Mud Slide

Mud Slide
This recipe was born out of need to use the tasty tender kale greens abounding in Tom's vegetable garden, and to sweeten it up naturally for a breakfast smoothie.  The result was an incredibly tasty concoction, but as ugly as the mud slides created by the floods two weeks ago in Duluth!  But that idea created the name for this zany, tasty morning smooothie!   Blueberries, kale, soy milk, and 1/2 of a frozen banana.  You NEED to try this.  Honestly.  Surprise yourself with a delightfully healthy breakfast.  Remember, kale and blueberries both contain important nutrients for maximum health each day.  Ah....grow the food, puree the food, enjoy the day.  Pzazz!

1/2 cup WestSoy Organic unsweetened soy milk 
   (remember to always use organic soy products since other types contain high levels of pesticides) 
1/2 frozen banana                                               
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup chopped tender kale, stems removed

Place all ingredients in a VitaMix and puree on high until smooth and creamy.
