Hey Paula, this soup was so good! My husband picked strawberries on Saturday, and withn 2 days, I had made this delectable soup 4 times, as I just couldn't get enough of it. I think this soup would taste great even as a dessert. When I was preparing this soup for the first time, I reduced the ingredients to make it a serving for one person, and when I needed to add the pineapple juice, I added the juice from a can of crushed pineapple, and later when making the soup again, I ended up adding some of the crushed pineapple, which worked great in the soup. I did however, add 1 tablespoon of sugar per each serving I had made; especially since the pineapple juice is a bit tart. Also, I subbed vanilla yogurt for the strawberry yogurt, and when it came to adding the ice, I added 2 mini ice cubes per each serving. Since I thoroughly enjoyed this soup, I froze extra sweetened strawberries to make this soup again in the near future. Paula, I want to thank you for sharing this recipe with fellow Zaar members. I hope others will make this soup, as it's to die for!!
The whole family enjoyed this soup. I used pineapple-orange-banana juice, and a mixture of strawberry and vanilla yogurt. It didn't need any additional sugar. It was a delicious cold soup for a hot day.
I made a half batch of this as a tasty dessert soup. The flavor was such a treat - bright without being too sweet. Like Rita, I skipped the extra sugar as berries are perfect this time of year. I didn't have pineapple juice and used cran-raspberry juice instead. My guess is that it intensified the berry flavor. Thanks Paula.
