Frozen Yoghurt Bark
There is no doubt that there are a few of us eating a little more than usual these days and if you have a sweet tooth like me, it will have gone into overdrive. I know mine has, and I don’t know about you, but grabbing a carrot just doesn’t do it for me. I need something that tastes sweeter…. My compromise, while the weather permits, is frozen yoghurt bark. And it’s guilt-free. I feel like I am having a Clayton dessert: the dessert you’re having when you’re not having a dessert. If you were growing up in the 80’s you’ll know what I’m talking about.
Anyhow this will definitely hit the sweet-tooth spot. How sweet you want to make it is up to you. You can use flavoured yoghurt, plain yoghurt or low-fat yoghurt. You can use any topping you like, there are NO RULES so go for it. Your 2-year-old can make it, in fact, if he/she came to my daycare then they definitely made it. I would encourage you to make it with your child while you can still eat something frozen. You can turn it into a fun shape- learning experience. All you need to do is line a baking tray with baking paper, place shaped cookie cutters on top, pour the prepared yoghurt into the cookie-cutter, sprinkle with whatever topping you fancy and freeze. That is it! easy as 123.
2 cups greek yoghurt
1-3 tablespoons honey/maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup desiccated coconut (optional)
3 tablespoons cocoa nibbs
3 tablespoons homemade muesli (see my recipe. I love the crunch
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
Line a baking tray with baking paper and set aside. The size of the tray you use will determine the thickness of the bark, (the smaller the tray the thicker the bark.)
Combine the yoghurt and honey/maple syrup, vanilla extract together until well combined, mix in coconut.
Pour the yoghurt mixture onto the tray and spread evenly.
Place in the freezer for 2-4 hours or until completely frozen.
Remove tray from freezer and place bark on a chopping board. Using a sharp knife cut the bark into pieces, place in freezer bags and store in the freezer.
