Rhubarb Strawberry Yogurt Parfait is a perfect dessert to make when the fresh rhubarb comes in this spring. Even though it isn’t spring yet, I found some rhubarb in the store yesterday. Plus I recently saw a picture of a dessert that was layered with rhubarb and strawberry in a magazine and then a few hours later I came across the fruit in my grocery store and I decided I had to make a Rhubarb Strawberry Yogurt Parfait.
Rhubarb is very tart and it takes a lot of sugar to make it taste great. Although as a child I used to eat it raw, but I use to suck on lemons also. What is it with children and sour things? A lot of children love sour things. Anyways I started with 1/4 cup sugar to sweeten the rhubarb, then went up to 1/2 cup sugar. I used plain Greek Yogurt for this recipe.
I used Oikos Triple Zero Plain Greek yogurt for the recipe. The triple zero means it contains 0 added sugar, 0 artificial sweeteners, 0 fat. I’m not getting paid to mention this product but I found the yogurt to be really creamy and thick and it was just what you would want for a layered dessert like Rhubarb Strawberry Yogurt Parfait.
If you love rhubarb and strawberries like I do, then check out my Strawberry Rhubarb Cream Tart and My Husband’s Favorite Strawberry Rhubarb Pie I made previously.

Oh my… I was craving for rhubarb for years but couldn’t find here locally..too bad. You bring such a delicious dessert on the table. thx for sharing
I used to eat rhubarb right out of the garden when I was a kid. I recently read that children’s taste buds aren’t as sensitive to sour flavor profiles as adult taste buds. I think kids and adults alike would like diving into this parfait!
Yes I believe that is true about the kids taste buds. Thanks Kirsten.
Rhubarb is my husband’s absolute favorite, usually I put it in cobbler or pie but I definitely want to try these parfaits!
Sara you should try them because they are so easy and tasty.

How pretty! I can’t wait until the rhubarb comes to the stores! I don’t think I’ve had it since I was a kid — don’t ask me why! I’m pinning this so I can try it in the near future! Lovely!
Thanks Patricia. Hope you hope get to make it sometime.
