"just the right things in this real cooler of the day ice pop and good for you too!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 7, 2012

"This recipe was so good! I actually just ended up mixing the extra strawberry yogurt and extra rhubarb and eating it right then...so yummy! The portion is a nice size and I got more than 8 serving out of it. Plus it's a great way to use up some of the rhubarb from the garden. I'll definitely be making it again and I'll probably double it to have more!"
