Rhubarb and Strawberries Make (Dairy-Free!) Pink Sweet Tart Ice Cream

This is a great summery dessert recipe that makes use of our abundant supply of rhubarb. It is sweet, tart, refreshing, and a tasty way to cool off on a hot day, and yes, as brightly colored as any sweet tart, although naturally so!

3 cups sliced rhubarb
2 cups sliced strawberries (previously frozen works fine – that is what I used)
1 cup coconut milk
½ cup honey

Begin by preheating your oven to 375. Spread your sliced rhubarb on a baking pan and bake for 30-40 minutes, until tender. Allow to cool slightly and then process in your food processor along with your (thawed) strawberries. Place the food processor bowl and its contents in the refrigerator until the mixture is completely cooled, then blend in your coconut milk and honey. Pour into your ice cream maker and freeze according to your manufacturer’s instructions. Place in a freezer-safe container and freeze until hardened, about three hours, then enjoy some cool fruity deliciousness on a hot summer day. Way better than sweet tarts, and way better for you. And yes, Nick and I did eat the whole batch in one day, just like we polished off the fro-yo.

  2. I never even thought of using coconut milk for ice cream. Fantastic idea.

      Aroy D is the best brand I have found. It contains no additives, just coconut milk, and has good texture and taste.

    This looks yummy. I’d make it if I had an ice cream maker. I wonder if it would work if I just put frozed fruit in the food processor with the coconut milk and other ingredients.
    I’d love you to share this recipe on my Monday Real Food 101 on http://www.ruthsrealfood.com.

      Frozen fruit and some chilled coconut milk in a good food processor could very well work – although it might need a bit of time afterward in the freezer to harden.
