All my life I had rhubarb maybe once or twice during rhubarb season and that was fine. But this year is different. For weeks I am obsessed with rhubarb, in particular with rhubarb and vanilla pudding and homemade rhubarb lemonade. I know, it’s no fancy food at all, more like a grandma-ish kind of treat. However, I was thinking, you might be interested in my easy peasy recipes for rhubarb snacks and drinks.
RHUBARB VANILLA PUDDING
You will need:
1/2 l milk
vanilla pudding powder (I use this one)
1/2 kg rhubarb
1 cup raw sugar (or less)
And here is how to make it in 10 minutes:
Peel your rhubarb and cut it into small slices.
Put the slices into a pot, add water until all of the slices are covered, add half a cup sugar and bring everything to boil.
Let it boil for about five minutes.
Meanwhile prepare the pudding as suggested on the package, use the milk and remaining sugar.
HOMEMADE RHUBARB LEMONADE
Pour the cooked rhubarb through a sieve over a large jug. You now have pure rhubarb juice. Add as much mineral water as you prefer and also if you like more sugar or any other sweetener.
Voilá, here is your homemade rhubarb lemonade.
Now put your rhubarb into one big bowl or several little glasses and add the warm vanilla pudding.
And here we go, your sweet’n’sour dessert is ready to eat. I like to eat mine right away when it is still warm, but you can also have it cold on the next day or – what is really cool – hot (vanilla pudding) and cold (rhubarb), if you split the working steps of this recipe.
