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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine berries and sugar and mix well.
  2. Stir in lemon juice.
  3. Run berries through blender or food processor briefly to break them up.
  4. Melt butter in a saucepan and blend in flour.
  5. Add cream cheese and milk all at once and immediately stir vigorously over moderate heat.
  6. Continue to cook until thickened, stirring frequently to create a sauce-like consistency, although it will stay a bit thin.
  7. Cool, stirring occasionally. Chill.
  8. Just before serving, stir berries gradually into the sauce.

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. :-)

Oh my goodness!!!! This is delicious! And so pretty! Very refreshing, and fruity. I made mine with fresh strawberries. I will be making this again. Thank you for posting... made for "Think Pink" in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2008.

I really like bisques of any kind and this is no exception. I was expecting it to be a little more sweet, but I was pleasantly surprised to find it refreshingly fruity. Made for Fall PAC 2008. Thanks Starrynews.
