Rhubarb Berry Smoothie


# 2 scoops vanilla ice cream
# 6 oz plain yogurt
# 6 oz mandarin oranges w/juice
# 1/2 cup chopped rhubarb
# 1/2 cup mixed fruit (strawberries, mango, and pineapple)
# 1/4 heavy whipping cream
# 2 tbsp brown sugar
# 2 drops almond extract


In a smoothie maker, scoop in the vanilla ice cream, plain yogurt, mandarin oranges with juice, chopped rhubarb, and mixed fruit. Process until thoroughly blended and there are no chunks.
In a separate bowl, mix the whipping cream, brown sugar and almond extract. Use a blender on medium speed and continue to mix until fluffy. Add on top of the smoothie and garnish with fruit.
So simple and so yummy!


My first concoction for the evening is easily one of my favorites. The difficulty is many of the Danish dishes and drinks call for local ingredients that are not readily available at my small town grocer, or not in season right now. There was a bit of improvisation in my testing, and hunting through a few different stores for ingredients. This one hit the mark on all accounts; introducing the Rhubarb Berry Smoothie.

My mom's neighbor grows this in her backyard, so later in the year I will have baskets full of rhubarb, I cannot wait to bring this out at a family and friend picnic. I'm excited to incorporate the rhubarb as well because it seems to be so popular with a great deal of Danish dishes.
