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


  • 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


  • 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.

"Deb F. I make this dessert all throughout the year with frozen rhubarb from the garden. I use frozen mixed berries for an extra special berry flavor. A nice light ending to any dinner."

"My family always makes this with raspberries and we devour it. We call it Raspberry Fool. I can't wait to try this as I much prefer strawberry rhubarb to raspberry, however, I must call it Strawberry Rhubarb Fool."

"Quite honestly, only got as far as the combination of the fruits (suddenly realized we had no more cream in the fridge!!). Anyway, we really enjoyed what we did have over vanilla ice cream so much that I made a double batch of the "sauce" later --mmmmmmm!

"OK, so I modified a bit. Maybe a lot. I pureed the rhubarb with a little bit of sugar, blended it into homeade whipped cream, and used it as a topping for fresh strawberry shortcake. It was an instant hit! My crew loves strawberry rhubarb pie, and this had all the great, fresh taste without the heat of the oven!"

"An absolutey wonderful recipe. I changed the recipe so it would make enough to take to a dinner party. Also, for those who don't care for things too sweet....I cut down the sugar so much that I used only about a half a cup all together!! Best try it before putting in the whipped cream!"
