Cold Strawberry Soup

A few weeks ago one of my driver's at work brought me a half flat of fresh local strawberries, I was so surprised by this. My husband and I hulled them and then froze the berries so we could use them all summer long. Now that the hot summer days have finally arrived in Beaverton I took some out of the freezer to make something a little sweet for dessert tonight, I also wanted to make something I have not tried before. I came across a recipe that sounded just like what I was looking for, simple not too fussy, cold and delish.

2 C. - Hulled Sliced Fresh or (thawed) Frozen Strawberries
1 C. - Orange Juice
8 Oz. - Yoplait Light French Vanilla Yogurt
1/2 Tsp. - Vanilla Extract
1/4 C. - Sugar
Whip Topping

In a blender combine the berries, juice, yogurt, vanilla and sugar until smooth. Refrigerate until cold before serving. Pour into a bowl or cup and top with a dollop of whipped cream, then enjoy this cold refreshing dessert soup on a hot summer night.
