It’s getting warm! Summer is almost here – even where I live!
And that means… it’s time for ice cream! Oh, I have so many ice cream ideas, I’m really glad that we finally have the right temperatures for ice cream and popsicles!
Actually, rhubarb is a spring vegetable. Yeah, that’s right, it’s a vegetable, not a fruit. And a pretty healthy one, too. If this was a health blog, I could tell you a lot about it’s benefits, like the high amounts of dietary fiber, it’s vitamin B, A and K content, antioxidants and calcium. But this is just a playful blog, so you don’t even have to let people know that they are eating a healthy treat…
… cause nobody will notice. They taste that good!
Strawberry Rhubarb Popsicles
- 2 cups strawberries
- 1 small stalk rhubarb
- 3 tbsp almond or coconut milk
- optional: 1/2 cup xylit (or regular sugar) for the sweet tooth… *
Mix all the ingredients in your blender. Fill in popsicle forms and freeze for about 6h or overnight.
* NOTE: If you add sugar/xylit or not depends on your own sweet tooth and on the sweetness of your strawberries which varies a lot! When you try the mixture, it should be slightly over sweetened, because the frozen mixture always tastes slightly less sweet.
And you have to hurry up to make this treat – rhubarb season is almost over!!! It usually lasts until the end of june.
