Hale to the Kale

 Just in case you still have difficulty drinking kale, this smoothie may finally make you a convert. 

With avocado for creaminess and pear for sweetness, the kale’s slightly bitter taste flavor completely disappears.  The many benefits remain, however.  There are minerals, vitamins A, C, and K, plus forty-five different antioxidants to help your body fight off free radicals  Enjoy!

1 cup coconut water, nut milk, or water
2 cups kale
1 pear
½-1 avocado
1 cucumber, 1 lemon, peeled
Handful of cilantro
½ inch slice of ginger
1 cup water, or more to reach desired consistency
Add all ingredients to the blender, except the water, and blend well.  Check the consistency, and add a little more water if needed.
