Rhubarb sauce is (almost) the only topping not offered at my local Red Mango frozen yogurt franchise. But I wish it were. Rhubarb sauce is my absolute favorite way to top ice cream, frozen yogurt – or now that I think about it, to top cake or cheesecake – or practically any dessert. Luckily, my rhubarb plant is still producing nicely this spring/early summer!
I tried to figure out how to make an ice cream/frozen yogurt with rhubarb throughout, but I couldn’t. So we went with a rhubarb swirl ice cream/frozen yogurt. After all, I believe I mentioned, rhubarb sauce swirled into anything is positively perfect.
Now, to explain the ‘slash’ between the ice cream/frozen yogurt. Most frozen yogurts (like those from Red Mango) are very low in fat. But I wanted creamy richness similar to ice cream, but the tart flavor of a frozen yogurt recipe. Thus I used full-fat yogurt to make a creamy ice cream/frozen yogurt. The results totally spot on!
