Haven¿t actually made this because raw rhubarb is gross and crunchy like celery. You would be wasting your ingredients. My suggestion is to make a compote of the berries and rhubarb. Then later it with the cream cheese mix. Perhaps add some crumbled graham crackers too.

Rhubarb is hard and crunchy like celery. It should be cooked first.
