How to Make Frozen Yogurt Bark
To make frozen yogurt bark, first line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Then, spread the yogurt over the parchment in a nice, even layer. The yogurt should be about ¼ to ½ inch thick. The thicker the bark, the longer it will take to freeze.
Next, place the toppings on the yogurt. Add as little or as much as you want.
And lastly, place the bark in the freezer for at least two hours. Depending on the type of yogurt you use and the thickness of the bark, freezing time may vary.
After freezing, cut the bark to desired size and eat!
How to Store Frozen Yogurt Bark
Frozen yogurt bark must be stored in the freezer, as it melts at room temperature. Place it in a baggie or storage container and eat within one month.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is yogurt paleo?
Yogurt can be paleo, it just depends on the type of yogurt and added ingredients. Many unsweetened coconut or nut milk yogurts (like almond or cashew) are paleo friendly. Any yogurt with dairy or refined sugar (like cane sugar) is not paleo.
What is the best paleo yogurt?
My favorite paleo yogurts are either coconut or almond based. Cocoyo is a great brand of coconut yogurt; even their sweetened versions are paleo friendly. I also like Coyo's unsweetened coconut milk yogurt. (Yes, there is a Cocoyo and a Coyo brand.) A great almond milk yogurt is Kitehill's unsweetened almond milk yogurt.
How long does it take yogurt to freeze?
This depends on the type of yogurt you're using. And, if you're making yogurt bark, how thick you make the bark. That being said, freeze time is typically between 2-3 hours.
Does frozen yogurt bark melt?
Yes, frozen yogurt bark does melt at room temperature. Therefore, it needs to be stored in the freezer and eaten within 15-20 minutes after taking it out.
