Frozen yogurt bark is a refreshing, fun snack for adults and kids. It's a great way to cool down on hot days.
Fruity Frozen Yogurt Bark
Fruity frozen yogurt bark is a great snack that takes minutes to make and ensures that my freezer is stocked with healthy treats.
It’s a great alternative to ice cream on hot days and my kids love it. We've been making versions of it for years and it always goes down well.
Frozen yogurt bark is also a fantastic way of using up yogurt that will go off before you use it up. If you have a few flavours of yogurt languishing in the fridge, just swirl them all into a pan, freeze and voila - you've reduced food waste and made a great snack. If you're using flavoured yogurt, then you don't need to add the jam.
You can use fresh or frozen fruit in this yogurt bark. I always keep a stockpile of frozen fruit on hand for snacks. Just whiz up a frozen banana (peel and freeze in chunks) into a creamy ice cream, or blitz a few handfuls of frozen pineapple chunks or mango into sugar-free sorbet. I also love making breakfast popsicles with blackberries or other fruit.
Eat a rainbow
Like many, I find a plate of beige food horrifying. I want a rainbow of vegetables; a riot of fruit. And I want my children to want that as well. Even if you can’t quite reach 5-10 portions of fruit and veg a day, getting as much as you can is only a good thing.
Use as many different fruits as you can for this bark and turn it into a frozen rainbow. It's great for a snack, dessert or even breakfast!
