The tart flavour of rhubarb cuts the sweet of frozen yogurt making it a perfectly light and summery dessert.


  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 tsp grated orange zest

  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice

  • 1 lb rhubarb, cut into 3/4-in. lengths (about 4 cups)

  • 1 pint vanilla frozen yogurt, or strawberry frozen yogurt

  • 1/2 cup amaretti cookies, coarsely crushed


  • Preheat oven to 450°F.

  • Combine sugar, orange zest and juice, and rhubarb in a 9 x 13-in. glass baking dish. Stir to coat rhubarb in mixture, and flatten into a single layer so it roasts evenly.

  • Roast in centre of oven until rhubarb is tender and juices are syrupy, about 20 min. Let cool.

  • How to assemble: Layer a scoop of frozen yogurt, rhubarb mixture and crushed cookies in 4 small glasses, repeating the layers until you reach the top. Serve immediately.
