Serves: 4
Prep Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3/4 pound fresh rhubarb, chopped (about 2-1/2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar, plus additional if necessary
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 heaping cups hulled and chopped strawberries
  • 2 cups vanilla frozen yogurt
  • 1-1/2 cups low fat milk

Directions:

1. In medium saucepot, heat oil over medium heat. Add rhubarb and sugar; cook 5 to 7 minutes or until rhubarb is very soft and broken down, stirring occasionally. Transfer to refrigerator and cool completely. 

2. Squeeze honey onto small plate. Invert 4 glasses into honey; slide around until rims are lightly coated in honey. Place graham cracker crumbs in small bowl; twist glass rims into crumbs until coated.

3. In blender, combine strawberries, frozen yogurt, milk and rhubarb mixture; blend until well combined. Divide between prepared glasses and serve immediately.

Note: because rhubarb varies in tartness, you may need more sugar to sweeten to your liking. As rhubarb is cooking, taste and add more sugar by the tablespoonful, if necessary.
