Are you ready to make an addictive treat that’s actually good for you?
Made with yogurt, honey and fresh fruit, this icy yogurt bark is the perfect healthy snack that doubles as a delicious frozen treat for kids and adults alike. You can mix and match your favorite combos, store it in the freezer and grab a piece whenever your sweet tooth strikes.
This bark recipe is one of our favorite desserts on a hot summer day or mid-winter post workout snack.
Spending time in the kitchen with your kiddos can be a beautiful bonding experience. In fact, some of my (Kalie’s) best childhood memories involve helping my mom and grandmother in the kitchen. It’s one of the reasons I have such an interest in real food and healthy living—and someday, your kids may feel the same way!
Kids LOVE to be creative, no matter what age or stage they’re at. This frozen yogurt bark is the PERFECT way to get them excited about a real food lifestyle. Whip up the yogurt mixture and let your little sous-chef use the toppings of their choice to create a mouth-watering real food mosaic.
A great pre/post workout snack
Because Greek yogurt is loaded with protein, this bark doubles as a delicious pre/post workout snack.
Depending on what you’re craving, and what’s in your fridge or pantry, you can make a different flavor of bark every time. Some tasty options for you to experiment with:
- Black cherries
- Homemade Jam swirled in (add dollops and swirl into the yogurt with a skewer, tip of a knife or toothpick)
- Pistachios, macadamia nuts, walnuts, almonds and cashews
- Dark mini chocolate chips
- Cacao powder or nibs for a boost in chocolatey flavor
- Nut butter swirled in
- Unsweetened coconut flakes
Here are a few of our favorite variations you can try:
Chunky Monkey Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter: Your favorite ice cream flavor has been made into healthy FroYo bark! Combine yogurt mixture with 3 tablespoons cacao powder. Once spread on the baking sheet, add 2 tablespoons peanut butter swirled in (smooth and creamy works best), top with cacao nibs and banana slices.
Pistachio and Pomegranate: Top yogurt mixture with 2 tablespoons nuts and pomegranate seeds.
Tropical: Blend a cup of pineapple and mango with 2 cups Greek yogurt. Pour onto tray and top with unsweetened coconut, macadamia nuts and kiwi slices.
Patriotic: Top yogurt mixture with blueberries, strawberries and bananas.
For a dairy-free option, swap the Greek yogurt with unsweetened coconut yogurt — YUM!
How to Store Frozen Yogurt Bark
Store your Frozen Yogurt Bark between layers of parchment paper (so it doesn’t stick together) in an airtight container or freezer bag. Make sure you keep it in the freezer, rather than the fridge, or it’ll thaw back into a yogurt consistency.
When you’re ready to eat it, only take out the amount you need. You can leave it at room temperature for 3-5 minutes before serving, so that the ice crystals melt a little bit (although many times we just eat it straight out of the freezer).
Pro tip: The yogurt tends to melt quickly (kind of like ice cream), so if you’re serving it to little ones, you may want to put it in a bowl or on a plate and keep a napkin close by.
