Fresh Recipes | Tropical Rhubarb Smoothie

To streamline my mornings, I always pre-make my breakfast and lunch, so I can just grab them and go. Since my breakfast usually consists of a smoothie, pre-making involves putting everything in the blender the night before, so I can just add the liquid and blend in the morning. Unfortunately, this always seems to happen late at night (9pm? That’s late right?) when all of my energy is zapped and my creativity is gone. So, like I’ve said before, all of my smoothies are usually exactly the same.

Which brings up to this smoothie filled with rhubarb, strawberries, pineapple, carrot, greek yogurt, and coconut milk. This little smoothie is a far cry from my standard and as you probably guessed, I made it for breakfast this weekend–it’s amazing how a little sleep can lead to so much inspiration!

I will definitely be adding this smoothie to my repertoire. In fact, I may even like it a teeny tiny bit more than this one. Shh–don’t tell.

And I know what you’re probably thinking… Coconut milk? Really? I thought you said you hated¬†coconut milk. Well, I do. In curry. But somehow, it just works in this and totally enhances the tropical vibe I was going for. Makes sense right? ;)

I NEVER would have thought of adding rhubarb to my smoothie. Just this weekend I made strawberry/rhubarb pies and asked my family what else I could use my rhubarb for and they said “Well, strawberry/rhubarb cobbler”? (Isn’t that basically the same as a pie? ;-> )

My husband and I have smoothie everyday and I can’t wait to try this smoothie recipe!
