3 Kale leaves (I used red kale), wash clean and separate from stem
2 Pears of your choice (I used packhams), cut into small peaces
Cilantro (1 - 2 fistfulls), washed, but I did not bother to separate from stem
Strawberries to taste, wash, and cut if necesary
Water (1 to 2 cups)
Ice - If chilled smoothie is desired
Add kale and water into blender and purée down as best as possible (I don’t have a very powerful blender – but I have noticed that if I blend down the tough greens first with just water, that It can actually cut down the greens to a fine pulp). Add pear pieces, and cilantro, and blend once more. Add strawberries to taste (I used 4 to 5 medium sized pieces). Add ice (if desired)... enjoy!
