season's first rhubarb last night. We have been enjoying fruit smoothies recently and I decided it was time to see how rhubarb would work in a smoothie. I gave it a whirl today and thought I would share our yummy 'concoction' with you. :)
Rhubarb Strawberry Fruit Smoothie
2 c cleaned and chopped rhubarb
1/2 c water
1 carton strawberries (cleaned with leaves & stems removed)
1/4 - 1/3 c sugar
2-4 c ice (depending on desired consistency)
Bring water to boiling in a medium saucepan and then add the rhubarb. Boil for 5 min and remove from heat. Allow it to cool completely.
Pour the cooked rhubarb and liquid, strawberries and sugar into a blender and puree the fruit. Add the ice and puree until smooth.
Happy Backyard Eating! :D
