I have been dreaming up things to make with my precious rhubarb for a while now.

At our first house, we had a huge rhubarb plant and I never took full advantage of it. Now we have nothing but sand.

We moved last December, right after Christmas, into the house we built and we are nowhere close to being able to plant anything besides a few trees. We built on a random piece of land and not a lot and so we have a lot to do before I can even think about growing anything edible.

I never had room for a real garden in our first house, but we had a big rhubarb plant, raspberries, and some herbs and I am really missing it! I’ve never really loved gardening, but there is something extremely satisfying about growing things you can eat.

So my mom brought me some rhubarb from one of their neighbors a little while ago and I knew I wasn’t going to have time to do anything with it right away. I cleaned and chopped it and stuck it in the freezer for later.

I realize rhubarb is out of season at this point, but if you’re like me and you’ve got some stocked up in the freezer, you need to try these milkshakes. Around here, you can also find frozen rhubarb in the grocery stores.

These are seriously good.

They are like a strawberry rhubarb crisp and the ice cream you would top it with combined. They’re sweet, and tart, and creamy with extra vanilla flavour from the french vanilla ice cream and the vanilla extract. Roasting the fruit brings out such incredible flavours, you’re not going to want to miss out on these!

    I planted a large garden the first few years after we moved to our current home. I had a love/hate relationship with it. It was tremendously satisfying to have the fresh produce and know that I grew it myself, but I wasn’t very good at it. I would forget to water and weed it, plant things a little too late, harvest too early, etc. I decided it wasn’t for me and found a good local source for my summer fruits and veggies. 🙂 I love strawberry rhubarb anything, so I’ll be trying this asap. Thanks! Pinned!

      Thanks! I don’t think I could handle a big garden, though I love the idea of it! I might have to wait until my toddler is old enough to do the watering and weeding…. and that way I don’t have to do all the work myself!

    I have never ever had rhubarb, can you believe it?! I keep seeing all these delicious recipes but I have never tried it, I don’t even think I have seen it at my grocery. Maybe it doesn’t grow in the south? I need to get my hands on some because these milkshakes look amazing!

      Ya know, it’s something I hated as a kid. I think most kids do. It might even technically be a vegetable. It’s a little tart, but sugar fixes that 🙂
