Strawberry Rhubarb Smoothie

In my efforts to be creative with the HUGE bunch some rhubarb my husband recently picked up from the market, I thought I would try incorporating it into some of my regular meals. Well… ok, so a smoothie isn’t super creative, but hey – rhubarb in a smoothie sounds good right??

Strawberry Rhubarb Smoothie

1/4 cup rhubarb

3/4 cup frozen strawberries

3/4 cup almond or coconut milk

1/4 cup coconut water

the juice squeezed from half of a lemon

1 tbsp hemp seeds

1 tsp maca powder

sprinkle of cinnamon

Blend it all up and enjoy!

I’m still trying to figure out what to do with the rest of the rhubarb. I’ve made a few things with it (like the chia pudding I posted recently), and Terry made a rhubarb & oat crumble that was tasty-rific! But they all seem to be breakfast-like foods. Any ideas to make something like a casserole or sautée or even salad out of it? We like making our rhubarb lentil soup, but with Terry not currently eating onion or lentils, we’re looking to try something new. Let me know if you have any suggestions =)

  1. Looks good! I’ve recently discovered no more safe hemp around here, so I am missing it a lot. So funny how different our seasons are! We haven’t had rhubarb for months.

    You might like these; I’m not sure if your husband could have them though with his diet he is following: http://bit.ly/19LYu7I

    1. No more safe hemp? Huh… I’m not sure I want to know what that is referring to. Maybe I don’t have safe hemp either :/
      Haha – yes, our seasons are a smidge different now ;p
      And he CAN eat those awesome looking muffins! I’ll have to make them for him – thanks so much for pointing this recipe out =)

  2. I want to know about unsafe hemp too! ???

    My mom would love this smoothie. She used to make us strawberry rhubarb pie. Don’t you love it when smoothies taste like pie filling? Enjoy your rhubarb! I’m sure you’ll come up with something completely amazing and delicious!
