Strawberry Soup

There isn't much to say about this soup that isn't obvious from it's ingredients (or that delicious photo): strawberries, yogurt, yum! Anything with strawberries in it, I will try. I don't like chocolate, but I thoroughly make up for it with my love of strawberry. Unfortunately that doesn't help me to try new flavors at ice cream outings because if strawberry is an option, I will choose it every single time. Shakes? Strawberry, thank you. I guess you could say I do have a slight obsession with them, which makes it very surprising that I haven't posted more recipes. Usually I like to just eat them by the pound (oops) and so this was a change for me. As soon as I had that first bite of this soup, I knew it wouldn't last more than a day or two. My blender also made it to the sink pretty clean. ;)
