Chill more than menopausal symptoms with delightful Rhubarb Granitas

In our mission to help horses and foals used and cast off by the pregnant mare’s urine industry that make drugs like Premarin cream and tablets, we urge women to shun them and the cruelty that goes with them, and find an alternative to ease menopausal symptoms.

I went on a rhubarb recipe spree when I learned in an article by Jane Allin that properties of the rhubarb plant do just that — ease menopausal symptoms.

So, how about a icy cool rhubarb granita? A granita, just in case you don’t know, is an Italian-style flavored drink featuring crushed ice.

I found the recipe below at One Green Planet and couldn’t resist sharing it with you. It’s vegan. Naturally.

Oh, and never, ever eat the leaves of a rhubarb plant. Chop rhubarb leaves off straight away and get rid of them.
