I love having freezer treats that hit that sweet spot without having tons of added sugar or ingredients that I don't feel good about. It's also just so simple and fun.
Freezer Yogurt Bark takes about 20-30 minutes to make but can stay in the freezer for a while. Most of the time is for the first layer to set in the freezer, the actual prep work is maybe 10-15 minutes.
It's perfect to grab and snack on when you need that little something. And it has protein in it which is great to help sustain you when you're snacking between meals while helping support blood sugar balance. I used my unflavored Be Well By Kelly protein powder because it mixes with anything but in this recipe, you could honestly use chocolate or vanilla flavored if you had a preference.
I love this bark because you can change the recipe depending on your feelings. This time around I just used what I had in my pantry but I have been on a big coconut kick recently so that was one I knew I wanted to incorporate. Almost like a little salted almond joy, yum!
What you need:
Choice of Yogurt (I used Cocoyo Plain, but you can use Greek Yogurt for extra protein if you can handle dairy)
1 Tbsp of Peanut butter
1 Scoop of protein powder (I used Be Well by Kelly's unflavored but you can also use vanilla for a little extra sweet)
1/2 cup Dark chocolate chips, melted (I used Hu's Kitchen Dairy Free baking chips bc they are a little less sweet than regular chocolate chips)
1 tbsp of coconut oil
What to do:
Pour your yogurt & peanut butter into a bowl and add in 1 scoop of your protein powder. Mix well so that any clumps get blended in.
Spread out your yogurt onto aluminum foil or parchment paper covering a flat surface. Pour the yogurt layer on the surface and place in the freezer for 15-20 minutes.
While the first layer is freezer, prep your chocolate by placing it in a microwave-safe bowl with the coconut oil. Microwave on medium power for 1-2 minutes until completely melted.
Then add the chocolate layer on top of the yogurt layer!
From here, the sky is the limit. You can add a variety of different toppings! I added a little bit of pink salt, sliced almonds, hemp seeds, and shredded coconut. You could even have some berries on there if you wanted!
Place this back in the freezer for 1-2 hours until completely frozen. After, you can cut it up into bites and keep it in a bag or container in the freezer for whenever you need (or want) it!
