Ingredients For Frozen Yogurt Bark

  • Plain Nonfat Yogurt (or flavored yogurt if preferred): Offers a creamy, tangy taste that freezes wonderfully for a cool goodie.
  • Agave: Adds a touch of sweetness to the yogurt.
  • Vanilla Extract: Infuses the yogurt with a warm flavor that complements the berries.
  • Fresh Lemon Juice: Gives a hint of zestiness, brightening up the flavors and adding a refreshing note.
  • Salt: Just a pinch. It enhances all the other flavors, making the sweetness and tartness pop.
  • Strawberries, Blueberries, Raspberries: These add juicy bursts of flavor and natural sweetness, plus they make the bark look colorful and inviting!
  • Pecans & Granola: If you want some crunch and nuttiness, sprinkle these over the top before freezing.

How to Make Frozen Yogurt Bark

  • Prepare the Baking Sheet: Lay a sheet of wax paper over a baking sheet and set it aside.
  • Mix the Base Ingredients: In a large bowl, mix together the yogurt, agave, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt until well combined.
  • Spread the Yogurt Mixture: Transfer the mixture onto the lined baking sheet and smooth it out evenly.
  • Add the Berries: Scatter strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries evenly over the yogurt layer.
  • Add Nuts and/or Granola: Sprinkle chopped pecans or granola over the top to add a crunchy texture.
  • Freeze: Place the baking sheet in the freezer and let it sit for 2 to 3 hours or until firm.
  • Cut and Serve: Use a knife or your hands to cut the frozen yogurt bark into pieces.

Tips & Variations

  • Yogurt: Feel free to experiment with flavored yogurts and different types of yogurt.
  • Sweeteners: If agave isn’t your thing, substitute with honey, maple syrup, or any sweetener you choose. Adjust the quantity according to taste.
  • Berry Varieties: Don’t limit yourself to the listed berries; feel free to mix in other fruits.
  • Texture: For an even consistency, ensure the yogurt mixture is smoothed out evenly on the baking sheet to avoid thin or thick spots.
  • Serving: Use a pizza cutter for easy and quick cutting of the bark into pieces. It works like a charm.
  • Storage Hack: Store the bark pieces between layers of parchment paper in an airtight container to keep them from sticking together in the freezer.

How To Serve Yogurt Bark

  • Break Into Pieces: Use your hands or a knife to break the bark into desired size pieces. For a cleaner cut, use a sharp knife to cut it into squares or rectangles.
  • Serving Style: Lay the pieces out on a serving tray but not overlapping to prevent them from sticking together.
  • Garnish: If desired, garnish with a sprinkle of extra toppings or a drizzle of honey or chocolate to elevate the visual appeal and flavor.
  • Serve Immediately: Since yogurt bark melts fairly quickly at room temperature, serve it immediately. Use it as a refreshing appetizer or a cool snack on a warm day.

Storage

  • Keep any leftover bark pieces in the freezer to maintain their texture and freshness.

  1. The nice thing about this recipe is you can be as creative as you want with your toppings and even the flavouring of your yogurt. Definitely something to have waiting in your freezer for those temptations and entertaining guests.

  2. Kinda disappointed. The flavor of the yogurt and berries is definitely super delicious but the dessert is too cold to eat. Yes I know its a frozen dish but it is like biting into ice cream – only colder somehow? It really hurts my teeth to eat and little water crystals formed on top of the yogurt bark even though I only froze it for 2 hours. The little crystals give it a weird crunch and watered down taste I don’t enjoy. I really think this could be great but it’s too cold.

    1. Aleah, I feel the same exact way. Made this yesterday and it’s just too cold to bite. Gives me brain freeze and hurts my teeth, lol. I’m thinking I might let it thaw just a tiny bit and try that. It tastes good, just can’t handle the cold.

  3. I’ve done this, and it tastes too icy, like it has freezer burn. Is there any way around this?

      Hi!
      You could put wax paper or plastic wrap on top of the yogurt mixture and just pat it down over the yogurt. That should help with avoiding those ice crystals. You can also freeze it and then break it up into pieces – do this as soon as it’s frozen – and put those pieces in a ziploc bag.

      1. I’ve made this 4 times and when I eat it as a snack, I usually go back to the freezer 1 or 2 times. Hits the spot! I always add pecan chips for the added texture and a bit of protein.

  4. How long after you take a piece from the freezer does it start to thaw out? I know it is an odd question but I was thinking if I wrapped a piece or two in a napkin and took them out the door, I could eat in the car- but would that be a horribly bad idea?

      Hi!
      Yeah, I do that. Just before I head out, I take a couple pieces in a napkin and eat in the car. 😊

    I flavor 2 c yogurt w one pkg sugar free instant pudding or sugar free jello and made following combos: lime jello w coconut topping, chocolate pudding w crushed pretzels and peanut butter, orange jello w bananas, cheesecake pudding w crushed graham crackers, the possibilities are endless!

    1. I did, and it turned out well. I think it kind of evens out because you end up freezing everything anyways.

  6. This was shockingly delicious! I made it as a Valentine’s Day treat for my husband who has sworn off desserts since the start of the year. Used sliced strawberries to make a heart (of course), then added blueberries, chopped pistachios, and 2 small squares of chopped dark chocolate. Really good!!!

  7. Yes, this look really good to snack on. What size pan for snack? Is it a 13X9 glass dish? I was hoping I would see amounts of fruits to add. Also, I was directed to which shopping area to choose to find ingredients. I don’t care to do that. I would appreciate more information on the recipe. Thanks!

      13×9 will definitely work, but for a thinner bark, I’d go with a jelly roll pan, which is 10.5 x 15.5.

      Hi!
      Yes, you don’t have to use a sweetener. You can also see to use a fruit yogurt that is sugar free.

  8. Would it be horrible tasting without any sweetener? I am on an eating plan with no sweetners of ANY kind except for the natural sugars in fruit. Thanks!
