This healthy yogurt bark recipe is about to become your new favorite clean eating snack. But get ready to fight your kid on who gets the last bite! It could NOT be easier to make. In fact, the hardest part will be waiting for it to become frozen. You can use any yogurt flavor you want (even chocolate!) and any fruit combination you can think of - we used strawberries and blueberries + chocolate chips. YUM! See the full recipe and video here.
I feel like we can't go on for even a second longer until we acknowledge how amazingly gorgeous this yogurt bark is.
It's like when I'm looking super amazing in a new outfit or my hair is actually finally working, and I don't have any stains on my shirt, and my nails are not chipped, and I'm wearing super cute sunglasses. Sometimes I feel the need to just acknowledge to everyone I encounter that I KNOW I look good. This helps people feel a little more COMFORTABLE in my amazingness. You know?
This yogurt bark is just like that. She's so pretty and shiny and she looks like she just spent a week at the spa. AHHHHHHH...
You know what the best part is? This yogurt bark tastes just as good as it looks.
I'm not even kidding you.
It's crazy easy to make. It's healthy. You can pile on a crapload of fruit. And your kids are going to love it too.
I know. Why isn't the whole freaking world eating yogurt bark every single darn day?
I don't know. I seriously just don't even know.
How to Make Yogurt Bark
Grab a cookie sheet. It doesn't have to be pink and pretty like mine. Any old cookie sheet will do.
Line it with parchment paper (because we're making our lives as easy as possible!)
Dump two to three containers of your favorite yogurt flavor onto the pan, and spread it out.
And then sprinkle your favorite fruit on top. We used strawberries and blueberries, but you can go as crazy as you want. Kiwi, mango, pineapple - GO FOR IT!
If you feel like it, toss on some chocolate chips or granola or nuts. I mean, seriously. Be wild.
Freeze for at least two hours. <-- HARDEST PART!
Then break it apart and enjoy!
Now, we have yet to make a batch of this and not eat it IMMEDIATELY at the two hour mark.
However, if your family is not full of giant yogurt bark pigs like mine is, then you can also break it apart and store it in baggies or a container in your freezer to grab a piece whenever you want one.
And - FYI - we're super proud of you for not being a pig. Good job!
