Frozen Yogurt Bark with Mango Recipe
“What did the yogurt say when it found out that Greek yogurt has more protein? No whey! 😎”
It’s no secret that a LOT of people – myself included – enjoy frozen yogurt, so you’re going to love frozen yogurt bark! It is a sweet treat, the perfect blend of creamy, cold, and crispy, making it an irresistible option for anyone with a sweet tooth AND folks living in places with intense heat!
And don’t overthink it – frozen yogurt bark is simple to prepare, so even your kids can get involved and learn a bit more about nutrition and prioritizing natural foods!
All you need is yogurt, a sweetener (will explain shortly), and topping(s) of your choice, usually fruit or nuts. Simply spread your sweetened yogurt onto a lined baking sheet, sprinkle with your chosen toppings, and freeze. In just a few hours, you’ll have a bangin treat with a taste as satisfying as the colorful presentation!
Mango enters the chat…
Remember how I mentioned that you may need a sweetener? Say hello to mango.
Don’t get me wrong – the frozen yogurt bark is exceptional on its own, but adding mango unlocks another flavor level! Mango is not just flavorful but also adds tropical freshness to the bark. Its natural sweetness – because of its high sugar content – eliminates the need for too much-added sugar (if one is even needed at all), making this combination an even more healthful choice.
Why does this work in the bark?
When frozen, mango pieces become chewy, almost like a natural fudge-like candy, providing a delightful contrast to the yogurt’s smoothness. And when mixed together and then frozen, the bark results in a more dense and less icy consistency.
Further, the striking yellow color of the mango enhances the visual allure of the frozen yogurt bark! We eat with our eyes FIRST! This vibrancy turns an already delicious treat into a feast for the eyes and tastebuds.
Simple. Quick. Delicious. And when mango is incorporated, it’s like a tropical vacation with every bite.
Give this a go at home, makes a great after-school or post-workout treat! Try making this easy dessert at home, and you’ll quickly understand why frozen yogurt bark has become the new favorite in households across the globe.
Frozen Yogurt Bark with Mango Recipe
2 cups Stonyfield Organic Yogurt
- plain or vanilla
- 2 cups frozen mango
chopped raw pistachios
- almonds, pecans, walnuts
- frozen berries
- macros were calculated using nutrition for 1 cup of crushed almonds
Add yogurt and mango to a blender and process until smooth. Add 1 tablespoon of water as needed to assist with mixing.
ATTN those with a sweet tooth: if you want it be a bit sweeter, I recommend adding agave, a date, or coconut sugar (but it may slightly darken the bark FYI)
Line a baking tray with parchment and pour in the mango-flavored yogurt.
Add your choice of toppings such as nuts, dried fruits, frozen berries, coconut flakes, cacao nibs – whatever YOU like! Keep in mind that individual macros will vary depending on the toppings you add.
Cover and place in the freezer and freeze until solid, about 6 – 8 hours (or overnight).
Then remove from the tray and peel off the parchment paper. Use the parchment paper as a barrier for your hands and break the mango yogurt into pieces, creating bark. Store in the freezer in a container and enjoy whenever you need a quick treat! Great for after-school treats!
