This is a classic dish that has been found in various forms on the Disney Cruise Line I think almost since the days the ships set out on the sea. Because Disney prides itself on quality ingredients, they often tweak the recipe to include the freshest, most seasonally appropriate fruits.
It has been served as mango strawberry soup, mango pineapple, pineapple orange, mango and papaya, and probably several other combinations I have missed in between.
I did try to adjust this recipe slightly as the original makes two quarts of soup, so my result may have been just a tad thicker than I see served on Disney Cruise Line, and I think this could have maybe been strained a little to make it slightly less pulpy. The taste was still sensational, bright, and oh-so-refreshing.
The kids thought I was nuts for putting it in a bowl and calling it a soup, but they love, love, loved it too and actually asked for seconds. When I did my version of the dried mint dollop… Holy cow. It took this to another level. It was incredible.
