Orange Cream Kale

2 cups vanilla soy milk
3 whole kale leaves
1 ½ cups frozen tropical fruit
Fruit of 1 fresh orange or one 7-oz can mandarin oranges, drained
¼ cup dry milk

6 oz vanilla yogurt

Blueberry Lime Kale

2 cups soy milk
3 whole kale leaves
1 ½ cups frozen blueberries
½ cup pineapple chunks

Yum! Thanks!

We don't do soy but I'm thinking coconut milk would be a good substitute in many of those recipes.

 Definately, the milk is the most flexible ingredient.

We use home-grown kefir in our smoothies, but the coconut milk sounds a lot sweeter!
