Yay! I finally got some rhubarb… I always see rhubarb recipes but never had a chance to try it. So yes, this is my first time cooking with rhubarb and I must admit that I love it. So, before the end of Summer I want to share this simple recipe for rhubarb frozen yogurt…I love the tartness and the fragrance of rhubarb, and I can tell you that I will definitely be cooking/baking more with it in the future.

I was a bit nervous not knowing what to expect…but making the rhubarb stew with a little sugar was easy and it cooked in less time than I expected. Once the rhubarb stew/jam was ready, all the work was left to the ice cream machine. Make sure that your ice cream bucket is in the freezer at least overnight before you follow the recipe.


3 stalk rhubarb (approximately 1 ½ cup chopped)
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons water
2 cup Greek nonfat yogurt
1 – 2 tablespoon agave syrup


In a small sauce pan add the chopped rhubarb, sugar and water. Cook until the rhubarb turns soft, almost like jam consistency (it took me approximately 10 minutes). Let the rhubarb stew/jam cool in the refrigerator.

In a medium bowl mix together the yogurt with the rhubarb stew/jam and add agave syrup to your taste.

Place the yogurt mix into the ice cream bucket and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer to a freezer container, freeze for a couple of hours before serving.

  9. Looks wonderul Juliana! Specially because of the greek yogurt of which I am a huge fan. I hope someday I have the chance to try rhubarb, it was only recently that I heard about it for the first time.
    BTW, I love your comment with a bit of Potuguese :o)

  10. That looks amazingly good! It’s quite warm today so I’d love a scoop please! 😉

  11. Clever and creative way to use rhubarb and so simple, love it.

  12. Although I have yet try yogurt with rhubarb, it sounds an interesting alternative to other fruits, not to mention the lower calories!
    You too, have a wonderful week, Juliana : )!

  13. I’ve only had rhubarb once, a little tart, but I bet in frozen yogurt it has that nice sweet-tart flavor. Looks so cool and delicious!

  14. Hi Juliana, I’m so glad that you have gotten the chance to work with rhubarb–it is so “puckery-good.” I have made many rhubarb pies and cobblers, but never a frozen yogurt. Wonderful idea, and thank you for sharing. I’m sure that it is truly delicious. Have a great week! Nancy

  15. Looks very inviting. I seldom cook rhubard, in fact I am not sure whether I can find them at my place. I will be on the search the next round I am out, buying my groceries. I stay away from the city therefore for the rhubard, I need to head to the town.

  16. We don’t have rhubarb here can you believe it? So I will have to guess that this is wonderful as I have never tried rhubarb in my life lol! Looks refreshing to Juliana!

  17. Glad you got to experiment with rhubarb. So your jam I eat as a compote alone if not overly sweet, love the stuff. Served as a frozen yogurt is a great idea.

  18. I love rhubarb! I’ve never tried it in ice cream or frozen yogurt though. I need to try this.

  19. I’ve never tested Rhubarb before!! Must change soon. These looks so delish, Juliana 🙂

  20. I have never had rhubarb before and now that I see your recipe, it now becomes interesting to me and I must try it soon. I’m sure I can get a hold of some from my local market. I know that they are not in the same family but I love the celery-kind of look. Thank you for sharing this post and enjoy the rest of the week, Juliana! 🙂

  21. Rhubarb season is long over here, but I can use other fruits instead. The frozen yogurt looks really great.

  22. I have never had or even heard of rhubarb ice cream or frozen yogurt before. Such an unique recipe and I love it!

  23. I’m like you too… seeing the rhubarb in the market but never try cooking or baking with this interesting ingredient before. Using it to make ice cream is such a great idea 😀

  24. I was not able to open your blog last few times, I don’t know if there was something wrong at my end or yours but today I was lucky.

    Same here I have seen many recipes of rhubarb and see it all the time in market but never had a chance to try, someday I will. Your ice cream seems interesting to me.

