A chilled creamy Pineapple soup that will transport you from spending a hot summer day on your couch right over to Hawaii or any other exotic tropical destination that you have always dreamed of. Of course, wearing a flower tiara or garland goes a long way in the whole “Hawaii” feeling but you can start with this amazing pineapple soup!
“Not all those who wander are lost” – J.R.R Tolkien. A wanderer, that’s definitely something every one of us must feel in a lifetime. Feeling like a wanderer and being consumed by the lust of finding your niche is just the fuel you need to propel you forward. But living through the feeling is quite unsettling. It’s hard not to feel lost. It’s hard not to miss the comfort of cozy spaces and friendly faces that you have known for a lifetime. Familiar smells and comforting food that one can relate to is what, in my opinion, a wanderer needs to not feel lost. The next best thing to a hug, soul food, whether a fruit or a warm stew is what keeps a wanderer world’s wonder alive!

This pineapple soup can be made using cream or coconut milk. I have tried it both ways and loved it all. Since the pineapple soup is fruity and chilled, I liked it best served as an appetizer shot but my husband did enjoy a bowlful of it. Use your discretion about the serving size. The measurements provided in the recipe gives the serving size for both shots and bowls. I have a couple of other tips listed in the “my take” section too.
