Creamy Broccoli Spinach Soup

This soup is great either hot or cold. It tastes delicious, too.  Super low in fat, no cholesterol, low in sodium and high in fiber (about 10 grams per 1 cup serving), you can’t go wrong.  Eat it with a salad or chickpea salad sandwich for a stick to your ribs lunch or dinner.  To make the soup smooth and “creamy”, you will need either a blender or food processor.
