Snack time just got exciting with this recipe for energy boosting Frozen Yogurt Bark; greek yogurt sweetened with honey and topped with chocolate chips, strawberries and coconut!
So school is back for all kids in the UK now which officially means summer is over. Boo!!
Thankfully the weather is still pretty mild here but that means my fussy eater is still shouting for ice cream and popsicles as a post-nursery snack.
I made some Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Bark earlier in the summer but this time I wanted to experiment with a lower sugar recipe.
And this healthy frozen yogurt bark is a seriously tasty way to satisfy their sweet tooth without all the added sugar that comes with shop bought popsicles and ice creams.
What Yogurt Should You Use?
I chose the Classic Total Greek Yogurt for this recipe which is just a plain greek yogurt.
I buy this a lot as it has one of the lowest sugar contents I can find in the supermarkets.
Obviously it is unsweetened so for kids you may need to add something sweet to it to make it a little more appealing to younger palates.
But personally I prefer to add my own natural sweeteners like a little honey or good quality maple syrup rather than having the refined white stuff pre-added.
Any plain yogurt will work though so it’s really down to personal preference.
You could also use a nice creamy vanilla yogurt or even a flavoured one! It just depends on what you like and how healthy you want your frozen bark to be!
What Toppings Can You Use?
My fussy eater and I had a lot of fun making this Frozen Yogurt Bark.
She chose the toppings (no surprise there considering there is chocolate involved!) but I was able to sneak some raisins, cranberries and coconut flakes into the mixture!
Almost any type of dried fruit and nuts would work in this recipe.
Fresh berries are also perfect for decorating the top as they freeze really well as well as adding a great pop of color to the bark making it colourful and enticing to children.Print
