Vegan Strawberries And Cream

September 1, 2021
As we enter September, strawberry season starts coming to a close, but I’m still holding on to the last days of summer and making the most of these sweet berries while I still can. Strawberries and cream is one of my favorite simple treats so I used these flavors as an inspiration for this recipe. A traditional British strawberries and cream typically uses just three ingredients roughly mashed together: strawberries, some type of cream, and sugar. I was also inspired by classic, chilled gazpacho that uses berries and fruit as a base. I simply added plain yogurt to make it richer and smoother.

This soup is cooling and refreshing, and it almost tastes like a thin version of a smoothie. It also gives off a beautiful pink hue when served. You can easily double or triple this recipe to serve at a bridal or baby shower, Valentine’s day, or whatever occasion you desire. I used confectioners sugar in this recipe because it melts right in to the liquids, but I’m not sure how well cane sugar would work. I served mine topped with strawberries, basil, and coconut whipped cream.
