Rhubarb and ginger smoothie!Posted: May 30, 2015
I’m not going to post a picture (you know what a smoothie looks like!) or make this a long drawn out post. I just had a smoothie containing a bit of fresh rhubarb from the garden and it was really delicious, so I thought I’d quickly jot down the ingredients.
Soya milk (maybe 2/3 pint?)
a small carrot (I like thick smoothies and carrots work really well to bulk them up and add extra vitamins – probably don’t work in a lower powered blender though)
a sliver of ginger (I’d frozen a box of these to add to smoothies, which works really well. They also grate into food more easily when frozen!)
about 3 frozen plums (I say “about” because they’d been sliced and were kind of lumped together)
1 Tbs flax seeds (optional, for omega 3 goodliness)
A section of rhubarb stick, about 5cm long? Not huge, but the stick was quite fat!
All that got blended up in my high-powered blender and made just over a pint. It was delicious, one of the nicest smoothies I’ve had for a while, not too sweet, not too sharp, a bit creamy from the soya milk and really fruity!
