This is definitely a "Wow, this is different!" smoothie. I had never thought to put oatmeal in a smoothie before, but after soaking, there is no stiffness to the oats at all! If using fresh blueberries, two or three ice cubes may be added to the blender to make a chillier treat.
This thirst-quenching slush is a fun way to use rhubarb. I love to serve it for special get-togethers like a ladies' brunch or holiday meal. The rosy color and tangy flavor of this favorite spring crop come through in every sip.

Strawberries, grapes and cantaloupe combine in this delightful drink that takes just seconds to whip up in the blender. "It's a good beverage for diabetics," reports Ruth Andrewson of Leavenworth, Washington.
We offer this fruity beverage to guests to add a festive touch to holiday gatherings. It pours up frothy, then separates into a dark pink base with a light foamy top. A slightly tart drink, it's wonderful with home-baked cookies.
A tantalizing combination of strawberries and orange juice, this smoothie gets its shake-like texture from low-fat buttermilk. “The recipe also works well with other fresh berries,“ says Helene Rock of Los Altos, California.
