Strawberry-Rhubarb Frozen Yogurt

Posted by Jackie on May 30, 2011

There is nothing better than a cold, refreshing treat on a hot day!  As the days get hotter and hotter, try making this frozen yogurt.  Made with fresh strawberries and rhubarb, every bite begins sweet, and ends with a slightly tart flavor.  The combination of these two flavors makes for a delicious treat!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups sliced fresh rhubarb
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 2 cups low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup

Instructions:

In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, combine the rhubarb, sugar, and water.  Cook, stirring occasionally, until the rhubarb is soft (about 5-7 minutes). Cool the rhubarb slightly.

In a food processor, puree the rhubarb and strawberries.

Pour the puree into a large bowl.  Add the yogurt and corn syrup.  Mix until combined.  Cover and freeze for 1-2 hours, or until very cold.

Freeze the mixture in your ice cream maker.  Once frozen, scoop into a large container, and freeze for at least 4 hours.

Enjoy!

Makes about 5 servings of frozen yogurt.

    What is the purpose of the light corn syrup? Is it a sweetner, used to help “smooth” the frozen yogurt? Can it be left out? Thoughts? I really want to try this recipe.

    Also, I can’t have yogurt (dairy) is there a way to make this as a sorbet? Thoughts?
