Strawberry Rhubarb Smoothie

Strawberry Rhubarb Smoothie

Take advantage of rhubarb, a red-stalked relative of celery that serves as a delicious contrast to sweet and citrus flavors, this spring while fresh stalks are out in farmer’s markets and supermarket produce stands. Low in calories and sugar and high in nutrients, rhubarb is a great addition to a healthy spring diet.

I prefer the pure tangy taste that you get without adding sugar but if you like your smoothies a bit sweeter try adding a teaspoon of honey or some very ripe melon (like cantaloupe or honeydew).

Ingredients

1 ripe banana
1 stalk fresh rhubarb
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1 cup almond milk
2 tablespoons unsweetened non-fat yogurt

Extras (If you have them, these would also be great in this smoothie.)
raspberries
melon (honeydew or cantaloupe)
mango
