Ingredients

  • 3 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb (1/2 inch)
  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh strawberries
  • 2 drops red food coloring, optional

Directions

  1. Place rhubarb, sugar and water in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until thick and blended, 10-15 minutes. Remove 3/4 cup mixture to a bowl; cool completely. (Save remaining rhubarb for another use.)
  2. Add yogurt, applesauce and strawberries to bowl; stir until blended. If desired, tint with food coloring. Fill each mold or cup with about 1/4 cup rhubarb mixture. Top molds with holders; top cups with foil and insert sticks through foil. Freeze until firm.
