Strawberry Soup with Ginger and Mint


In some countries, strawberries are made into a soup and served as an aphrodisiac.  We like this version with added ginger for spice and mint.

8 cups fresh ripe strawberries 

2 cups vanilla or strawberry yogurt

1/2 cup orange or apple juice

1-2 tbs sugar or sugar substitute (optional)

1 small piece fresh ginger

fresh mint and almonds for garnish


  1. Peel and mince the ginger.
  2. Hull and half the strawberries. (Save a few berries for each bowl for garnish.)
  3. Add berries, yogurt, orange juice, sugar and ginger to a blender.
  4. Blend until smooth and creamy (no chunks).
  5. Place in refrigerator for at least two hours.
  6. Garnish with fresh mint, berries and almonds.
