Frothy Rhubarb and Strawberry Coconut Shake
I have tried to grow rhubarb on a few occasions with varying success, though I am told it shouldn't be that difficult. It is as easy as...planting rhubarb crowns in well-drained soil with full sun, spacing them 3 feet apart, and watering regularly for a bountiful harvest of this perennial vegetable/not fruit!
I grew up on rhubarb as an ingredient fixture and this recipe is a version of my mum's rhubarb lemonade that outgrew itself and got all fancy. I love the pairing of strawberries and coconut cream with rhubarb. Again, adding an alcohol of your choice (we’re thinking white rum) will make it all grown up and perfect to serve at any gathering.
