Fancy Berry Blend Smoothie and Soup

As many of you know, each and every morning I make our children a green smoothie of some sort. And then I use what is left in the blender as the base for my morning green soup. We alternate our greens and fruits to make different combinations--keeping it new and exciting is key! Lately this particular one is their "favorite".  I have also included the recipe for my soup that I made, using the leftover smoothie as my base. Enjoy!
