So summer is in full swing and the other day it was so hot outside. We’ve got some errands to run so we were out from home for more than 2 hours. When we came back I was craving for something sweet and cool. Thank God! this Blueberry frozen yogurt bark was lying in my freezer, I made this 2-3 days back and it turned out so well. Fruity, healthy and super cool for hot summer days.
This healthier version of yogurt bark is sweetened with honey. I have sprinkled some chia seeds on the top for added goodness.These are way better than ice cream or unhealthy Popsicle. I always prefer unsweetened yogurt and I add natural sweeteners and fruits as needed which is healthier than sugar sweetened yogurt.
The best part is that kids and toddlers also love yogurt bark. You can totally omit chia seeds if you want to from this recipe.I have added fresh blueberries in the yogurt base and fresh cherries and raisins for the topping. Sprinkled with shredded coconut and chia seeds. As sometimes my toddler share this yogurt bark so I can use only limited ingredients as topping. But you can use almost any kind of dried and fresh fruit as well as nuts. Fresh berries are perfect pair for this yogurt bark as they freeze well and kids love them too.
- 2 cups yogurt ( Greek/ Balkan style).
- 4 tsp honey.
- ⅓ cup blueberries ( lightly crushed).
- 1 tbsp raisins( chopped).
- 4-5 cherries ( pitted and chopped).
- 2 tsp desiccated coconut.
- 1 tsp chia seeds,.
- Mix yogurt, blueberries and honey together until well combined, taste and add more honey if required.
- Line a baking pan with wax paper or aluminium foil, spread the yogurt mixture , depending upon how thick and thin bark you want. I like thin bark and mine was about 8 mm thick.
- Sprinkle with cherries, raisins, desiccated coconut and chia seeds on top. Place in freezer until it's completely frozen.
- Remove from the freezer and cut the bark into pieces with a sharp knife. You can store this bark in the freezer food bags for up to a month.
