I made white chocolate bark around the holidays and it came out amazing. But I was not too happy with the calorie count on it. It looked beautiful, broke up nicely into jagged pieces, and made a delicious sweet treat. But it was also something I had to monitor with my kid, as I did not feel great giving it to him on a daily basis. What if there was a healthier alternative? This is it! Frozen yogurt bark!
I did not know you could freeze yogurt. I did not know you could make bark out of it. Once I discovered this recipe, I was all in. And what a delicious, healthy way to celebrate the 4th of July with red, white, and blue! And it is a healthy treat I won't feel guilty feeding my family every day until it's gone!
What you will need: (I did all my shopping at Aldi for this one)
Full fat vanilla organic whole Greek yogurt (remember good fat is good for you. This is one of the good fats. AND, the creamier the yogurt, the smoother the bark.)
2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1 Tbsp Vanilla
1 cup fresh organic raspberries
1 cup fresh organic blueberries
1 cup fresh organic strawberries
1/2 cup granola or diced nuts
Prepare a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper. Make sure this baking sheet fits inside of your freezer. Now is a good time to make room in your freezer, before the finished product needs to be placed in its spot. (I have made this mistake before and then I am left scrambling.)
Pour Greek yogurt into a bowl and mix in maple syrup and vanilla. I used vanilla bean yogurt, as I love the taste of it. You can use plain or vanilla, your choice!
Once mixed, spread onto your prepared baking sheet making it the same thickness all around.
Wash and slice the berries and create the design of your choice.
Sprinkle a dash of granola or diced nuts for a little added crunch. I went with the American flag since I plan on serving this at my 4th of July BBQ.
Place in the freezer and it will be ready in three hours. That is it! When it is time to serve, cut or break apart into pieces, like you would a chocolate bark, for you and your guests. I hope you make this and please share your photos and tag me! Happy Cooking!
