I came up with this smoothie based on suggestions and comments from some of the ladies on the Buzz. A great way to use up that frozen rhubarb in the back of the freezer.

I did not have vanilla yogurt on hand, I used a half cup nonfat greek yogurt and added a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. I also did not add the food coloring. One of the best smoothies I've had in a long time. Read More

I was pleasantly surprised. My husband really likes rhubarb and so I keep trying things with it. Made just like the recipe except the red food coloring and added a few frozen strawberries. Thanks for this recipe it is a great different way to use all the rhubarb that my husband is growing. Read More

This was really good. I didn't have cranberry juice so I used orange juice instead. I also didn't have any food coloring so it turned out a light peach color instead of red. Thanks Sarah-May! Read More

Thanks for the recipe. I had never tried rhubarb before but bought some frozen and this recipe was a great first into. The only reason i didn t do 5 stars was cuz a cup of juice made it a lil too runny for me. Otherwise awesome. Read More

I LOVE rhubarb but I think a full cup of cranberry juice made it too tart even for me and overwhelmed the rhubarb flavor, which always bugs me about so many rhubarb recipes (I want to taste it!). I think on my next try I’m going to cut the cranberry down maybe by half and add soy milk. Overall I think it’s a good start and could be perfect with some tinkering. Thanks for sharing! Read More

5 stars because even my picky middle child devoured this without noticing the banana!!! I only made a couple of changes usisng what i had on hand a fzn banana and OJ instead of apple juice. We love smoothies and this is most definately a keeper for us! I made 2 batches and used my freezable smoothie cups to freeze leftovers:) Read More
