Frozen Rhubarb Slush Recipe

Frozen Rhubarb Slush Recipe

Sweet and refreshing, this pretty pink slush stores well in the freezer, so it's great to have on hand for summer guests. Just thaw and add ginger ale or lemon-lime soda. Aahhh! —Danielle Brandt, Ruthton, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + freezing YIELD:22 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 cups diced fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen unsweetened strawberries
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 package (3 ounces) strawberry gelatin
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 11 cups ginger ale, chilled
  • Rhubarb curls, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a Dutch oven, bring the rhubarb, strawberries, sugar and water to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5-8 minutes or until rhubarb is tender. Press through a sieve; discard pulp. Stir in gelatin and lemon juice until dissolved.
  • 2. Transfer to a freezer container and freeze, stirring occasionally, until firm. May be frozen for up to 3 months.
  • 3. To use frozen rhubarb mixture: In a punch bowl or several pitchers, combine equal amounts of rhubarb mixture and ginger ale. Or for one serving, combine 1/2 cup rhubarb mixture and 1/2 cup ginger ale in a glass. Garnish with rhubarb curls if desired. Serve immediately. Yield: 22 servings (1 cup each).
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.

"I liked this but it took a lot longer to freeze than I thought it would. Could not serve the day I wanted to. I used diet ginger ale to cut the sweetness a little bit. Very refreshing!"

"This is absolutely wonderful...my kids really enjoy this. I usually don't buy ginger ale, so we either just scoop into a dish and eat like italian ice or I'll mix it with lemonade for a slushier treat. Either way....it's just so refreshing!"

"This is incredible! (It would even be great as an adult beverage- add vodka or rum!) I love rhubarb, though couldn't imagine drinking it, but you can't distinguish the rhubarb taste with the strawberry and lemon added."
