Chilled Strawberry Almond Butter Soup

135 comments

IMG_7801

I wait all year long for local strawberries to make their brief appearance and when I finally see them at the market and in the grocery stores I tend to go a bit crazy.

IMG_9918

I hoard them.

I freeze them.

I go to Strawberry festivals.

I make Strawberry Banana Soft Serve.

I make Strawberry Shortcake Stacked Pancakes.

This weekend, we almost turned into a strawberry. First, there was the High Protein Quinoa Almond Berry Salad that we inhaled after the hike. Then there were chocolate covered strawberries (Eric’s idea!)- one of our all-time favourite desserts.

Finally, this refreshing Chilled Strawberry Almond Butter Soup came about.

IMG_7797

This soup is inspired by a chilled strawberry soup recipe I spotted over at Memories in the Baking. I thought the idea of a chilled strawberry soup was fun. Strawberries are the main ingredient with only a few ‘enhancing’ ingredients to bring out the strawberry flavour.

It’s a lovely dessert for the summertime when you want something light and healthy, yet still sophisticated. I just love the pairing of almonds and strawberries, so I added some almond butter and almond extract to the soup. The almond butter adds creaminess to the subtle tart undertones of the strawberries. A touch of sweetener- and chilling in the fridge- brought it all together!

You can have fun playing around with the recipe too. Strawberry Mint soup, as in this recipe, would also be fantastic. Or if you are a sweet and savoury fan, what about Strawberry Basil soup?

While the soup was chilling in the fridge, we worked up a good sweat working on the deck stairs. The guys weren’t able to help Eric this weekend (note: they are avoiding our calls hah), so I told him that I would help.

IMG_7716-2

The stairs are really intimidating! There are so many calculations and cuts to make.

IMG_7740-2

We got close to completing the large staircase! Just a few more boards to secure.

IMG_0804

After this one, we still have two smaller ones on each end. I’m REALLY ready for this deck to be complete!

At the end of the day, we had a very simple dinner made up of BBQ’d veggies, leftover pearled barley, pasta sauce, and seasonings.

IMG_0794-2  IMG_7803

And then we devoured our chilled soup for dessert! It’s creamy, smooth, and flavourful and it didn’t last long!

T minus 4 days until this weekend’s Strawberry Festival. Not that I’m counting or anything..

This soup looks amazing but it’s the mention of the strawberry soft serve that I’m really interested in – vegan ice cream – I want some.

Its easy- just process frozen bananas with some strawberries in a food processor until smooth. You can add a splash of milk of choice if needed to help it along.

Hello…my name is Jennifer and I have a strawberry addiction….seriously, I hoard them as well. Just picked 50 lbs of them, since I was only down to 10lbs in freezer. LOVE organic strawberries. This recipe just maybe “strawberry worthy”. I have to consider seriously when and how I use my precious berries! :)

Strawberry season in PA is OVER already!! I very nearly cried. :'( But I do wonder what this soup would be like with blueberries? I can’t pass up the berry + almond butter combination. Oh, and I absolutely ADORE that antique spoon — is it an heirloom?

Reply

30 Angela (Oh She Glows) June 21, 2011

thanks! its from the antique market :)

I find that too many blueberries when blended become very gel-like in consistency so I would be hesitant to use all blueberries in this recipe. I think subbing up to 1/3-1/2 cup might work fine though!

Bright red, plump, juicy strawberries are one of my favorite things about summer. Your chilled soup (one of my chefs in culinary school said that “chilled fruit soups” are just code for “smoothie”…haha!) looks great. And there’s something so satisfying about eating a treat with such a beautiful color!

I LOVE strawberries and everyone pictured here looks amazing. I have never been to a strawberry festival, but I am determined to go next year. We always have something going on that weekend but next year, I’m reserving just for that. When I was younger, we used to go strawberry picking with my grandma and then come back and make strawberry jam :-) The best kind of jam is the homemade kind.

I wanted to to let you know that though I am not vegan, your blog has had an unusual effect on my diet (don’t worry, in a GOOD way). I have been eating so many of the dishes you post on here, though I do still eat meat. The things in the middle, cheese, eggs, and other animal products have largely fallen by the wayside. Now when I cook your recipes and take them to parties, everyone is surprised when I announce, “It’s vegan!!!! and SO GOOD!!” (I’m even getting a few of my hardcore meat eating friends to realize, vegan does not equal gross.) Thanks for all the ideas and motivation to eat clean and be a healthier person!

I cannot wait to make this tonight. I made the berry quinoa salad and it was the loveliest post workout breakfast on a hot summer Florida morning. Thank you for all your recipes, Angela!

This looks amazing, you’re so inventive! Though I’m not sure if the strawberries I just bought will survive long enough for me to make this, I’ve already eaten half of them! ;)

This is my first comment on your blog. I read it regularly, and I just wanted to say thank you for sharing all of your wonderful recipes. I made your strawberry soup a few minutes ago. I’m going to have it for dessert after I have my veggie burger breakfast. I adapted the recipe for a single serving, and changed the flavour extract. Here’s what I used:

-170 grams strawberries
-1 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
-1/2 tbsp raw almond butter
-1/8 tsp mint extract
-1/2 tbsp maple syrup

It’s very, very minty and sitting in my freezer right now to chill. I’m going to pick some mint leaves from my plant to garnish it. I was also thinking that some vegan dark chocolate shavings would be a nice garnish as well (but no chocolate blended into the actual soup).

Have you tried Artisana raw almond butter? It’s incredible. I can’t go a day without it. It tastes so fresh and adds an extra bit of ‘life’ to whatever you put it in :D

I love strawberries and almond together. I love putting frozen strawberries into my almond-extract infused oat bran bowls. The nuttiness and sweetness of the fruit go so well together!

This is absolutely gorgeous! I love the combination of strawberries and almonds. And I love that I have all of these ingredients in my fridge right now! Seems like just the thing for this warm spring night.

I wrote a compilation post about my favorite strawberry recipes (http://bit.ly/Kx5aYE) and I sure did include a link to this beautiful soup! Can’t wait to give it a try…
