Strawberry Rhubarb is a combination so delicious, it’s perfect in all forms! And today’s recipe is no exception!
Last week I shared how I come up with some of my recipes. This one was more of a happy accident. I initially made a rhubarb compote to add too first oatmeal, followed by yogurt. And although it tasted great in both forms, I was very unhappy with how all the pictures turned out.
So, I had a small jar of compote in my fridge, and needed a new idea for a recipe. I started by searching my fridge, freezer, and pantry for foods that go well with rhubarb. I usually keep my freezer stalked with a variety of frozen fruit, so when it comes to rhubarb, I was drawn to strawberries! Instead of a smoothie bowl, which I shared a couple of weeks ago, I decided to make my frozen mix in popsicle form!

Strawberry Rhubarb is a combination so delicious, it's perfect in all forms!
For the rhubarb compote:
- 1 rhubarb stalk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- lemon zest
For the popsicles:
- rhubarb compote
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 4 frozen half figs
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
To make the compote, chop the rhubarb into 1/2 inch pieces. Add the rhubarb, water, sugar and lemon zest to a pot.
Cover the pot and turn the burner on to medium heat.
Occasionally sir until the rhubarb breaks down and the compote thickens, roughly 10-15 minutes.
Pour the compote in a jar and let cool in the refrigerator.
In a food processor, add the frozen strawberries, frozen figs, rhubarb compote, and chia seeds. Pulse until well combined.
If the mixture is too thick slowly add some of the water.
Pour the mix into 4 popsicle holders.
To remove the popsicles, run the mold under hot water. The popsicle will loosen from the mold.
