HEALTHY SNACK IDEAS

1. STRAWBERRY YOGURT BARK

INGREDIENTS

Yogurt (honey Greek Yogurt is delicious)

Dried strawberries

Or you can use fresh fruit, or even nuts, or any mix-in’s of your choice. Dried fruits keep the moisture/mushy feel and frozen texture down since the bark is frozen.

INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1. Line a flat pan with sides with parchment paper and spread evenly with yogurt, make sure it’s not too thin so that it breaks easily. I would say about 3/8 of an inch thick is good.

Step 2. Sprinkle with your mix-in (fruit, nuts, etc)

Step 3. Freeze for a few hours until completely frozen. Ours took about 4 hours for an 8″ square pan, but of course it will depend on the size of your pan. Remove from frozen yogurt from the pan and peel off the parchment paper. Break into pieces.
