Homemade Strawberry Rhubarb Lemonade RecipeIf you caught my Homemade Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce post yesterday, you know that my parents were kind enough to give me a bag of fresh rhubarb. The sauce turned out absolutely amazing. For Mini Chef Monday this week, Wesley and I are sharing a way to use this sauce as a base in another recipe. We made Homemade Strawberry Rhubarb Lemonade and found a tasty use for the leftover chunky sauce!

Strawberry Lemonade Ingredients

To make this simple lemonade you’ll need the following simple ingredients:

  • strawberries
  • rhubarb
  • sugar
  • lemon zest
  • lemon juice (fresh lemons work best)

How to Make Strawberry Rhubarb Lemonade

To make this recipe you’ll need to create a strawberry rhubarb syrup.  To do this, start making this strawberry rhubarb sauce which requires just strawberries, rhubarb, sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice.

One cooled you can push the sauce through a fine mesh sieve to get out all the big chunks and seeds. Wesley did a great job of stirring the sauce to strain it. To make this lemonade you’ll need 1 1/2 cups of the syrup you create by straining it.

When you are done, you’ll also have the contents of the sauce that could not fit through the strainer. Don’t throw it away!

Strawberry Rhubarb Syrup Leftover

Since a lot of the liquid as been removed, it works great as jam. We’ve been enjoying it on toast for the past several days. My kids just love it.
