MISSDISH | Broke & Cooking’s Frozen Yogurt Bark Is the Perfect Summer Recipe
DateJuly 12, 2016
With summer heating up, ditch the spoons and make some bark! Frozen Yogurt Bark is the coolest way to eat your daily dose of probiotics. It takes minutes to put together, and once it’s frozen, all you’ve gotta do is break up the yogurt into pieces of ‘bark’! This recipe is a great activity for kids to get involved in the kitchen, and I love its adaptability. Frozen Yogurt bark can be made with any combination of fruit and granola, and can be doctored up with extras like chocolate, flax seeds, chia seeds, protein powder, maca powder… the options are endless. I love recipes that can hide nutrition boosters but still taste great!
What You Need:
16 oz nonfat plain yogurt, or plain Greek yogurt
Drizzle of organic honey
Baking sheet or pan that can fit in your freezer
Your choice of toppings. Some ideas:
Fresh fruit: Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, bananas, mango, kiwi, dragon fruit, bananas
Granola: My favorite granola is Nature’s Path Organic Pumpkin Flax Seed Granola. The crisped rice puffs add amazing texture, and this granola is packed with yummy pumpkin seeds and flax seeds!
Chocolate: add white or dark chocolate for extra sweetness, or drizzle melted chocolate over the finished bark for a really gorgeous finish
What To Do:
1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Mix together 16 oz plain yogurt or Greek yogurt with a drizzle of honey. You can also opt to mix in some chocolate or protein powder.
3. Pour the yogurt onto the parchment-lined baking sheet and spread it into an even layer. The thicker the layer, the thicker your bark.
4. Put the yogurt into the freezer and allow it to set at least 2 hours.
5. Once the yogurt bark sets up, remove it from the freezer and get ready to break it up!
6. Use a knife to make the first break, and then use your hands to break up the bark. That’s it! Time to eat up!
I think the bark is so gorgeous! It’d be really great to use berries to ‘dye’ the yogurt, or a chocolate bark would be really beautiful as well. You can use different color combinations for special occasions or holidays. Such a great, portable way to eat yogurt, and you can store extras in the freezer!
