Whipped Yogurt (this is my Greek Whipped Yogurt Recipe)
- Greek Yogurt. This is healthier than regular yogurt. It's rich in protein so you stay full for longer. Use full-fat yogurt to ensure creaminess. This will also prevent it from getting too icy.
- Heavy Whipping Cream. This is essential for a fluffy consistency.
- Vanilla Extract. This balances out the other flavors.
- Honey. Add those so the yogurt is sweet and not too tart.
- Sunflower Butter. This healthy fat provides extra protein and depth of flavor.
If not using my homemade whipped yogurt recipe, use the ingredients below.
- Yogurt. For this yogurt bark recipe, use vanilla flavored.
- Assorted fruit. See below for suggestions.
- Granola. This provides the perfect amount of crunch for an amazing texture.
- Honey. Try my favorite organic honey brand.
- Dash of coarse salt. A little goes a long way.
How to Make Yogurt Bark
This recipe is pretty hands-off. After mixing the ingredients, you set it in the freezer and wait for the magic to happen!
Whip Ingredients Together
In a large bowl or stand mixer, pour in the recipe ingredients: Greek yogurt, honey, vanilla extract, sunflower butter, and whipping cream. Whip on medium speed (around 7-8) for up to two to three minutes or until the yogurt begins to form "stiff peaks".
Scraping the bowl's sides during mixing will ensure the ingredients are mixed thoroughly. After the yogurt has reached the desired consistency, simply use a spatula to remove it from the bowl.
Spread and Add Fruit
Pour whipped yogurt on a lined baking sheet, distribute and spread evenly. Add fresh fruit. Then freeze it for 3-4 hours. Finally, carefully use a knife (or your hands) to break a part yogurt bark.
Tips and Tricks
- Be sure to line a baking sheet before freezing. Without parchment paper, the yogurt will adhere to the sheet and be difficult to remove.
- To cut the yogurt bark, lift it from the pan then chop it on a cutting board.
- Chop all toppings up into bite-size pieces so the bark is easy to break. Also make sure nothing is too bulky so the bark has a flat-ish shape.
- Do not rush the process. The bark needs at least 3 hours in the freezer in order to properly set.
Get festive when adorning your vanilla yogurt bark because there are no rules when it comes to this versatile dessert!
- Nuts. This would be a good alternative to granola. Try pistachio, walnuts, sliced almonds, shredded coconut, or hazelnut.
- Sweetener. Use agave or maple syrup to sweeten the whipped yogurt.
- Yogurt. I love making this yogurt bark recipe with vanilla but you could use any variety of flavors you'd like. Strawberry yogurt bark would be delicious.
- Add Cacao Powder. If you love chocolate bark, add that rich chocolatey flavor to your yogurt. Not to be confused with cocoa powder, cacao is packed with antioxidants and vitamins so you get a nutrient boost too.
- Fruit. This adds color, nutrients, and lots of flavor! Try any combination of pomegranates, blueberries, raspberries, mangos, sliced kiwi, strawberries, bananas, and cherries.
- Extract flavor. You can certainly substitute lemon, strawberry, or any flavor that suits your taste!
- Additional Yogurt Bark Toppings. Dark chocolate chips, pretzels, almond butter, peanut butter, chia seeds... have fun making this yogurt fruit bark recipe your own.
- Make It Vegan. Use a dairy-free yogurt option like cashew yogurt and use agave instead of honey.
Does yogurt bark melt?
The yogurt bark does melt quite fast so only serve when ready to consume.
Can you use foil for yogurt bark?
You can but I find that parchment paper is easier to use because the bark comes right off.
How to Store Leftovers
Store leftover yogurt bark in an airtight container in the freezer for up to one month.
Can I make Yogurt Bark in advance?
Absolutely! Yogurt bark lasts up to one month in the freezer.
