Introduction to Creamy Yogurt Bark

 

Looking for a guilt-free, delicious, and refreshing treat? Look no further than this yogurt bark recipe! This delightful dessert is not only easy to make but also incredibly versatile.  Plus, yogurt can play a key role in gut health and actually work to soothe reflux!

You can customize it with your favorite fruits, nuts, and flavorings, making it a perfect snack or dessert for any occasion. Plus, it’s packed with probiotics and protein, making it a healthy alternative to traditional sweets.

In this blog post, we’ll walk you through a basic yogurt bark recipe and provide some creative variations to suit your taste buds.

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 2 cups of Greek yogurt (full-fat or low-fat, depending on your preference)
  • 2-3 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup (adjust to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional, for extra flavor)
  • 1 cup of mixed fruits (e.g., strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, kiwi, mango, or any of your favorites), sliced or diced
  • 1/4 cup of chopped nuts (e.g., almonds, walnuts, or pistachios)
  • 2 tablespoons of dark chocolate chips (optional, for a touch of indulgence)

 

Instructions:

 

1. Prepare a Baking Sheet:

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. The parchment paper will prevent the yogurt bark from sticking and make it easy to remove once it’s frozen.

 

2. Mix Yogurt and Sweetener:

In a mixing bowl, combine the Greek yogurt, honey or maple syrup, and vanilla extract (if using). Stir until the mixture is smooth and well combined. Adjust the sweetness to your liking. Keep in mind that the fruits and optional chocolate chips will add sweetness too.

 

3. Spread Yogurt Mixture:

Pour the yogurt mixture onto the prepared baking sheet. Use a spatula to spread it evenly into a rectangular or square shape, about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.

 

4. Add Toppings:

Sprinkle the mixed fruits, chopped nuts, and dark chocolate chips (if using) evenly over the yogurt mixture. Feel free to get creative with your toppings; this is where you can personalize your yogurt bark.

 

5. Freeze:

Place the baking sheet in the freezer and let it freeze for at least 3-4 hours or until the yogurt bark is firm.

 

6. Break into Pieces:

Once the yogurt bark is completely frozen, remove it from the freezer and let it sit for a minute or two to slightly soften. Then, using a sharp knife, break it into bite-sized pieces or irregular shards.

 

7. Serve and Enjoy:

Your delicious yogurt bark is ready to be enjoyed! Serve it immediately, or store any leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer for later snacking.
