Salads: We had lots of salads this month, just like June. With the combination of swiss chard, green leaf and red leaf lettuce, you are bound to have a delicious salad every time!
Grilled Summer Squash: We also had our share of grilled zucchini and summer squash. Such a simple way to eat squash during grilling season: slice, grill, and sprinkle with a little extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper.
Smoothies: Summer in New England always calls for smoothies! We always have on hand fresh greens, fresh or frozen berries, avocado and coconut milk to some yummy delicious-ness. Everyone here loves them!
Homemade Strawberry Banana “Ice Cream”
We had a whole bunch of bananas that got too ripe too fast this month so I cut them up and froze them on parchment paper lined cookie sheets. Then I transferred them to a ziploc bag for later use. I took out the strawberry + coconut milk cubes that I froze from our strawberry picking in June, combined it with frozen banana and a splash of almond milk in the Vitamix, and it made the most delicious strawberry banana frozen treat!
