Frozen Yogurt Bark

This Frozen Yogurt Bark recipe is so simple, quick and easy, plus you can tweak it to meet your own dietary needs and preferences.

It’s the perfect sweet treat to snack on and even better in warmer weather when you want something cool to nibble on which won’t cause your blood glucose levels to soar.

If you don’t like to add sweetener to your diet, then no need to, just get sweetness from low GI summer berries instead. Can’t eat nuts, then don’t add them. Love nuts, use lots and swirls of peanut butter! Can’t or don’t eat dairy, use a dairy-free alternative. Prefer tropical fruits, then use passionfruit, lime & coconut. Love berries, then sprinkle with sweet summer berries. Prefer zingy zesty flavours, then use plenty of zest and small segments to get a zingy hit! Lots of flavour ideas can be found in the recipe notes below.

Ingredients

Base Yogurt Bark Ingredients

  • 500 grams yogurt full-fat Greek, SKYR, coconut, or soya
  • ½ medium lemon juice & zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar free syrup (or sweetener) optional, to taste

Berries & Coconut Topping

  • 6 whole strawberries thinly sliced
  • 12 whole raspberries
  • 20 whole blueberries
  • 1 tbsp coconut flakes

Instructions

For the Yogurt

  • Line a tray or dish with baking paper with enough overhang that you can easily lift the yogurt out of the tray once frozen
  • Add the yogurt, the zest of a lemon and juice of half, vanilla and pinch of salt to a bowl and stir well until combined. If using, add sugar-free syrup or sweetener to your liking
  • Pour the yogurt into the lined tray, smoothing out to cover the surface (the larger the tray, the thinner the yogurt bark will be. Likewise, the smaller the tray, the thicker the yogurt bark will be). Drop or bang the tray on the work surface a couple of times to help evenly spread the yogurt

Add toppings/flavourings

  • Top with slices of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and coconut flakes or toppings of your choice
  • Place the tray into the freezer for at least 2 hours or until completely frozen (this works well being left to freeze overnight)
  • Once frozen, remove from the freezer. Lift the yogurt out of the tray and break into pieces. Place the pieces into freezer bags or a lidded container and keep frozen, ready to be eaten
