When it’s the strawberry season, it is a good idea to make use of this nutritious fruit and create something satisfying and tasty for dessert. This is why I’m inspired to share with you today how to make strawberry rhubarb crisp that you can make in just minutes.

This recipe will help you give your family a healthy dessert that will benefit their body in so many ways! Plus, it’s super delicious, too!

What is Rhubarb?!

First things first - what is a rhubarb, anyway? Rhubarb is straight and sturdy, just like a celery. So it is actually a vegetable but it is great when mixed with fruit because of its nutritional value and amazing taste. It has a slightly sweet and somewhat tart flavor… A little bit like green apple. Combined with strawberries makes an excellent combination of flavor!

It’s great for building healthy bones whether you’re an infant, a senior, or if your stage of life is somewhere in between!

I like to mix the rhubarb with strawberries as this doubles up the nutritional value of these ingredients. As we all know, strawberries are packed with vitamin C and essential antioxidants that can help strengthen the immune system and improve the quality of your skin. So by combining strawberries and rhubarb in this recipe we get a truly rich and satisfying snack that is tasty, filling, and nutritious!
