How to make frozen Yogurt Bark

This frozen yogurt bark is so easy to make, even the kids can help! Here’s the simple process:

  1. Make yogurt mixture: In a medium bowl, add yogurt, ¼ cup of peanut butter, protein powder, and maple syrup if using. Mix to combine.
  1. Transfer yogurt to pan: Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Pour the yogurt over the pan, and spread evenly.
  2. Melt chocolate: Using the microwave, melt the chocolate chips in 30-second increments until it melts. We also suggest microwaving the peanut butter for 20 seconds to soften it up and make it easy to work with but this step is optional.
  3. Add toppings: Using a teaspoon, add the peanut butter and melted chocolate one dollop at a time over the yogurt throughout the pan. Using either the spoon or a toothpick create swirls all over the yogurt.
  1. Add nuts: Top with crushed almonds or salted peanuts.
  2. Freeze: Place in the freezer for 3-4 hours until firm. Break into smaller pieces and enjoy.

tips and Notes

  • Full-fat yogurt: Use full-fat yogurt for best results. This will freeze better with fewer ice crystals.
  • For sweeter bark: Mix 1 tbsp maple syrup into the yogurt for a sweeter taste.
  • Microwave the peanut butter: We recommend microwaving the peanut butter for 20 seconds to soften it up and make it easy to work with.
  • Use parchment paper: Line your baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. This will prevent the frozen yogurt mixture from sticking to the pan as it sets in the freezer.
