Rhubarb Smoothie

I hope everyone had a great Easter.

 Master O loved his Easter egg hunt.

A while back I mentioned that my veggie patch was full on Rhubarb and I didn't know what to do with it all!
 Recently I went to a cafe on Waiheke Island and had a beautiful Rhubarb Smoothie.
I came home and googled Rhubarb and found out that it is full of wonderful things.
High in Vitamin A and K, plus Calcium and great for the immune system among other things. 
You can read more about it here.
I looked up Rhubarb Smoothies and after trying a few and adapting them here is the recipe I made up, it is enough for 3 glasses of smoothie.

1 1/2 cups of Rhubarb chopped to about an inch each (Fresh or frozen)
1 1/2 cups of  Strawberries (Fresh or frozen)
1 1/2 cups of Almond milk or 1/2 a cup of natural yoghurt and 1 1/2 cups of water
1 tablespoon of honey (optional)
2 frozen bananas (You can use fresh bananas but the smoothie is not as creamy)
2 teaspoons of Chia Seeds (Optional) They are a great super food you can read more here.

It is really yummy.
