What You’ll Need
- Plain Yogurt or Greek Yogurt: Frozen yogurt bark can be made with plain yogurt or Greek yogurt as they freeze equally well. If you are looking to increase the overall protein content of the bark, plain Greek yogurt is recommended.
- Maple Syrup or Honey: Maple syrup or honey can be added to naturally sweeten the yogurt. You can use sweetened yogurt if needed, but opting for plain yogurt helps to control and limit the total sugar in the recipe.
- Vanilla: A splash of vanilla extract helps to add a subtle flavor, however, this can easily be omitted if needed.
- Berries: This recipe calls for a combination of blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries; however, you can use any combination you like and use frozen berries if needed.
- Almonds: Sprinkle the top of the bark with some finely chopped almonds for a bit of extra flavor and crunch. Pecans, walnuts, or pistachios would also work well, or the nuts can be omitted entirely.
- Chocolate or Shredded Coconut: Although not included in this recipe, you can also add chocolate chips, chocolate shavings, or a bit of shredded coconut to the bark. These ingredients can be stirred directly into the yogurt or sprinkled on top along with the berries and chopped almonds.
