We want to get a push on Spring and this Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp is just the thing to chase away the Winter!

You have to try this Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp.  Why?  A whole bunch of reasons.

  • For one, less than 10 ingredients (9 to be exact!)– that is all that is takes to make this sweet and delicious dessert.
  • Even better – these ingredients are likely in your kitchen right now!! 
  • If the above 2 weren’t reasons enough, anybody that tries this Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp will thank you and think that it required a lot more time and effort than it actually does!! 

Strawberries and rhubarb are the stars of this dessert.  The beauty of this dessert is that the flavours are there whether you use fresh or frozen fruit.  Is using frozen fruit, you don’t even have to thaw the fruit – super easy!

We live in Ontario and in the winter months reasonably priced fresh fruit is sometimes (aka always!) hard to come by.  However, this does not stop us from enjoying fruit desserts because most can be easily made using frozen fruits.

Each spoonful of Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp is sweet and satisfying.  The sweet plump fruit creates its own juices as this Crisp bakes and these juices bubble up through the crumble topping.  You end up with a really pretty dessert! 

As an added bonus, your house will smell cozy and homey as this bubbles away and bakes in the oven.

Now, don’t think that we have forgotten about the topping.  The streusel-like crumble topping is to die for! 

With that in mind, our little tip is to make extra topping because if you are like us, you will be eating it by the spoonful!  We tend to sneak some while putting this dessert together and then sneak a little more after it is baked and is supposed to be cooling! 

Please don’t judge!!!

  1. I love a mix of strawberry and rhubarb. It is that sweet and tart combination that is so enticing. Add a crunchy topping and I cannot wait to eat it.

    • I can see why you haven’t yet attempted it – it looks like celery and is inedible when raw. It has a delicious tartness that can’t be matched, so if you haven’t tried it yet I highly recommend it.

  2. Fantastic, strawberry season is nearly here for us and the crumble on this sounds delicious… Unfortunately I really don’t like Rhubarb but I’m sure I could find a sub for it.

    • My strawberries are growing, but not yet ripe yet. I would think you could sub peaches, mango, or even other berries for the rhubarb. As long as you have the same quantity of fruit you should be okay.

  3. Goodness that looks amazing! It’s cold here (for some reason) so I feel like a delicious warm crisp is exactly what’s needed to bring everyone around to feeling warm and satisfied again!
