Chilled Strawberry Soup Recipe // Video
Inspired by the version served at the majestic Grand Floridian Hotel in Disney, this Chilled Strawberry Soup recipe is a little lighter but tastes even better than the original. Easy to make in just a few minutes, you’ll be whipping it up all summer long!
Chilled Strawberry Soup
Let’s talk about Walt Disney World for a moment. I absolutely love it there. It is the happiest place on earth. At least the memories you keep are always that it’s the happiest place on earth. While you’re there, it’s fun…and clean….and amazingly magical.
Even the food….it’s magically delicious and keeps you craving it for years to come. Enter this refreshing Chilled Strawberry Soup that I enjoyed at the 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian Hotel buffet and had to recreate at home.
It’s light, creamy and perfect. We love whipping this up for spring and summer brunch but it’s even better for a holiday like Easter. Serve it up in shot glasses for a bridal shower or just sip it on the porch for a satisfying sweet treat.
Even better, this easy Strawberry Soup is ready in minutes.
How To Make It
Wash and hull the strawberries drying them with a paper towel.
Add the strawberries and other ingredients to a blender.
Puree until smooth.
Serve in a bowl with a dollop of whipped cream and a sliced strawberry.
I dream about the Chilled Strawberry Soup regularly. It’s so light and creamy, smooth and sweet. My version is a little lighter than the recipes I’ve seen online when doing a little research.
And unlike the Disney version I keep seeing, I use fresh strawberries, not frozen. I also replaced the often used sour cream with low-fat greek yogurt and the heavy cream with half and half.
For this recipe, I totally skipped out on the sour cream and used all low-fat greek yogurt then blended it all into a velvety puree. Kinda like a really loose smoothie. It’s like a Fresh Strawberry Soup that’s fantastic when using those amazingly bright and vibrant IN SEASON strawberries.
Can I use frozen strawberries?
You can definitely replace the fresh strawberries with frozen but be sure to thaw them before blending or you’ll just end up with a smoothie.
