Can't get the kale to break up into smaller pieces so drinking clumps with pears, apples, lemon is nasty still. My blender is very strong.
Suggestions to break down the kale????????????? Not taking stem of kale out.

Take the stem out. Then add fluid; blend the greens then add the rest.

Thanks for coming quickly to the rescue. Ok...learned a hard lesson, but a lasting one. Thought I would take the short cut--no destemming, add all the fruits/kale same time and blend away....obviously I was wrong. Thanks bunches. Come on over...just finished my last batches, hopefully, of kraut. Been giving everyone samples and they love it so it keeps my kraut/pickle days entended to pass out more to them.

When I use kale, I just take out the long stem, but leave the middle stem in. My vitamix has no problem with it. You might want to try tweaking the layering. I layer this way, water, fruit, greens, and a few ice cubes on top. This allows the generally harder items to process first and the ice on top adds a little weight. Good luck!
