I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Jason had Monday off so we were able to extend our weekend by another day. After running some errands yesterday morning we made our day a little extra special by grabbing some frozen yogurt and ALL the toppings for a mid day treat. The high right now in Charlotte is in the 30’s (for this southern gal that means cold ) but my daughter informed me it’s never too cold for frozen yogurt. She would also say the same thing about this frozen yogurt bark and I have to say I would agree with her. Nothing like the mind of a two and a half year old to put things in perspective.
The idea for this Granola yogurt bark came from this recipe from Six Sisters’ Stuff after needing to find something to do with a huge container of Greek yogurt I bought for a brunch but didn’t end up using it. This bark could not be easier to make as it only needs two ingredients plus the toppings. The toppings are completely customized based on your favorite flavor combinations and ingredients. Here I chose to go with homemade granola, which I almost always have on hand, and dried cranberries but you could add fruit, dried fruit, chocolate chips, coconut, or nuts.
Plain Greek yogurt is sweetened with honey then topped with your favorite toppings for a healthy snack the whole family will enjoy. Like I mentioned earlier this bark can be enjoyed any time of the year but I imagine it would be the perfect treat in the summer after a day at the pool or playing outside. Keep them stored in the freezer in a sealed container or freezer bag. Allow a few minutes to thaw before diving in.
- 32 oz. container Plain Greek Yogurt
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 cup granola
- ⅓ cup dried cranberries
- In a small bowl mix together the honey and yogurt.
- Spread the mixture into the bottom of a 10 x 10"" pan (or other similar sized square pan) that has been covered in aluminum foil.
- Sprinkle the granola and dried cherries over the top of the yogurt, slightly pressing it into the yogurt with your hands.
- Freeze for about 1 hour, or until completely frozen.
- Remove from freezer, and cut into slices(makes about a dozen but some pieces may break apart like chocolate bark will ). Serve immediately, or keep in freezer in a freezer-safe bag or container for up to 30 days.
