Yogurt Bark

On a mission to finding top healthy kid-friendly snacks to make with kids, last week I shared the Chocolate-Banana Bonbon recipe, my next pick is Yogurt bark . This is a super easy and fun recipe, and kids can mix and match different fruit or nut toppings. I love this one for after school (or camp) snack time. Let there be Snack!  

  • Mix-and-Match bark toppings:
    • Fruits: Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, dried cranberries, diced mango or peaches etc. 
    • Nuts: Toasted pistachios, pecans, almonds, cashews etc.
    • Other toppings: Shredded coconut, granola, chopped dark chocolate etc. 
  • 1 Cup of Greek Yogurt – Vanilla or plain sweetened with honey to taste.
  • 1 Cup of Toppings
  • Wax Paper
  • Cookie Sheet

  1. On a cookie sheet, place your wax paper and spread a thick layer of yogurt - less than half an inch thick but thicker than a quarter of an inch.  
  2. Sprinkle your selection of nuts, fruit , extras, etc. and freeze it overnight. 
  3. In the morning, crack the bar into pieces and store these in a freezer safe air-tight bag.
