In terms of flavor profiles, most smoothies are very similar; most are based on sweet, fruity flavors sometimes accentuated by dairy.  The  Rhubarb-Citrus Smoothie is a smoothie of an entirely different breed.  This Instructable will demonstrate how to make a Rhubarb-Citrus Smoothie,  an acidic and slightly bitter yet sweet beverage that breaks the norm of docile, bland smoothies that we so regularly enjoy.  Sip one of these smoothies on a hot summer day and it is guaranteed to satisfy.

  • 2 pounds Rhubarb (fresh or frozen)
