A festively-colored juice that’s tasty and nutritious is sure to get you in the holiday spirit. The rhubarb, generally thought of as a pie ingredient, goes nicely with the apple, ginger and kale — and it’s good for you too. Rhubarb is a good source of vitamins A, B and K, and because it’s a stalk, it’s rich in minerals like iron, copper and calcium.
This festive drink is great for Christmas morning along with breakfast, or any other occasion this season. If you’re making a rhubarb pie save the leftovers for this delicious juice.
