This week’s CSA box has been, in this writer’s humble opinion, the best of the season! With summer approaching and temperatures rising we are beginning to harvest some of our warmer weather crops. To me the most important, or perhaps delicious, recent offering is our strawberries! They are beautiful and oh so sweet! A close second is our sugar snap peas. Dino kale is another popular addition we provided this week. We also offered huge rutabagas. With this week’s offerings of lettuce mix, bright red radishes, Bordeaux spinach, and scallions, the CSA subscriber has the makings of a wonderful, healthful salad.
Bob’s Strawberry-Kale Smoothies
- A handful of our wonderful strawberries
- A handful of ice
- A banana
- A handful of blueberries
- 2 cups of apple juice
- one large dino kale leaf
Blend all these together in a blender until the ice is well broken up. You will get all the taste of the fruit with the added nutritional benefits of the kale. For a healthy after-work libation a little rum works well also.
