Category:   Soups & Salads - Clean (Only natural/organic ingredients), Vegetarian
From:   The New Vegetarian Cookbook
1 pint strawberries- hulled
1 c fruit juice- orange, papaya, apple-strawberry
Juice of 1 lemon
2 T arrowroot
Honey to taste- optional
3/4 c clean sour cream- or silken tofu- blended
Directions:   Place three-quarters of the strawberries and the cup of fruit juice into a blender and puree. Pour the mixture into a saucepan. Dissolve the arrowroot in the lemon juice and pour this mixture into the saucepan as well. Cook over medium heat until the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and add honey if you like things real sweet. Slice the remaining strawberries and fold them, along with the sour cream or tofu, into the slightly cooled mixture. Refrigerate 2 to 3 hours until well chilled. Serve cold.
