Frozen Yoghurt Bark with Honey Frozen Yoghurt Bark with Honey

Frozen Yoghurt Bark... I don't know who invented this but I'm very grateful for it! I have seen so many amazing variations on the internet and the options are just endless, I made this Frozen Yoghurt Bark with Honey and whatever I had at home, and you can do the same using fresh or frozen fruit, dried fruit, nuts, coconut flakes, cacao nibs or anything else you have on hand.

I really love including my kids in the kitchen, and this is one treat they can pretty much do themselves (apart from chopping up the fruit). They are also rewarded with a really delicious treat.

I use an organic sugar free homemade style yoghurt, any natural unsweetened yoghurt would work, organic would be even better!

I also like to include bananas as they are naturally sweet and when frozen, have a really nice ice cream texture. When my bananas get too brown and overripe, I usually freeze them on paddle pop sticks and store them in the freezer as a quick treat (just peel, chop in half, a paddle pop stick in each half and keep in a zip lock bag in the freezer). The Vietnamese also do this and call it Kem Chuoi (banana ice cream) where the also include sweetened coconut milk and roasted peanuts. YUM! (I would substitute the peanuts for almonds or macadamias)

Use anything you have at home on hand, like I said the options are endless! Here is the recipe for the yoghurt bark pictured:

You will need:
  • 2 small pots of natural unsweetened yoghurt (about 100mls)
  • 2 tsp honey or sweetener of choice (optional)
  • 1/2 banana peeled and sliced
  • 2 strawberries sliced
  • small handful of raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • Pulp of 2 passionfruit mixed with 2 tsp coconut water (or water)

  • Line a small tray or plate with baking paper
  • Spread the yoghurt just under 1 cm thick evenly over the baking paper
  • Swirl the honey through the yoghurt
  • I then start with the biggest pieces, so firstly I layer the banana and strawberry slices
  • Scatter the raspberries
  • Then lightly spread the passionfruit mixture over the top
  • Pop in the freezer until set, then chop up and enjoy immediately!
Hope you enjoy! May <3
