Makes 2 cups (4 servings)

Here's a great idea for something surprising and unusual to serve during the weekend. For a festive presentation, swirl hot fudge sauce across the surface of this chilled soup. Sometimes I use it as the first course to launch a meal, but it's equally delightful as a dessert.

2 cups sliced fresh strawberries

1 cup plain yogurt

¼ cup Madeira or other fortified semi-sweet white wine

1 tablespoon sugar, or to taste

Sprigs of fresh mint for garnish

Purée all the soup ingredients, except the garnish, in a blender until smooth. Taste and adjust the sweetening.

Refrigerate in a covered container until chilled, at least 3 hours, before serving.

Garnish the servings with mint sprigs.
