Purée the strawberries in a food processor until smooth and add the cream, if you’re using it. Season with sugar and freshly ground black pepper.

To serve:

Crush several ice cubes and place a spoonful of the crushed ice into chilled soup bowls. Spoon the soup into each one and drizzle with balsamic reduction. Garnish with chopped strawberries and serve.
