Orange, Pear, Avocado Kale Smoothie

It’s been a while since I made myself a smoothie, so I picked up a bunch of kale from the store and decided to make a smoothie with some of the fruit that I had on hand. For some reason, I feel compelled to add kale to 99% of my smoothies. It’s a really great way to bulk them up and add some wonderful nutrients. This one was nice and refreshing, and my toddler seriously loved it, too. Bonus!
