  • 2 medium stalks of rhubarb (or 2 cups frozen), thinly sliced
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 12 strawberries, or 3 cups frozen, sliced
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup unflavored thick yogurt (I like Greek yogurt)
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • Garnish: sliced strawberries


  1. In a small saucepan, simmer rhubarb and 1 cup sugar until rhubarb breaks down and softens, about 6 minutes. Add strawberries and continue cooking for another 5 minutes until strawberries soften slightly.
  2. Cool berry mixture.
  3. Whip heavy cream with remaining sugar until medium peaks form. Whisk yogurt with lime zest and fold in whipped cream.
  4. Layer berries and cream mixture in glass canning jars or dessert glasses. Garnish with sliced berries.
