Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie Smoothie


I’m all about healthy foods with dessert names. Apple Pie Oatmeal, Chocolate Cherry Frosty, Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie Smoothie.

It makes healthy sound sexy. And let’s be real. Healthy can afford to bring sexy back. I’m a firm believer that healthy can and should be delicious and appealing, which is why I take the time every week to make delicious, nutritious recipes, take beautiful pictures, and share them with you here.

With summer around the bend, I’ve also been making more smoothies and taking advantage of this quick and easy way to load up on my fruit + veggie intake.

I’ve been dying to get my hands on rhubarb this spring because it’s not one of my go-to vegetables but I love eating seasonally to support local farmers (and my wallet!) so I wanted to give it a shot.

Sweet strawberries (also seasonal this time of year) and tart rhubarb pair perfectly together so I whipped them up in this seasonal smoothie.
