This week's Recipe Feature: Red, White, and Blueberry Greek Yogurt Bark

Greek Yogurt Bark Recipe

Now doesn't that dessert look delicious? And it is super nutritious with lots of calcium and protein (from the Greek yogurt) and tons of antioxidants (from the organic fruits)! This recipe serves 12, but you may want to double or triple it since your guests won't be able to only have 1 piece!

Ingredients: Makes about 12 servings

  • 3 cups Vanilla Greek Yogurt
  • 1 cup blueberries*
  • 8-10 strawberries* (stems removed and sliced lengthwise into thirds or quaters)

*Organic berries, especially strawberries, are best since they are on the Dirty Dozen list and high risk for pesticide residue contamination!

Instructions:

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Wash all fruit very well and let dry. Remove all stems and slice strawberries lengthwise into halves or thirds, depending on the size.
  3. Pour Greek Yogurt onto the prepared baking sheet and spread into a thin layer.
  4. Top with blueberries and strawberries (and up to 1/3 cup no-sugar added granola or sliced almonds if desired).
  5. Cover baking sheet with aluminum foil and place in the freezer for two hours, or overnight, until the Bark is fully frozen.
  6. Break the Bark into smaller pieces (or slice into desired squares) and serve immediately or keep stored pieces in the freezer in an airtight container or bag.

*You may want to remove the frozen Bark pieces from the freezer about 10 minutes or so before serving if pieces are too hard to bite into.
