I was inspired by the strawberry-rhubarb pie someone just posted in the recipe section. I have a rhubarb patch I’ve never picked yet until today, so it seemed like a great time to experiment with a new shake recipe! We really loved it. I remember eating stalks of rhubarb dipped in sugar as a kid. This is much nicer.

Recipe Directions

1. Blend it all up in the Vitamix and enjoy!

oooh, almond butter would be great. I usually just use whatever nuts I have onhand. Macadamia would rock, too, I think.

miaculpa - this is FANTASTIC! It's perfect. The smell was so nostalgic it almost made me cry. I even added some swiss chard to round out the meal and it was still amazing,so thank you!!!1!

I also wanted to pass along an easy use for the leaves for those who are cutting it out of the garden - with your knife, slice off the leaves right there and use them to mulch around the plant. An old Vermonter taught me that.

leaves and roots are poison, stalks are not.

So you can eat rhubarb stalks but not the leaves?

I am SO glad everyone enjoyed this!

I was amazed when I concocted it, too. I cannot wait for my rhubarb to come out again this June! (sigh)

I have just finished enjoying this fabulous shake, what a taste sensation! An absolutely wonderful way to enjoy my fresh rhubarb. I didn't have fresh dates, so substituted dry and found that this was sweet enough for me without adding any agave. I too forgot the cinnamon, but it was fabulous anyway. Thanks so much for sharing this.

Oooh, I'm excited because I have some rhubarb in the garden and I thought it would be impossible to eat raw. I will give it a try soon.

Hope everyone knows the leaves are poisonous!
