This looks splendidly yummy! I'll try this next for my kid's snack...we used to have Berry Buttermilk Soup which we found on GourmetRecipe.com but it's nice to try new things. I often check it out for recipes and cooking information including Care2.com, WikiChicken.com, EverythingLemon.com, and the SaladSite.com for different moods and occasions. Thanks for this appetizing recipe!

By the way, here's the link to the mentioned recipe: www.gourmetrecipe.com/recipes/berry-buttermilk-soup
