Rhubarb lemonade (dye free pink lemonade)

2012 May 16

Rhubarb Lemonade (Dye Free Pink Lemonade)- MyRealFoodLife.com We had our first day of real sunlight yesterday and I was so excited I took a peek in my backyard…. to my delight, my rhubarb plant was humungus!  I have all kinds of plans for it, but there is one thing in particular I love to make with rhubarb.   Its unique. Totally delicious.  A  little more out of the box.

Rhubarb lemonade is both sweet, slightly floral and very slightly tart.  It has the most terrific bright pink colour. You can use the leftover drained rhubarb as a tasty vegan  rhubarb cream cheese pie topping, or swirl it into vegan rhubarb ginger ice cream.

This recipe makes more of a syrup, and tastes best when you add water to it after its cooled, to bring it to the consistency you prefer.

You’ll never go back to boring old lemonade after you try this gorgeous ladylike pink beauty :D

    Hi Valerie- so glad you liked it! this is one of my favourite recipes :D
    I think the pink colour does come from the skin, might be best to keep the skin on it just in case, if you can.

    It was so good that I almost did not have any as my guest and my 6 year old drank almost everything :)
    Thanks for the note about the change in color between the puree and the juice. I would have worry otherwise. Some people peel off the rhubarb, if we do so, do we still have the pink color, i.e. does it come from the skin?

    Hi there Paula!

    Thanks so much for the message :) I think you might want to freeze the syrup instead of canning it, or else i think it may change the flavour… The recipe makes one big pitcher of lemonade- if you were to double it and go generous on the sweetener and water, you could go up to 3 pitchers i think… Hope that helps! :)

    Hi, thank you for the recipe! I can’t wait to try it out! Could you guesstimate about how much lemonade can be made from one recipe batch? Also, could the syrup be made then canned to save for another time? I have a large family gathering coming up and would love to make this for it. I want to be sure I have enough though…. Thank you again!
