One clear indicator that spring is here, is when the rhubarb stalks start coming in. Although rhubarb is technically a vegetable, it’s often used like a fruit, in many low-carb rhubarb recipes. Some of these include: sugar-free rhubarb ice cream, keto rhubarb muffins and low-carb rhubarb cakes. You’ll also find favorites like strawberry rhubarb crisp and a custard studded tart, in this rhubarb recipe roundup. There are just so many ways to enjoy this early spring vegetable!
Be sure to check out this April Rhubarb Fool too, a centuries-old English classic that’s made by folding puréed or mashed fresh fruit (like rhubarb) into whipped cream. Just replace the sugar with a keto-friendly sweetener for a low-carb version.
You’ll want to save this collection for later, so it will be handy when rhubarb is in season—April through June. Just pin the collage image below to find it easily and be sure to freeze some fresh rhubarb for later, so you can enjoy these recipes year long.
