Homemade Strawberry Rhubarb Ice Cream Recipe: creamy vanilla base, with tangy rhubarb compote and sweet strawberry compote ribbons throughout.
Rhubarb and Strawberry Ice Cream or maybe I should say Strawberry Rhubarb Ice Cream. But the rhubarb is the star of the show, so it seemed like it deserved top billing. This ice cream just might be the best thing I’ve ever made -like ever!
It’s so perfectly creamy and smooth, and then with ribbons of tangy rhubarb, and sweet strawberries throughout that make it exciting in every bite. We served ours in homemade waffle cone wafers to make Strawberry Rhubarb Ice Cream Sandwiches.
Rhubarb and Strawberries
Rhubarb is a new love for me. I didn’t really ever have it growing up, but this year I can’t get enough of it. We even purchased a rhubarb plant for the garden to feed my new addiction in the future. I just love that combo of sweet and tangy. And speaking of perfect combinations, it pairs so beautifly with strawberries. It’s a classic for a reason.
Let me warn you that this recipe does have a fair number of steps involved. None are too complicated, but it is a fairly lengthy progress. It is so worth it though. I think this is my new very favourite recipe.
You can add the rhubarb and strawberry swirl into the vanilla ice cream base to suit your own personal taste. Less is if you want more of the delicious vanilla base to come through -more rhubarb if you like it more tangy, more strawberries if you like it more sweet. It really is the perfect combination of flavours.

I don’t think my new rhubarb plant will be ready to harvest this year. So I’ll be picking up some more rhubarb at the grocery store, or the farmer’s market to make another batch of this amazing ice cream! It will be especially good right now while our local strawberries are in season.
With homemade Strawberry Rhubarb Ice Cream, life really is a party!
