Strawberries and rhubarb are a great summer fruit combo, especially in baked goods!

The sweetness from the strawberries compliment the tartness from the rhubarb. A mouthful of them combined with a crunchy buttery topping is the dream.

It’s up to you whether you choose cream, custard or ice cream but I always go for ice cream. I love the hot and cold combo.

Strawberries and Rhubarb

If you’re in the UK my favourite brands for vegan cream are Oatly or Elmea, custard Oatly or Alpro and ice cream Swedish Glace.

One of the best things about crumble is that it’s so easy to make and you don’t need many ingredients, less than 10!

You probably have all the pantry ingredients already so it’s just the fresh fruit you’ll need.

How to make this strawberry rhubarb crumble:

Cut the rhubarb into 1/2 inch pieces and strawberries in half. Place the rhubarb in the dish along with the lemon, half the sugar and vanilla essence.

Roast these for 10 minutes whilst you make the crumble mix.

Place the flour and cinnamon into a bowl and add teaspoons of the butter so it is easier to crumble in your hands. Use your hands to mix into a crumble consistency. Add the sugar and mix again.

Vegan Crumble Mix

Take the rhubarb out the oven and mix in the strawberries and rest of the sugar. Stir well and then add the crumble topping.

Pour it over evenly so it’s all covered and pop back in the oven for 30-35 minutes.

It’s ready when the fruit is bubbling up the sides and the crumble has turned golden brown and crispy.

Take out the oven and let sit for a minute before serving. Serve with vegan cream, custard or ice cream! Or all of them if you can’t decide!
