CSA recipe of the week: Green smoothies

Here's an unusual recipe that could help you make short work of a variety of greens once they start showing up in your CSA bags - or gardens, if you're growing vegetables yourself. It comes from Sarah Sorci, who used to enjoy it for breakfast before working at the Gong Garden CSA in Fredonia.

Green Smoothie

1 banana
1 cup chopped fresh greens (spinach, kale, collards, lettuce, pak choi, etc. - the younger, the tastier)
1/2 cup yogurt
Water, milk, milk substitute or fruit juice, as needed
1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional)

Process in blender or food processor, adding water or fruit juice until it reaches desired consistency. You can add berries, nut butters, cucumbers or other ingredients, as you like.

"I like to add peanut butter, berries, and cucumbers," Sorci wrote. "This is a great way to sneak greens into your family's diet. With a ripe or overripe banana in there, you can't taste greens at all. It just gives your drink an interesting color."
