I love Valentine's Day, how about you? I love candy hearts, paper doilies, red roses, pink cupcakes, romantic violin music, candle light dinners and seeing men scurrying here, there and everywhere with bouquets of beautiful flowers for their sweethearts. One of my love languages for Valentine's Day and all through the year is making special treats for family and friends. I prepared this delicious dessert soup especially for my son, since he's quite smitten with clementine oranges. I had some beautiful fresh strawberries and decided to pair them with the sweet clementines for a fun and unique dessert.
This delicious Strawberry-Clementine Soup comes together in minutes, looks quite impressive, is bright, fresh and amazingly guilt-free from a nutritional point of view. How many desserts can you say all that about? Pull out your fanciest glasses for the big V-day and treat you family/friends/sweetheart to a delightful, heart-healthy treat.
P.S. A shortbread cookie (or two) would be a wonderful accompaniment to this delicious, vibrant soup...... and quite legal since the dessert is so healthy. Isn't that how it works?
- 1 ½ quarts fresh strawberries
- zest and juice of 8 clementine oranges
- ¼ cup honey
- zest and juice of 1 lime
- ½ cup dry white wine

Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor container and puree until smooth. Taste and add a bit more honey and/or lime juice, if needed.

Serve in your fanciest glasses, drizzled with Greek yogurt (thinned with a bit of milk or cream) or whipping cream. Swirl yogurt or cream with a toothpick for a beautiful presentation.
