Rhubarb Strawberry Smoothie! A Great Summer Drink With Typical Scandinavian Flavors

Smoothies are great! So fast to make and delicious healthy ingredients.  One of my favorite smoothies is a Strawberry Rhubarb Smoothie.  If you have never had a strawberry and a rhubarb combination, you might be pleasantly surprised how good this smoothie tastes!

 Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh chopped rhubarb cut up (or use frozen)
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries(or use frozen)
  • 1 cup of  Icelandic yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar, honey or agave nectar  
  •  1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Kitchen Utensils
  • cutting board
  • kitchen knife
  • measuring cup
  • mixing spoon
  • blender   
In blender, place all ingredients. Cover; blend with on-and-off pulses until pureed. Pour into 2 drinking glasses. Serve immediately. 

If you have your own favorite yogurt it will work great too!

An alternative fruit is to substitute raspberries for the strawberries. 

A bowl of summer strawberries for your smoothie!
In the winter time, this smoothie is great with frozen strawberries and frozen rhubarb. This makes a frothier smoothie.

In the summertime, sometimes I like to add a couple of ice to this delicious smoothie too!
