This simple smoothie is perfect for spring when the farmers’ market is overflowing with rhubarb and strawberries. We love the tang of rhubarb and choose not to sweeten our purée, but you can add a natural sweetener if you prefer.
"The cooked rhubarb in this colorful smoothie contains many powerful antioxidants (including lycopene). Rhubarb also provides Calcium and Vitamin K which contribute to a healthy digestive tract. A perfect way to start the day."- Erika Weissenborn B.Sc. FNH, CHN
