A Perfect Pantry

Rhubarb Blitz2Go Shake

    This breakfast shake tastes just like rhubarb crumble. The rhubarb in our vegetable garden is producing beautifully right now and I have been making crumble with it regularly. I had some stalks left over this week so decided to make the crumble in a liquid form.

    This recipe takes a little extra preparation to cook the rhubarb before adding it. You could cook a whole bunch and freeze it in portions ready for your smoothies or to add to muffins or other baked items as needed.

    I love the rich colour of freshly picked rhubarb; it has a jewel like quality that is enhanced by the toffee like fragrance when you slice it. The smell reminds me of toffee apple yet the flavour can be sharp. I have added almond, cinnamon and honey to mellow the flavour and add a little sweetness to this shake. I hope that you enjoy it.

    Rhubarb contains wonderful amounts of vitamins K, C and minerals calcium and manganese.*
