    1. Tonya, you could substitute regular milk or cream if you aren’t trying to stay Paleo. Or you could use almond milk for a Paleo option. Hope that helps!

  1. I’m glad I found your recipe after googleing “coconut, sausage and kale soup”. I had some chicken sausage links on hand that I browned up and used instead of the beef sausage. I will try my hand at your beef sausage recipe and use that next time I make this. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  2. Awesome recipe!! My husband cannot get enough! Reminds me of the potato soup from Olive Garden, without the potatoes of course.

  3. My soup sure didn’t look like yours but it was damned yummy! This is the only way I find kale palatable. I may even branch out and experiment with Bok choy – another leafy green that to me is bitter and disgusting. Unless you already have some ideas…:D

  4. This recipe is AMAZING! Made it today, but don’t think I’ll get to freeze it before I eat it all up! LOVE the use of kale in it…delicious!!
