This strawberry soup recipe is perfect for the warmer summer months. It makes a great, light dinner or even a delicious dessert!

If somebody had told me yesterday that I could have strawberry soup for dinner, AND feel full when I was done, I would have laughed square in their face. But boy did I prove myself wrong!

This stuff made the yummiest summer dinner! I served it with a salad and by the time dinner was over, I was just as full as if I had eaten a plate of chicken! Must have been all the fiber. And man, was this yummy! It felt like I was having dessert instead of dinner!

WHAT TO SERVE WITH STRAWBERRY SOUP:

Strawberry soup is definitely a stand-alone dish in many cases. It’s the highlight of any meal. That being said, there are a couple of ways to serve this in order to make a full meal out of it.

  • Goes well with grilled cheese sandwiches.
  • It’s lovely served with a side, green salad (perhaps with some strawberry vinaigrette!)
  • If serving this as a dessert, try sprinkling some nuts or coconut flakes over the top for garnish.
  • As a dessert, this can also be served with other fresh fruits. Try bigger chunks of pineapple, oranges or even bananas. You can mix them in or serve them on the side.

  1. If I were to make this, I’d be the only one to eat it so I just wanted to ask if it keeps well in the fridge for a couple of days? Thank you! 🙂 xx

      Not sure because we finished it all in one sitting around here. I would just cut the recipe in half.

  2. Cristolsmyth says:

    I would call this a smoothie, served in a bowl 🙂

    1. graciouspantry says:

      You could, but it’s a little thinner than a smoothie.

  3. Stan Starsky says:

    I eat yogurt instead of ice cream and sometimes with strawberries but I have never added lemon juice…I will give it a try

      I hope you enjoy it!

  4. Kristin Leppelman Najera says:

    Sounds really interesting. It’s been really hot out here (DC), so I think I’ll try this one this week. I know it’s not time yet for the no sugar challenge, but … I was wondering what type of vanilla you use. I noticed that my “pure vanilla extract” has sugar on the ingredient list. I’m sure it’s not much, and 1 tsp isn’t a huge amount. But I was really surprised to find sugar in my “pure” vanilla.

    1. graciouspantry says:

      Ya, there shouldn’t be any added sugar if it says pure. Not sure what happened there, unless the labeling laws changed (totally possible) and they are allowed to say that now. Try other brands till you find one. It should just be alcohol and vanilla.

    Wow Tiffany! It’s like you looked in my pantry and said, ‘Hmm, what can we do with that?’ LOL Saw it, made it, enjoyed it! DD just had her wisdom teeth out this week and is a strawberry lover…two yums up! She’s taking it to share with friends tonight at an open air play :). Thanks again! Eliza B)

      My pleasure! Glad you all enjoyed it!
