Tangy Strawberry Rhubarb Milkshake

I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t like Rhubarb, and a Rhubarb Milkshake, even with the strawberries, doesn’t sound great to me. But I know that many people love it.

I found this yummy recipe over on Babble.com. It does take some pre-planning to make, as the rhubarb and strawberries need to be cooked first.

Rhubarb has the texture of celery until it’s cooked. Here are the ingredients:

  • 3-4 Large Stalks of Rhubarb, chopped into 1″ pieces
  • 2 cups of strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Vanilla Ice Cream, as needed

Add the water, rhubarb, strawberries and sugar to a saucepan and heat over medium to low heat, stirring often. When the rhubarb is soft and the mixture is thick, taste it. If it needs more sweetening, add some more sugar. Move it to a bowl, and refrigerate until completely chilled.

Measure the strawberry-rhubarb blend, then add it to a blender. Add double the amount of ice cream (a 2:1 mix) to the blender. Add a splash of milk. Blend until smooth. Add more ice cream to thicken or more milk to thin the mix.

Chopped RhubarbServe the Strawberry-Rhubarb Milkshake immediately, preferably in a chilled glass.
