My first green smoothie recipe to make! Very yummy and energizing. My favorite fruit smoothie was always Strawberry Banana with a bit of orange, so I added the spinach and it was a winner! This smoothie keeps well overnight in the fridge for a great ‘to go’ breakfast.
I simply must have some nice bright Rhubarb in the spring. It’s tanginess tempered with sweetness is the best way to appreciate the unique flavor of the stalks. Do not be afraid of the raw rhubarb- I did the research and everything I could find indicates that it is only the leaves that are toxic. That being said, raw rhubard is extremely sour, thus, it is usually cooked down with a ton of sugar to render it edible. So I was searching for a way to prepare raw rhubarb and I ran across the recipe for this Rhubarb Compote on Culinate.com. So I took it from there to create a raw version of the delicious memories of Rhubarb pies and crumbles.
