Strawberry Rhubarb Creamsicles

Recipe from Raisinggenerationnourished.com

Ingredients:

2½ cups rhubarb, coarsely chopped

2 cups strawberries (fresh or frozen, no need to chop)

3 tablespoons water

Optional 2-3 tablespoons 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!)

½ cup whole cream (Raw preferable, and preferably not ultra-pasteurized, or if you are dairy free use coconut cream.)

2 tsp pure maple syrup

½ tsp vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Put the rhubarb, strawberries, and water in a small saucepan 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.
  2. Pour the cooked strawberry rhubarb mixture into a blender and puree – taste test and if it is too tart you can add a couple tablespoons of raw honey. Transfer the puree to the freezer to chill for a quick half hour.
  3. Once the strawberry rhubarb mixture is cooled, whip the cream, maple syrup, and vanilla extract for about 2 minutes to make whipped cream.
  4. 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 with the whipped cream.
