About this recipe: This chilled soup may sound a little strange, but consider it as a creamy strawberry smoothie served in a bowl. Strawberries are pureed with milk, double cream, soured cream and sugar. It makes a deliicous treat during the summer months.
I made a lower-fat version with "light" vanilla soy milk, non-fat sour cream and fat free half and half. I also doubled the berries. It was really wonderful and supercreamy. I didn't miss the fat at all! - 27 Apr 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I was looking for a recipe to replicate the one I had on a Carnival cruise several years ago and THIS IS IT! I've made this recipe many, many times and I love it! I usually add a little more sugar than the recipe calls for. If I'm making it for a special occasion, I'll use whole milk and regular sour cream. If I'm making it just for me, I'll use skim milk and low-fat sour cream. It still tastes just as good! - 11 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Absolutely wow!!!!! I cannot believe people did not like this. I have been back into the soup turine five times since making this one and a half hours ago. My kids have each had two servings and this was because they couldn't wait until dinner. I decided to add ground cinnamon because it took the flavors to another level (I have a great strawberry bread recipe that has a lot of cinnamon in it and I was basing my decision to add on that recipe). Anyhow, the cinnamon adds a nice bit of color as well and doesn't make it as pink. Try this recipe and fall in love with it. It makes such an ample amount. I did go ahead an increase the sugar as well but did it to taste. - 13 Sep 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
