Strawberry Rhubarb Cream Recipe

Strawberry Rhubarb Cream Recipe

A friend gave me this recipe a long time ago. It’s rich and creamy yet refreshing. I make this often in early summer when rhubarb is readily available.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1-1/2 teaspoons sugar, divided
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons water
  • 1/2 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
  • Additional sliced fresh strawberries, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a small saucepan, combine the rhubarb, 2 tablespoons sugar and water. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until tender. Transfer to a small bowl; cool to room temperature.
  • 2. Place strawberries and remaining sugar in a food processor; cover and process until pureed. Stir into rhubarb mixture. Fold in whipped cream. Spoon into two parfait glasses or dessert dishes. Cover and refrigerate until chilled. Garnish with additional berries if desired. Yield: 2 servings.
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.
