Pink Prosecco Soup

“DO YOU HAVE A KINDER, MORE ADAPTABLE FRIEND IN THE FOOD WORLD THAN SOUP?”  Judith Martin (Miss Manners)

Pink Prosecco Soup | From My Sweet Heart

Well today is the culmination of a week long celebration of SOUP!  Fourteen amazing women have come together, again with a theme.  This month, we are sharing our best and favorite recipes for soup!  And Miss Manners, could not have posed a better question.  Soup is one of the most adaptable foods I can think of.  Each recipe you will find here today is fabulous as is.  But like all soup, you can change it up depending on the season, your personal tastes, or what you have available in your cupboards.  I helped to wrap up the week with, what else?  This luscious dessert soupStrawberries lend the sweetness. While yogurt makes it creamyProsecco gives it a fizzy tang.  And top it off with a little cracked, black pepper for a hint of heat and spice.  Ready for more???

 

This is an extremely easy soup to throw together at the last minute.  I used strawberries.  But any berry  (or combination of berries) would work as well.  I wish I had thought to freeze some of my summer strawberries because I think this soup would have been more naturally sweet on it’s own.  I added a bit of sugar to round out my berries.

 

 

Pink Prosecco Soup | From My Sweet Heart

 

Yields:  8 (1/2 cup) servings

Level of Difficulty:  as easy as making a smoothie!

 

PINK PROSECCO SOUP:

  • 16 ounces of frozen strawberries, defrosted
  • 1 cup of Prosecco
  • 1/4 cup of caster sugar
  • 3/4 cup of vanilla yogurt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • fresh strawberries for garnish
  • freshly cracked black pepper for garnish

Puree the strawberries, prosecco and salt in a blender until it is smooth.  Add the yogurt and continue to blend until the mix is combined and creamy.  NOW TASTE IT!  Depending on the sweetness of your strawberries, you may not need to add the sugar.  I used 1/4 cup, but you may adjust it to your tastes.  Refrigerate the soup until you are ready to serve it.  Garnish it with additional strawberries and some freshly cracked, black pepper. 

NOTE:  You can certainly make this with fresh berries.  If you are making it on a whim, you don’t need to thaw your frozen strawberries.  Just throw everything in your blender and your soup is ready to serve!

 

I guess you could accompany this with some light, little cookies.  But what I found paired well with this, were some salty, chocolate and yogurt covered pretzels!

I also like to mention that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to thrift store shop for anything I can use to showcase my recipes.  I am especially partial to vintage things.  I was lucky enough one day to come across these pretty little bowls.  They were 79 cents each, and they had 5 of them!  Woo Hoo!  I scooped them up!  I wasn’t sure at the time how I would use them.   And when I first thought about this recipe, I considered making dessert soup shooters.  But I think these little bowls, with their pretty round ‘feet’, worked out well.

  5. Can soup be considered attractive, because your soup is *gorgeous* Anne! So simple and pretty. I absolutely adore your new bowls! Thrift stores are a great source of vintage treasures.

  6. I love your dessert spin on Soup Week, Anne. I wish my Shrimp Bisque had photographed as well! It’s not a photogenic soup, sadly, but it tastes so much better than it looks. Your pretty prosecco soup is a perfect way to finish Soup Week with a flourish, and a perfect lead-in to the Valentine’s season. Awesome job!

    • Thanks Jeanne….and your shrimp bisque photographed beautifully and looked wonderfully PLUSH (it’s Jeanne’s new cooking term…..I think it means perfectly luscious!). That is definitely on my soup list this year!

  19. When I saw “soup” I thought – Anne made a savory dish?! I should have know better. :) Actually, this sweet refreshing soup looks delicious and is giving me hope for warm, spring weather. The combination of strawberries and Sparkling wine always reminds me of the movie Pretty Woman, a great combination! I’m definitely going to have to put Prosecco on the liquor store list! Can’t wait to make this!

    • Ha! Thanks MJ! I will do savory here….but only in baking! Though I LOVE making soup! To me, soup & quiche is a perfect duo….and your swiss chard and leek quiche looks amazing! : )

  20. Girl, what will you think of next. Dessert soup? You crazy.

    No, but in all seriousness, this is pretty cool looking. Not to mention, the thrift store find. I love it!

    • I is crazy, Mikaela! And so is you! Those amazing oven baked wings are making me cry right now….I want a plate of those so badly! And your photos…stunning! : )

  21. Those bowls are gorgeous…but even more so is this soup…holy smokes!!

    • Anne Boeckl says:

      Thanks Nina…and what would go perfectly with this is a plate of your olive oil shortbread cookies….beautiful! : )

  25. Anne, this is simple and elegant–I could totally whip this up for a quick dessert when we have guests. Well done–and I love that you have the Seinfeld Soup Nazi episode refered in your blog.

    • Anne Boeckl says:

      Thanks Krista….and I love what you did with the Cake Slice Banana Cake…..a stroke of genius….either that or you work well under pressure! ;- }

    • Anne Boeckl says:

      Thanks Angie….and there’s some amazing color to be had in your red lentil sun dried tomato muffins….beautiful! : )

  27. Anything “prosecco” or “strawberry” has my FULL attention! This looks lovely, Anne.

    • Anne Boeckl says:

      Thanks Georgia and I know what you mean as well….anything with eggplant, especially when it is nestled in a cheesy pasta bake….gets mine! : )

  28. What a delicious looking soup. It has Valentine’s Day written all over it!

    • Anne Boeckl says:

      Thanks Eileen….this could benefit from some of your sweet little heart sandwich cookies….and they would even match!!! : )

  29. Hi Anne! Prosecco is one of my favorites, so I can’t wait to make this. This looks so good! I hope you are doing well!

    • Anne Boeckl says:

      Hi Claire….thanks so much and I am doing well. I would be doing better if you made me one of your specialty fluffy omelettes for breakfast! I hope everything is good on your end, too! : )

  30. I think this looks like a great soup (with a twist) for a soup swap I’m attending soon. The swap requires you to freeze the soup. Do you think this would freeze well?

    • Anne Boeckl says:

      Thanks Julie and I sent you an email. I don’t think this would freeze well because of the prosecco. I used frozen strawberries, so it really does come together very quickly! : )
