I love to have tea parties, and this cold soup is the perfect first course! I make it a day or two in advance so I'm not rushed the day of the event. Serve in small bowls or even punch cups for just a taste so that your guests don't fill up, but have room for the rest of the small servings a tea party is noted for.

Just loved it. Did not have half and half so used 2% milk. Will be making again and will try different fruit. Thank you for sharing this wonderful dish Paula. Read More

i believe this is the right idea but the ingredient list needs to specify frozen berries with sugar or without. mine were without and it needed lots more sugar and some more berries for more strawberry taste. when i was finished tinkering though it tasted exactly like the carnival cruise version. i think the sweetened berries would be the better choice as they will result in a sweeter mixture and more intense strawberry flavor (just like a macerated berry mixture does) Read More
