Yogurt Bark

Here’s a fun and easy snack no one can turn down: Yogurt Bark! This play on chocolate bark uses frozen yogurt as the base. Mix Greek yogurt with a little honey and vanilla, then sprinkle with toppings of your choice: fruit, granola, chocolate chips, and nuts. Freeze it up and break it into pieces, and each bite is creamy and refreshing: perfect for kids and adults. Our son Larson adores this treat and honestly: I can’t resist it myself!

How to make yogurt bark: a few tips

What is frozen yogurt bark? It’s essentially chocolate bark that uses frozen yogurt as a base for “healthy” toppings like fruit, granola, and nuts. Mixing Greek yogurt with honey and vanilla gives it a subtly sweet flavor. Freeze it with toppings, and they give a pop of sweet, fruity brilliance that makes this treat hard to resist. Here’s the basic concept and a few tips:

  • Use a jelly roll pan (half sheet pan), size 10″ x 15″. This way you can spread the yogurt to fit the entire sheet pan. If you don’t have one, just use a baking sheet and spread to your desired thickness.
  • Mix Greek yogurt, honey and vanilla. If all you have is vanilla yogurt, you can use that too: just omit the sweetener and vanilla. You can also use plain yogurt.
  • Line the baking sheet with parchment paper or foil! This is key: otherwise the bark will freeze to the pan. Spread the yogurt onto the parchment paper in an even layer.
  • Top and freeze for 3 hours. This gets it good and frozen before digging in.
  • Break into pieces and serve! It does become melty after a few minutes, so eat it quickly.

Frozen yogurt bark toppings

Frozen yogurt bark is fun because it works with just about any toppings you can imagine! Here’s what we chose (and why), and a few other ideas:

  • Sliced strawberries: You only need a few: slice them very thinly so they are easy to eat when frozen.
  • Granola: We used a purchased chocolate granola: use whatever you have on hand
  • Chopped pistachios: The fine dust of pistachios looks like all natural glitter!
  • Chocolate chips: Add a pop of richness with some mini chocolate chips
  • Crushed almonds or peanuts: Also add a nice flavor
  • Peanut butter: Drizzle a bit of peanut butter over the top for a creative twist
  • Other fruit: Blueberries are rather icy when frozen, so we tend to avoid them. Sliced bananas are great
  • Sprinkles: Why not?

Storage info

Once the yogurt bark is frozen for 3 hours, you can cut or break it into pieces. Then store it in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks. After that, it becomes pretty icy and looks a little worn. Keep in mind it does melt immediately upon taking out of the freezer, so you’ll want to eat it fairy quickly (or encourage kids to do so).

    1. We don’t have a lot of experience with it! I’m not sure how it would freeze, but it would be easy to test a small amount. Seems like it would work!
