Summer Specials from Chef Nate

Green Smoothie Pops
Blend your favorite summer fruit (we like to use mango, kiwi, nectarines, and/or peaches) with your favorite greens (we like chard, spinach, or kale) and freeze into popsicles.
This one had: 1 apple (with skin on), 1 banana, 1 mango, 1 kiwi, 4 big leaves of rainbow chard and 2 cups of water. This made quite a few pops! For more ideas/recipes for green smoothies (that can be made into summertime pops), check out this site.

Nate's Fried Zucchini
1 Garden Zucchini - sliced (I had fun using a mandolin slicer)
Garlic Powder
*Heat a little olive oil on the stove. Add zucchini and sprinkle as much garlic powder and basil as you want. Cook/saute on medium heat until it looks good to you.

Blueberry Lemonade
(This is one of Judita's recipes)
1 1/4 cups of blueberries
3 cups of water
1 cup of ice cubes
1/2 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup of agave

Puree 1 cup of the blueberries in a food processor. Transfer to a pitcher and stir in water, ice, lemon juice, agave and remaining blueberries.
