Frozen Yogurt Bark Two Ways

Greenletes / Recipes / Snacks / Frozen Yogurt Bark Two Ways

How to make healthy frozen yogurt bark two ways: Chocolate Covered Strawberry & Peanut Butter Berry. Enjoy this sweet high protein frozen snack any time of the day!

There’s nothing like a frozen treat as a mid-day pick-me-up or a post-dinner dessert. Although ice cream is a favorite treat for many, it’s not exactly the healthiest food to eat on a daily basis.

Luckily, frozen yogurt bark is a healthier alternative to ice cream that is easy to make and low in added sugar and saturated fat. All you need is some whole milk Greek yogurt, flavor add-ins and toppings to make this deliciously refreshing snack.

What is frozen yogurt bark?

Frozen yogurt bark is frozen Greek yogurt with toppings. It solidifies to become a creamy frozen treat that can be cut up and eaten like a bark.

Since frozen yogurt bark uses plain Greek yogurt, it’s healthier than other frozen yogurt treats that often have heavy cream and tons of sugar. Plain Greek yogurt is high in protein, containing 18-20 grams in a small 6-ounce container, and it has no added sugar.

Not only is protein important for muscle building, it also contributes to feelings of fullness. That means you won’t be reaching for the cookie jar after having some of this bark.

Ingredients to make frozen yogurt bark

You’ll need a few simple ingredients to make frozen yogurt bark- many of which I’m sure you’ll already have.

The most important element of the frozen yogurt bark is the yogurt. Use a whole milk yogurt to get a creamy frozen bark. A little bit of fat is necessary for optimal freezing.

Low-fat Greek yogurt does NOT freeze well, and the end product is more like an ice cube than a creamy dessert.

To make this, you’ll need:

  • 1 cup whole-milk Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup mixed berries strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, blueberries
  • 2 tablespoon seeds chia, flax or hemp

How to make frozen yogurt bark

This recipe is incredibly easy to make, and it’s kid-friendly. If you have little ones at home, definitely let them help you make this, and they’ll be happy to eat plain Greek yogurt.

Here’s how to make frozen yogurt bark:

  1. Mix together the whole milk Greek yogurt, flavoring (peanut butter or cocoa powder, in this case) and sweetener (maple syrup).
  2. Using a spatula, spread the yogurt mixture onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. It should be about 1/2 inch thick.
  3. Then add toppings, like berries, nuts, seeds, chocolate chips or coconut flakes. Freeze for at least 2 hours!

How to eat it

When the yogurt bark is frozen all the way through, take it out of the freezer and place it on a cutting board. You can lift the parchment paper straight out of the pan to transfer it to a cutting board.

Using a sharp knife, cut it into squares. You can eat the bark straight out of the freeze when it’s frozen solid or wait until it’s melted a tiny bit. I personally like it a bit warmer, so it’s not too cold on my teeth.

Don’t let it warm up too much or it will turn into yogurt in your hands.

Ingredient Swaps & Substitutions

As with most of my recipes, you can play around with many of the ingredients. The only ingredient that I recommend you keep the same for this recipe is the whole milk yogurt. I also haven’t tried this recipe with a plant-based yoghurt, so if you do, be sure to let me know in the comments below!

Some of the substitutions I get asked about are:

  • Peanut Butter: If you’re not a fan a peanut butter, you can use almond butter instead. It may impact the flavor slightly, but I think it will be just as tasty!
  • Mixed Berries: Instead of mixed berries, you could swap with pistachios, coconut flakes, cacao nibs, pomegranates, kiwi or mango.

Storage tips

After cutting the bark, put it in an air tight container or freezer bag and store it in the freezer. Make sure the bark hasn’t melted at all, or the pieces will stick together.
