Hi everyone! We are back from our vacation in Germany. Four weeks seems like a long time, but it went by really fast. It does, however, feel like it has been forever since I have had time to work on my blog! I’ve missed you.
I am starting back easy with this strawberry cucumber rhubarb smoothie – healthy and perfectly refreshing for the summertime. Normally smoothies can be a little too sweet for me, so I love this strawberry cucumber rhubarb smoothie recipe because the chopped rhubarb adds a slightly tart flavor to it. You can add more strawberries or orange juice to increase the sweetness of this strawberry cucumber rhubarb smoothie.
Since I have been away, Leila started walking! She is a pro now. New challenges like locking doors and now leaving pots on the stove have quickly come up. Never a dull moment! It is so much fun watching her grow into a beautiful little girl.
During our vacation, I worked out less than what I can count on one hand, so I am happy to have my gym back. Unfortunately, I am really out of shape coming back from such a long vacation. I also gained 10 pounds from eating so much delicious German food over there….yikes! Oh well, it was worth it.
Hope you enjoy this smoothie recipe 🙂 Until next time…
p.s. I bought these stainless steel straws and LOVE them. No more wasteful plastic straws!
- ½ cup chopped rhubarb
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- ½ cup chopped cucumber

- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend well.
Welcome back! Bet you had a wonderful time — so nice to take a few weeks off, isn’t it? Anyway, this smoothie looks so nice — great combo of flavors. Thanks!
I’ll be in Berlin and Munich in September – would love your suggestions!!
Haven’t been to Berlin, but you must see the English Gardens in Munich! 🙂 Have fun!!
This looks so refreshing!
