    Perfect hot weather treat! Great combination of flavors and not overly sweet.

    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!

    Easy to make and great flavor. Nice alternative to regular popsicles, just as sweet.
