Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble

I love summer time and all of the delicious berry desserts. One of my family’s favorite summer desserts to make is this strawberry rhubarb crisp (crumble). Rhubarb’s prime time is May-August, right around when strawberries are ripe and they go perfectly together in desserts! If you’ve never tried rhubarb before, it almost looks like celery but it is red. It definitely has a tart flavor, and I don’t think I would eat it on it’s own. However paired with strawberries and sugar, it tastes so yummy! ;) The lemon zest also adds the perfect flavor to this strawberry crisp.

Quick tips about this strawberry rhubarb crisp

  • Don’t skip out on the lemon zest! It adds so much flavor to the strawberry dessert and compliments it very well.
  • The strawberry crisp is best served warm in the first 2 days after cooking.
  • If reserving, make sure to warm it back up in the microwave or oven. It may not be quite as crisp as it was right out of the oven, but still delicious!
  • This strawberry rhubarb crisp is best served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. If you love berries, try serving it with my homemade no churn ice cream with berries. You could even leave out the berries and add a few teaspoons of vanilla or vanilla bean paste to make homemade vanilla ice cream.
