No Churn Rhubarb Crisp Ice Cream

I’ve been on the no churn ice cream bandwagon for quite some time. I’m crazy about how easy it is to whip up a batch in the morning so that it’s ready when I get home from work. I can use whatever fresh fruit I might have on hand to flavor it, and best of all, no ice cream maker is required! I love making it in a loaf pan too so that my family can enjoy a few servings without having huge containers of ice cream in our freezer. You’re going to love this no churn rhubarb crisp ice cream.

For this version I’ve used some fresh rhubarb from the giant patch I’ve had growing in my garden for years. As soon as the warmer spring days hit, those bright pink stalks start bursting from the ground and reward me with produce for weeks to come. When we were younger, my mother used to simmer fresh rhubarb and sugar on the stove until it was tender and we would spread it on buttery toast. So good! I still make that for my kids to this day. I also chop the abundance of stalks and load my freezer so that we can enjoy tea cakes and rhubarb crisp all winter long. In the dead of winter, there’s nothing like a steaming bowl of rhubarb crisp with some vanilla ice cream melting on top, to let us know that spring is just around the corner.

Since we seem to love rhubarb crisp so much around here, I thought I would take those flavours and combine them into another family favourite, ice cream! The ingredients for this recipe for rhubarb crisp ice cream couldn’t be any simpler. The night before I plan to make it, I simmer some rhubarb and sugar on the stove until tender and sweet. I let that cool overnight in the fridge and in the morning I swirl it into a some lightly whipped cream that has some sweetened condensed milk folded in. Initially, I was just happy making rhubarb ice cream for us all, but the idea for making the crisp part dawned on me one afternoon when I spied my big bag of honey oat granola in the cupboard (a slight snacking obsession of mine). I knew that I could add those sweet granola chunks to my ice cream to mimic the topping on a rhubarb crisp. Genius! The oat clusters kept their shape in the ice cream and added that perfect oat-y topping flavor to it.
