Chunky Strawberry Soup for Summertime!

Chunky Strawberry Soup (GF, DF, EF)All winter long, I enjoy hearty soups. Last year, I cooked everything from a butternut squash to a classic beef stew to keep me plenty warm inside! But, it turns out that soups can be light, refreshing, and perfect for summertime as well.

Earlier this week my mom and sister sent along a three-ingredient soup recipe! (All pictures in this post are from them too). It’s amazing what you can make with just strawberries, apple juice, and mint leaves.

This chunky strawberry soup is filled with sweetness, and perfect for your next poolside party. When I go to the farmer’s market this weekend, I’ll be on the lookout for strawberries to make this simple soup.

What’s your favorite quick soup? Or item to buy at your local farmer’s market?
