Strawberry Rhubarb Milkshake Recipe

Last Updated on July 6, 2014 by Diane Hoffmaster

One of my children’s favorite summer treats is a milkshake.  They beg me constantly to visit an assortment of fast food restaurants and diners just so they can indulge in one.  I am all for a good milkshake every once in a while but have found that a lot of the quick and easy drive in places don’t use very high quality ingredients!  A good milkshake recipe requires very few things and I decided to come up with a classic summer flavor from a few simple ingredients I had on hand.  Nothing says summer like strawberries and rhubarb, right?  This strawberry rhubarb milkshake recipe will be a big hit with the kids I’m sure!

I did not actually use any MILK in this milkshake.  The strawberry rhubarb syrup thins out the vanilla icecream enough that you really don’t want to add any additional liquid.  I also found that the rhubarb flavor was a bit too subtle.  I included the ratio that I actually used in the recipe but if I make this milkshake recipe again I will definitely be adding more rhubarb!  It is a flavor I truly love and I really want to find ways to use up my back yard harvest!

  • 16 ounces of fresh strawberries, tops removed
  • 2 cups chopped rhubarb
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • vanilla icecream


  1. To make the strawberry rhubarb syrup: Put the strawberries, rhubarb, water and sugar in a medium sauce pan over medium high heat.
  2. Bring the fruit/water/sugar mixture to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook 10 to 15 minutes, using potato masher to smash the fruit.
  3. Remove the fruit syrup from the heat and let cool
  4. Refrigerate until ready to make the milkshake.
  5. To make the milkshake, combine 1 cup of the fruit mixture with 6 scoops vanilla icecream in a blend.
  6. Blend on high until smooth.
  7. Pour into glasses and serve. This will be enough to make 2 milk shakes. You will have enough syrup to make 4 to 6 milkshakes all together.
