Five ingredients are all you need for this lip-smacking sauce that's ideal over reduced-fat ice cream. "We even like it warm over biscuits with a dash of cinnamon and a dollop of whipped cream," writes Evelyn Gebhardt from Kasilof, Alaska.


  • 3 cups sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • Sugar substitute equivalent to 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Reduced-fat no-sugar-added vanilla ice cream


  1. In a saucepan, combine the rhubarb, sugar substitute, water and nutmeg. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 6-8 minutes or until rhubarb is tender. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Serve warm or cold over ice cream.
