Recipe: Strawberry Soup from 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian
Updated: Jul 8
You read that correctly, strawberry SOUP. Don’t worry, it’s chilled.
Since 1900 Park Fare hasn’t reopened since the phased reopening of Disney dining, we have resorted to making the infamous Strawberry Soup at home. This sweet treat is the perfect summer dessert made from only a few ingredients and a blender.
1900 Park Fare is an elegant breakfast and dinner buffet located in the Grand Floridian resort. The Supercalifragilistic Breakfast is accompanied by none other than Mary Poppins, Alice in Wonderland, The Mad Hatter, Tigger, and Winnie the Pooh. Whereas Cinderella’s Happily Ever After Dinner is joined by Cinderella and Prince Charming. If you’re lucky, you may get to meet Lady Tremaine, Anastasia, and Drizella as well. This restaurant has not reopened since the park shut down during the pandemic.
Yields 4 servings
2 pounds frozen strawberries thawed with juice
8 ounces fresh strawberries
4 tablespoons sour cream
6 tablespoons plain yogurt
2 cups heavy cream
Add the frozen strawberries thawed with juice, sour cream, plain yogurt, and heavy cream to your blender. Blend until smooth.
Place in refrigerator for 10 minutes.
Shake well and pour into bowl.
Garnish with fresh strawberries.
This cold soup is a surprisingly refreshing treat perfect for strawberry season. I cut the recipe to make a single serving and used freshly-picked strawberries from a local farm. This made it extra sweet and it tasted delicious. The consistency seems a little off in comparison to 1900 Park Fare’s version and I may have needed a dash more heavy cream.
