Do you need a good, healthy dessert recipe perfect for the summer to use up the seasonal strawberries? Or are you looking for a simple brunch treat? Well, I’ve got you covered with this amazing strawberry and rhubarb crumble that can be made any time of the day! You can adjust the fruit you have at home, but the combination of the tangy rhubarb with the sweet seasonal strawberries is hard to beat!
Just picture it- warm fruity middle with crispy, oaty crumble combined with a refreshing berry banana ice cream. Isn’t that perfection? I’ve always been a fan of the hot and cold combo and this really hits the spot!
The humble crumble (he-he) is truly simple and easy, there is only a couple of wholesome ingredients needed and minimal effort. Nevertheless, it is a nutritious meal. The oats are an amazing source of carbs, fiber and contain more protein and fats then other grains. All the sweetness comes from the strawberries and 3 tbsp of maple syrup-no refined sugar here!
And did you know rhubarb is actually a- vegetable?! Yup… Their roots have been used in ancient Chinese medicine to relieve constipation because all of the wonderful fiber it contains. Plus the vitamins: a whooping amount of vitamin K, C, A and B-complex. And here’s a geeky fun fact. One cup of rhubarb contains more calcium then one cup of milk! Are you unsure what rhubarb actually is? Check it out in the link! What I can say- rhubarb paired with strawberries is incredible! I won’t be talking much about strawberries because we all know hot amazing they are, but I will only advise you to make sure they are organic. Strawberries are on top of the pesticide foods list. Eat safe, guys!
