    I make a green smoothie almost every morning, but I have the most awful and unproductive blender. I would LOVE to use this blender to make a morning beverage that does NOT include me chewing bits of kale. I love kale, and chew it often in the right circumstances, but in a smoothie I would like it to be smooth :)
