Last week in my CSA box I got 3 stalks of rhubarb and I used two in the Strawberry Rhubarb bars I post on Saturday, but I had one left and I thought what I could possibly do with 1 stalk of rhubarb? I didn’t want it to got to waste it and then I thought, Smoothie Monday! Yah, so I decided to make a Strawberry Rhubarb Smoothie!
This was the perfect idea! The smoothie is creamy, smooth, perfect amount of strawberries with a pinch of tang from the rhubarb and to sweetened it up I used a little bit of honey and vanilla greek yogurt. The smoothie exceeded my expectations and now I need more rhubarb because I need to make this again!!
Have you ever had rhubarb? It’s quite interesting if you ask me. It’s kind of sour, but yet mixed in with other fruit, it tastes really good, plus it’s loaded with vitamins and fiber. I can see why there are so many rhubarb recipes out there. I’m going to have to expand my horizon and try it out in other recipes. This past week was the first time I ever tried rhubarb.

Well my Friends, I am writing this on Sunday morning and I have to get going, I have a date for the gym. It has been forever since I have gone to the gym. I can see a little stomach flab, ok a lot of stomach flab and I so want to look good before popping on a bathing suit this summer, so expect some seriously healthy recipes in the weeks to come. But I say that now and a cookie craving will hit. lol
Have a super great week!
