Rhubarb smoothie made with frozen (from raw) rhubarb to help alkalise and revive you. Its tangy and sharp with a sweet after taste and a cooling minty vibe yeh!
So this August I was lucky enough to be helping my dear friend with maintaining her mum’s garden. In which she had some amazingly HUGE Rhubarb so I helped harvest some and in return my friend gave me a massive bag full for the freezer. I then forgot about it until today! So I started out thinking I would make some rhubarb ice cream in my nutribullet, but it turned into a smoothie, it was delicious and very cooling and soothing to my delicate tummy, helping alkalise and soothe my eczema.