  25. Hi Juliana, your frozen yogurt look so refreshing. yum yum. By the way what is agave syrup? Don’t think we have it in Malaysia.

    P/S Oh.. just to let you know your comment in my blog refer the cassava cake, your comment landed in the bean sprout cutlets posting. But it’s ok, never mind. Thanks for your lovely comment.

    Have a nice day, regards.

  26. This is love! I could eat frozen yogurt all day!

  27. Triple yum! I’m putting this on my list for next spring, Juliana!

  28. What a lovely recipe for rhubarb! I love how it’s lighter and so much healthier than ice cream, but still so creamy because of yogurt — perfect!

  29. What a great idea Juliana! I’ve not really cooked with rhubarb, just don’t know why especially seeing this. Have a great week!

  30. That is a lovely combination! I scream for ice cream.

  31. Isn’t rhubarb great stuff? I’ve never had it in either frozen yogurt or ice cream before – wonderful idea. This looks so good. Of course, now I’m hungry both for rhubarb and ice cream!

  32. This looks scrumptious, and perfect for summer. Loving the pleated cups.

  33. IT’s like fall and summer combined!

  34. This looks totally amazing! I haven’t seen rhubarb around here for awhile. I like that there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of sugar in this treat too.

  35. I would love this! I grew up loving and eating rhubarb and now living in Florida I can’t get it much! Wow! How creative to make a frozen yogurt with it!

  36. Wow, this rhubarb frozen yogurt looks good! I love baking with rhubarb but never would have thought to put it in a frozen dessert but it’s a great idea- looks pretty and very appetizing;-)

  37. I’ve never cooked with rhubarb.That looks creamy and delicious!

  38. I will have to try this delicious frozen yogurt next spring when my rhubarb plant gives me some delicious stalks! I love all ways to use rhubarb.

  39. Juliana, I just love your creative, healthy and so yummy Rhubarb Frozen Yogurt. I’ve never tasted rhubarb in ice cream or in frozen yogurt. I know I can find rhubarb at our organic market, so I’ll be looking for it to want to make it. Such a wonderful treat!

  40. It will be many months before I see rhubarb at the farmers markets again, but I will remember this treat. It sounds like a delightful pairing of tart, bitter, and sweet, plus you’ve gotta love an impressive recipe with so few ingredients.

  41. lovely use of rhurbarb

  42. I love rhubarb and it’s usually quite easy to source here in Sydney. I love the paper cups you presented the yoghurt in. They took me back to my childhood where I would go to visit my father in his office building at work and they had a water cooler with the same paper cups. I’d always have a drink and then pull apart the waxed paper cup. I had no idea they were still available xx

  43. That is a divine treat! I love rhubarb.



  44. I can never find fresh rhubarb over here! I wonder why!! Have been looking for it for ages!
    Your frozen yoghurt looks delightful!
    Have a lovely weekend!

  45. Juliana, thank you for visiting my blog. 🙂 I love frozen yogurt and the idea of rhubarb in it is special. I miss my rhubarb patch in Canada. We live in the tropics now and I’m sure if I could get a rhubarb plant that it would grow really well in the tropical rain forest on our mountain. You have me dreaming! Have a wonderful weekend. 🙂

  46. I love rhubarb, but have never tasted rhubarb ice cream or frozen yogurt. It looks fantastic, though, and can’t wait for our spring crop to try your recipe 🙂 Enjoy your weekend, Juliana~

  47. Hi Juliana,

  52. I think that this is a great way to use rhubarb. This looks really yummy.

  53. I’ve never made rhubarb at home either but the frozen yogurt sounds like a great way to get introduced to this ingredient. I’d love to try this homemade frozen yogurt. I need to get an ice cream maker first though.

  54. Rhubarb in yogurt sounds interesting, Juliana! Would love to try this!

  55. This frozen yogurt looks delicious. I really enjoy rhubarb – this looks great!
