~ While I am esp fond of chilled fruit soups & bisques, my DH does not normally share my passion for them ~ BUT I found a way to chg his mind w/creative use of your recipe. I made a full recipe as written except for using frozen strawberries. To serve, I ladled the soup around a scoop of vanilla frozen yoghurt & sprinkled a bit of nutmeg over it. DH was in heaven & even suggested the combo would make a great milk shake. I fear I may have created a *strawberry bisque shake* monster. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
