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.

Roasting rhubarb in a little juice and sugar brings out the best in its flavour and allows it to keep its shape.
