Tips and Variations
The great thing about yogurt bark is how customizable it is. You can make it just to your liking with all of your favorite toppings!
- Different Types of Yogurt: The kind of yogurt is very easily changed out for your preferred flavor, but the whole milk varieties freezer better and with fewer ice crystals. Try out Greek yogurt for an extra tang to your bark!
- Swap Out Fruit: You may use whichever fruit you choose, such as kiwis, pineapple, mango, cherries, pomegranate, or other berries. If you use frozen fruit instead of fresh, avoid using larger ones like strawberries or pineapple. The large fruits are better used fresh so you can cut them into smaller pieces, making them easier to eat.
- Make Your Yogurt Bark Sweeter: If you don’t want your frozen yogurt bark to be too tangy, add a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.
- More Toppings: Other topping ideas include: various nuts or seeds, granola, chocolate chips, other freeze-dried fruits, peanut butter cups, or even M&Ms or Oreos!
How Long Does Frozen Yogurt Bark Last?
The great thing about frozen yogurt bark is it has a nice, long shelf life. You can enjoy it all summer long!
- In the Freezer: Freeze leftover bark in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to 3 months. I recommend enjoying it in the first month or so, this is when it will have the best texture.
