Strawberry Rhubarb CreamsiclesWe picked rhubarb out of the garden last week and that means only one thing around our home…

Strawberry Rhubarb Creamsicles…Summer is just around the corner!

Strawberry Rhubarb Creamsicles

Rhubarb is such a trusty garden perennial that we really look forward to every May. The bright green and red stalks bring such joy to my girls because they are the first thing out of the garden – and they *love* them. So much that they eat them right out of the garden – makes my lips pucker just thinking about it!

Strawberry Rhubarb CreamsiclesLuckily these hardy plants produce quite an abundance so I’m usually able to sneak a handful of stalks for a once a year treat that is so amazing!

Strawberry Rhubarb CreamsiclesStrawberries and rhubarb are a match made in heaven. We won’t be able to pick strawberries for another few weeks, but every year I keep a couple cups from our freezer stash from the previous year just to make these creamsicles during the first long weekend of the season – strawberries picked at the height of the season are so sweet and you can’t beat the strawberry flavor!

Strawberry Rhubarb CreamsiclesMy strawberry to rhubarb ratio cuts some of the tart of the rhubarb but there is still a bite to them πŸ˜‰ Which is perfect when you swirl in fluffy fresh whipped cream – every bite has the perfect amount of sweet and tart and all 3 of my girls now inhaled theirs this weekend!

My newest purchase this year has been this 10 popsicle mold! I am in heaven! With 3 kids now eating popsicles everytime I make them, it is so nice to make a load of them at once! We still have our star pop mold that is wonderful, and I do still make toddler pops with these smaller molds that are really nice for my littlest to hold!

Happy summer to you!

We grow our own rhubarb so I've come up with creative uses for it. These creamsicles are perfect on a hot summer day.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 1/2 cups rhubarb coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups strawberries fresh or frozen, no need to chop
  • 3 TB water
  • Optional 2-3 TB raw honey for the rhubarb/strawberry mixture if you don't like a real tart bite I don't usually add this in but if your kids might be sensitive to tart go for it!
  • Β½ cup whole cream Raw preferable, and preferable not ultra pasteurized, or if you are dairy free use coconut cream, or coconut milk.
  • 2 tsp pure maple syrup
  • Β½ tsp vanilla extract

Instructions
 

  • Put the rhubarb, strawberries, and water in a small sauce pan and bring the heat up to medium/high. Use a potato masher to squish the strawberries and their juices out. Keep the mixture at a low simmer until the rhubarb is softened - shouldn't be any more than 5 minutes.
  • Pour the cooked strawberry rhubarb mixture into a blender and puree – taste test and if it is too tart you can add a couple TB of raw honey. Transfer the puree to the freezer to chill for a quick half hour.
  • Once the strawberry rhubarb mixture is cooled, whip the cream, maple syrup, and vanilla extract for about 2 minutes to make whipped cream.
  • Fold the whipped cream gently into the strawberry rhubarb mixture, and pour into popsicle molds to freeze. I like to use a spoon to scoop the popsicle mixture into the molds since it is on the thicker side from the whipped cream.
  • This recipe makes about 10 popsicles for my 10-pop mold.

  1. Yumm! I cannot wait to try this! πŸ™‚ We have TONS of rhubarb waiting to be picked out in our garden. Once I get some more raw cream this weekend I will definitely try these out on my crew!!

  2. 5 stars
    These sound define and they look so pretty! I’ve never made anything with rhubarb before….I’ll have to try these out! πŸ™‚

  3. These look so yummy Renee! I shared these on a client’s page who is a certified nutritionist and recommends traditional foods and nourishing alternatives to processed choices. Pictures are beautiful! I also pinned!

  4. We don’t grow rhubarb, but I think my daughter would love these popsicles. They look delicious! Sharing this with my sister who does grow rhubarb. (On a side note, I’m a graphic designer and I love your logo πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Donna! Oh great! The rhubarb splits really well if your sister cares to split a plant with you – they will grow pretty much anywhere with very little tending too as well! And wow – thank you for your kind words regarding my logo – that actually means a lot coming from you!

  5. I don’t grow rhubarb but now I might have to just to make these popsicles! Can you taste the tartness? I wonder if I’d like that in a popsicle…but they are pretty though! Pinned!

    1. Hi Dr. Karen! Yes this ratio of rhubarb to strawberry is still going to leave behind a tart flavor – so you could do more strawberries or add a touch of raw honey to help with that if it bothers you!

  6. I grew up eating my favorite kind of pie, strawberry rhubarb! And I also happen to enjoy anything with the word creamsicle in it. This recipe looks on point and will probably transport me back to childhood! Thank you for sharing and can’t wait to try this out this summer. πŸ™‚

  7. I made these yesterday and treated myself to one after work today.. absolutely amazing! I wish my mom had this recipe when I was little :p

  8. I love the strawberry and rhubarb combination! Do you think it would work with coconut whipped cream? We’re dairy free πŸ™‚

  9. 5 stars
    Strawberry rhubarb has been such a nostalgic flavor for me from growing up with visits to upstate NY and having my grandma make strawberry rhubarb jam. These would be wonderful to have that memory brought up!

  10. I’m so jealous that you get rhubarb in your garden. I’ve seriously tried 6 different plants, in 6 different locations in my yard, and none of them have survived. I know it grows in my climate (I’m in Colorado) because I see it growing around, but for some reason it just doesn’t like my yard. Oh well, at least I can easily get it from the store, because I am going to have to make these popsicles!

  11. Rhubarb is one of the fruits I remember eating a lot as a child – my Mum was always making rhubarb crumble. So I grew up to quite like its tart flavour and it’s a proper comfort food for me. I love the sound of these, with the strawberries, too. I’ll keep a lookout for some rhubarb in the shops and put these on my list to make. Beautiful!

  12. You’ve officially gotten me pumped up for rhubarb season! These are the dreamiest creamsicles I can think of. I’ve always preferred berry to orange πŸ˜‰

    These look so good, and luckily the first of my rhubarb is starting to show up! And I love the picture of your daughter eating rhubarb raw, takes me back to childhood when I used to eat it raw from the garden with my Grandpa!

  14. 5 stars
    Good for you for growing rhubarb in your garden – I have not tried growing that one yet. These creamsicles looks heavenly, Renee!

  15. These look so delicious and I just love the swirls! I’m excited that my girl is old enough for popsicles this year and I plan on making many flavors! Pinning this one to try!

  16. All the beautiful Rhubarb recipes! It doesn’t grow here in Hawaii! But maybe next year when I’m back on the mainland I can get in on the the fun. These looks so good.
