Rhubarb Strawberry Smoothie

Around here smoothies are king in the mornings, and some afternoons too. We use frozen fruit for smoothies and go through it lickety-split. Earlier this week while stocking up on frozen berries, I ran across frozen rhubarb, and had to take the opportunity to try a Rhubarb Strawberry Smoothie combination.

Frozen rhubarb? Who knew.

The frozen rhubarb reminded me of my friend, Julie, who has just tweeted about needing a recipe for a rhubarb strawberry pie, which made me instantly think of another friend, Georgia, and her drool-worthy recipe for Rhubarb Strawberry Pie that I’ve been pining for since discovering it last year.

I ramble.

Anyway, I put two and two together, and since I’m trying to forgo the major sweets right now because I dread short sleeve season almost as bad as matching socks, okay, maybe worse than matching socks, I decided give the Rhubarb Strawberry Smoothie combo a go.

Using frozen fruit makes smoothies quick and easy in the mornings when I’m half awake, but you can easily use fresh fruit instead.

To the frozen fruit, add honey (substitute sugar or another sweetener if needed), milk, and acai or pomegranate juice. Adjust the sweetness to your liking.

Blend everything up until smooth.

    Oh my goodness Amy I can NOT wait to try this!! Strawberry-rhubarb is one of my favorite combos, and I’ve never thought to make it into a smoothie before! Will be making it this week!

    This looks so good! I just bought some fresh rhubarb at the market, but haven’t been able to figure out what to make. My hubby hates it (with a passion) so I knew I had to make something just for me, and this looks like the perfect solution! :)

    i bet that tastes like pie . . . well pie without crust . . . and flour . . . butter . . . sugar . . . ok so i think it must taste like a rhubarb-strawberry smoothie

      People have been posting recipes for “muffin” smoothies where they add oats to give it that bread-ish taste. I haven’t tried it yet, but I bet you could do something similar to get the taste of pie crust without as much butter/sugar/etc ;-D

    NUM! My hubby always complains that our rhubarb goes to waste after the first month. I think I will be freezing it for smoothies! Best part, I don’t have to buy it. Thank you for sharing!

    I have never seen frozen rhubarb. I’m going to have to have a chat with our local store manager about that because I want one of these gorgeous smoothies.

    This has me craving rhubarb in a huge way. I’m not familiar with Publix brand, but I’m hoping I’ll be able to find some frozen rhubarb at a grocery store around here. And you can bet I’m going to be freezing a bunch of it as soon as it’s in season!

    Now I know where to get rhubarb – Publix! Up north we used to just grow it our back yard. Down south – not so easy to find!

    I’ve had a bit of a rhubarb thing going on since it’s been in season. We even have some growing in our garden. This smoothie looks so refreshing and a perfect way to curb the old sweet tooth. Might have to get the blender going ASAP!

    Awesome smoothie recipe. Love using frozen fruit in smoothies because they are always perfectly ripe and sweet.

    I thought I invented the Strawberry Rhubarb smoothie today, but I guess not.

    Is the frozen rhubarb blanched first, when I use fresh rhubarb do I use it just like that or blanch it?

    says

    I am waiting for my Nutribullet to get here and I can’t wait to try this. I have a TON of frozen rhubarb. I usually only use it to make pies, but I think that this would be a much more calorie conscious way to enjoy it :)

    I grew up with rhubarb, sand cherries and choke cherries. I love the bard and the honey
    is such a good way to sweeten. Mom had the best plants but they don’t live well just anywhere.

    I have lyme and mold issues. I can only eat fruits, veggies, and nuts for now to get the toxins out of my body. I tried my rhubarb with an orange, an apple, whey powder, broccoli, green vegetable powder and kale. DELICIOUS.
