Strawberry Rhubarb Smoothie

Vegalicious wishes everyone a health and happy Valentine’s Day tomorrow, offering a tasty fruit smoothie to keep a smile on your face and high energy for the day.

Our rhubarb is just beginning to come above ground. But luckily we have some from last season nicely frozen in the freezer. Our strawberries were also frozen, as they do not ripen before early summer. We’re looking forward to having this again in the spring and early summer.
