I am always looking for simple and healthy snacks to get me through the day. Whether it is for my commute on the train, something to hold me over until lunch or before I play volleyball, I often find my stomach grumbling for food. I recently came across this frozen greek yogurt recipe and instantly knew I needed to give it a try. After all, with the ingredients and directions it calls for, it would be very hard to mess it up.
I really enjoy greek yogurt and have it a few times a week. It packs a lot of protein, which is good for post-workouts, and it fills me up. I usually add honey and granola when I eat it because I find the taste of plain greek yogurt to be a little bland. When you eat something so often you run the risk of becoming tired of it. However, this recipe keeps my taste for yogurt alive as it switches up the consistency and adds some fruit and flavors to the mix.
For this recipe, you will need:
- 2 cups of plain greek yogurt (or use a flavor that you enjoy)
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- Assorted fruit, to taste
To make this bark, the process is fairly simple: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a bowl mix together the greek yogurt and honey.
Next spread the yogurt onto the parchment paper and pan - about .5 inch thick. Cut the fruit into the size you prefer. (I did most of mine in halves or in threes.) Then, add the fruit to top.
Freeze for about 4 - 6 hours. Once frozen, break the bark into pieces and enjoy! As you can imagine, this melts pretty quickly once it is out of the freezer, so you will need to eat it quickly.
It is really delicious and a great snack to satisfy a craving or grumble during your busy day.
