Simple Strawberry Bisque Recipe!

Straberry Bisque

Hi readers!  As promised, I have another strawberry themed recipe for you today that is inspired by a Carnival cruise I took late last year.  For the formal dinner, I ordered the strawberry bisque and I fell in love right away.  It was so cool and refreshing and it’s such a perfect recipe to make this summer, now that strawberries are in season. I looked up the recipe online and decided to recreate it with a few minor tweaks.  Here’s my take.

Ingredients

3 c strawberries

1 1/2 water

3 tbs lemon juice

1 cup Greek Yogurt (honey flavored)

1/2 cup heavy cream

Optional: Fresh mint (flavor and garnish)

Directions

Blend strawberries and water in a blender.

Stir in heavy cream, Greek yogurt and lemon juice.

Chill for several hours before serving and top off with mint.

*Side note:  The original recipe calls for sour cream and you can add that or plain Greek yogurt.  I decided to use honey flavored Greek yogurt in place of sugar but you can use 3/4 c sugar instead too.  You can find the recipes I searched up here and here.

And that’s it.  An easy to make treat that you can enjoy with the family or share with others.

Now I’d love to hear from you!  Would you enjoy seeing more posts like these?  Let me know in the comments.

Simple Strawberries and Cream Recipe!

Strawberry 2

Hi readers!  How is everyone doing?

I have a simple recipe to share with you today.  There was a strawberry festival over the weekend which means there is a box full of strawberries in the fridge, ready to be used.  One of my favorite things to make is fresas con crema (strawberries and cream) and it’s super easy to make.  Normally it requires Mexican crema or crème fraiche but I like to substitute Greek yogurt instead to make it healthier. *Note: I am not a health expert nor am I claiming to be one; I’m just sharing what works for me. 

Follow the steps below for a great, vitamin C rich snack!

Fresas con Crema

Strawberries, cut in half

Greek yogurt (plain or vanilla flavored)

Optional: granola, coconut flakes and/or honey

Mix the strawberries and Greek yogurt together in a bowl- if you’re using plain yogurt, you can drizzle a bit of honey on top to sweeten it just a bit.  You can enjoy it as is or top it off with coconut flakes and/or granola.

And that’s it.  Easy, right?

Stay tuned for a few more strawberry themed recipes in the coming weeks!
