Nutritional values

This low-calorie dessert is just the thing to get a sluggish digestion going, with fiber from fruit, bifidus bacteria from yogurt and the slightly laxative anthranoids from rhubarb.

Raspberry rhubarb, which gets its name from its red skin and red pulp, tastes particularly mild. The more widespread varieties with green flesh and green or red skin are considerably tarter.
