Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce

This Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce is simple to make, and there’s no refined sugar! Instead you can use either maple syrup or honey which both make for an incredible flavor pairing with this dynamite duo. The sweetness of the strawberries tempers the tangy nature of rhubarb so you don’t need quite as much sweetener either. This sauce keeps well for days in the fridge, and it’s perfect over my Homemade Coconut Ice Cream. Or try it with your favorite creamy yogurt topped with my Maple Cinnamon Granola.

Have you ever eaten raw rhubarb? Well… I wouldn’t recommend taking a very big bite that’s for sure! My Grandpa used to think it was so funny to initiate each of his grandkids into rhubarb by feeding it to us raw. It’s incredibly sour, and he would be laughing so hard at our puckered up faces that he’d pretty much fall to his knees with mirth!

I love finding new flavor combos, but I never get tired of the classics either. I’m pretty sure a strawberry banana smoothie was the first smoothie I ever made when my mom first got her Vitamix. We had never had a blender before in our house, and it was a blast getting started with all the fun things you can make in one.
