Hey y’all…

First of all, please wholeheartedly appreciate that I got this accomplished today…in case you were wondering, these are my Christmas cards. With my dog. I’ve never been more proud.IMG_2489-4.JPGOther than getting in the holiday spirit with Christmas cards, I wanted to do a fun dessert for the holiday season, which we all know can be tempting. Frozen yogurt bites are undoubtedly delicious, so I decided to transform them into Christmas bark!fullsizerender-4We’re starting off with super simple ingredients, Greek yogurt and honey. This gives the fro-yo a little bit of sweetness and helps it hold together a little bit more! After that, I folded in a few dried cranberries.img_2476My goal WAS to do a red and white swirled bark, so I used strawberry Greek yogurt and food coloring…which yielded this pinkish color. It’s okay! We’re rolling with it.img_2475Next was my grand attempt to swirl the bark together, which didn’t end up going so well…mainly, we just got a giant pink mass. That’s what toppings are for! I used shredded coconut, dark chocolate from Trader Joe’s, and strawberries. This lends itself to whatever kinds of flavor combinations your heart desires!img_2478I let this chill on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper for about an hour. After that all there was left to do was break it up and enjoy it!fullsizerender-5I love finding new ways to treat myself and this Christmas bark is definitely it (although, it could also quite easily pass for Valentine’s Day bark…). It’s creamy, cool, and soooo refreshing! Definitely a welcome break from all those cookies, right?

Frozen Yogurt Holiday Bark

Ingredients

  • 2 individual containers nonfat Greek yogurt (about 2 cups), I used strawberry and vanilla
  • food coloring (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • topping ideas: dark chocolate pieces, shredded coconut, cranberries, strawberries, blueberries, etc.

Instructions

  1. Use a spatula to mix 1 tablespoon of honey per cup of yogurt. If you’re trying to attempt a swirl, use separate bowls and add desired food coloring. Fold in half of desired toppings.
  2. Spread one color of yogurt on a cookie sheet with wax paper. Add other yogurt and swirl, then add toppings.
  3. Place in freezer for one hour until bark is very firm. Break into large pieces and store in freezer between enjoying.
