This strawberry coconut soup is one I’ve made for years, and always with the best strawberries I can find. For a party, I can make it the day before and keep it in the refrigerator until minutes before serving in small bowls as an appetizer soup.
- If the strawberries aren’t completely ripe, you may need a little extra agave.
- If you use full fat coconut milk, you can reduce the amount by half.
- Don’t ignore the mint slivers. It elevates the strawberry coconut soup from good to something truly special. You don’t need much, just a few slivers for a small cup of soup.
