Fruit Soups

I was preparing the family dinner the other day and I was starving!! I whipped up this amazing raw soup in less than 1 minute and continued to prep the dinner--no kidding. Here is how it came together:
I washed 1 cup of organic blueberries and 1 cup organic raspberries; into a bowl they went. In my personal sized blender I blended 2 organic bananas with a small handful of both blueberries and raspberries; poured it over top of the berries in the bowl and I was chowing down in less than a minute!! Quick and DELICIOUS!

1 Cup organic blueberries (reserve a few for soup)
1 Cup organic raspberries (reserve a few for soup)
2 organic bananas
water for blending (2 Tbsp more or less)
In a bowl place the raspberries and blueberries.
Next, in a personal size blender, blend the 2 bananas and a few blueberries and raspberries with a tablespoon or two of water just to get it blending. Blend until smooth and pour over the bowl full of berries. Enjoy!

A few days later I made this ultra simple fruit soup--extra chunky.
