After-school hunger is real. But it can be hard to find a healthy snack that won’t spoil dinner. We’ve got you covered: this frozen yogurt bark is loaded with protein, and Greek yogurt is lower in sugar than the leading regular yogurts. Change up toppings to use up what you’ve got on hand.

Frozen Yogurt Bark

  • Prep time: 5 minutes
  • Freeze time: 4+ hours
  • Makes roughly 8 to 10 broken squares

Ingredients

  • 1 16-ounce honey vanilla Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup your favorite berries
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Method

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Stir the Greek yogurt to make it smooth and spreadable. Spread the entire container into a ¼ -inchthick rectangle, roughly 9 by 12 inches. Dot the top with berries and nuts. Be sure to keep the yogurt level, and freeze for 4 or more hours. When frozen solid, break up into chunks and drizzle with honey. Store in a plastic freezer bag in the freezer. Enjoy within a week for best results.

TIP: Don’t have room to freeze the bark on a cookie sheet? Make yogurt pops! Same recipe: Just mix the berries into the yogurt, and freeze in popsicle molds.

Alternate Toppings

  • Walnuts, bananas, and hot fudge
  • Granola and grapes
  • Dried fruit and chocolate chips
  • Blueberries and Cheerios
