Strawberry Rhubarb Smoothie

Strawberry Rhubarb Smoothie

I love taking requests from friends. Nothing makes me happier than getting an email or text asking me to SJMify (a real term amongst my friends) a favorite dish. Often times creating a recipe for a friend takes me out of the realm of what I usually eat and allows me to get truly creative!

This smoothie is a perfect example of a friend's request leading me to a new discovery. I have never actually tried strawberry rhubarb pie in my life. Growing up, mine was not a real summer fruit pie family. We love our apple and pumpkin pie in the fall but come summer our desserts were mostly watermelon, sorbet's and frozen yogurt (yes I used to eat it). So when a very good friend texted me about an idea for a strawberry rhubarb smoothie I was excited to try to make it work. The key with this recipe is to use fresh rhubarb and frozen strawberries. I tried it in other combinations ( both fresh, fresh strawberries and frozen rhubarb) and the flavor was just not right. This smoothie is so creamy and sweet it would be the perfect dessert or healthy breakfast!
