It is the day after Norway day, and I were out celebrating with some lovely colleagues! We even had a Scottish guy coming over to our table and he sang a short little drinking song in Norwegian, now how about that?! Love it!
And here's something else that I am...quite fond of to say the least! I made this little sweet treat the other night, and enjoyed it yesterday morning along with my breakfast. Deliciously zingy and just sweet enough!
Rhubarb, Strawberry & Lemon Smoothie
(Serves 3-4, about 130-100 calories each)
200 g rhubarb, chopped
1 tsp dry mint (or a few sprigs of fresh mint)
3 tbsp agave syrup
2 lemons, zest and juice
250 g strawberries, halved
- Boil up about 2 cups of water and have in a medium pan along with lemon zest, rhubarb, agave, mint and both lemon juice and zest. Cover and simmer for about ten minutes until the rhubarb is starting to fall apart.
- Take the pan off the heat and add either 2 cups worth of ice, or ice cold water, along with the strawberries and whizz until you have a smoothie. If it's too thick for your liking, add a little bit more water! Leave in the fridge to cool for a few hours before serving.
After the picture was taken, I stirred it up, and it tasted delicious! Natural yogurt with oats served with smoothie, mmm!
You can have this on it's own, garnished with either fruit or mint leaves, serve it topped with champagne or use it as a yogurt topping! It's deliciously fresh and not too sweet!
And here's my little pile of Norwegian sweets that I've got, there is more in the munchy cupboard, but it couldn't fit in the picture...oops!
This will probably last me until christmas! Haha, everything in moderation *smiles*
