Raw Strawberry Rhubarb Ginger Ice Cream

I am in love with anything strawberry rhubarb lately.  I made a crumble pie last week, but that was not enough strawberry rhubarb for me...so I made some strawberry rhubarb ginger ice cream a few days later.  I never need an excuse to make ice cream, it is always necessary to make as far as I am concerned.

Cool weather, warm weather, bad mood, good mood...I pretty much make it every week.  I always make different flavors, and raw ice cream is always good, but this one was knock my socks off good.

The strawberries made it sweet, the rhubarb a little tart and the ginger gave it a little kick.  I couldn't help but have a smile on my face as it put me in my happy place as I indulged in it.  I might have to make some again when I make strawberry rhubarb crisp!
