I grabbed a few stocks of rhubarb at the farmer’s market and I was thinking of a smoothie since I never use cooked fruit in a smoothie. I think the rhubarb cost me all of $1 buck. It was good for some true summer flavors.
4 stocks of rhubarb
3 tbs sugar
1/4 cup water
1 cup strawberries, chopped and frozen
1 cup strawberry yogurt
splash of water/milk/juice
Chop rhubarb into small pieces and cook over medium heat with sugar and water.
Cook 3-5 minutes until rhubarb is soft and cooked down.
Remove from the heat and let cool.
Blend together rhubarb, strawberries, yogurt, and a splash of water.
Add more water/milk/juice if it is too thick.
I liked this one. It was more work than my usual smoothie, but it was so good. It reminded me of dessert! I cooked the rhubarb the night before so it really wasn’t a ton of work the morning-of.
What an awesome idea. I bought rhubarb for my first time this year and made an ice cream soda with rhubarb simple syrup. Now i want more so I can make a smoothie, too!
Strawberry and rhubarb smoothie looks and sounds delicious.. Love it!! 😀
