Rhubarb Slush

One can only eat so much rhubarb pie or rhubarb crisp. So here is another way that you may not have thought of to use up that rhubarb that’s starting to take over your garden. This deliciously sweet-tart slush is perfect on a hot summer day.


It doesn’t take long to get rhubarb tender – less than 10 minutes is all it takes. RhubarbSlush2

Because the variety of rhubarb I grow is not a bright red color, I cheated and added a bit of red food coloring. You could also add some red Kool-Aid powder if you like, just add a bit at a time until you get the color (and added flavor) you want. RhubarbSlush3

Once everything is added to the mixture, pour it into a sealable container and freeze until firm. Use an ice cream scoop and add 1-3 scoops of the slush into each glass, and top with club soda, or a 7-Up style drink. RhubarbSlush4

  1. Sorry about that! I updated the recipe, but it is all really up to your taste. Start by adding 3oz, then add more if you want it a bit sweeter. No wrong proportions for this recipe! Have a great day!
