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.
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.
What a pretty color huh? I so enjoy eating pretty colored food. I think you will too.
