It’s no secret that I don’t love cooking. I do it though, because I like the outcome. However, I don’t truly have a passion for making homemade meals. Something about the mess stresses me out! BUT – I know that cooking at home is the healthiest way to feed my family and I am working on adding recipes to my arsenal that are quick and easy for the kids ( and I ) to grab and go.
My friend Madeline from Madeline Nutrition is an amazing cook – she’s a healthy motherhood blogger and always has the best ideas for making sure her toddler gets the right nutrition. So I took a page from her book, and made Yogurt Bark! It literally took me 5 minutes and the kids LOVED it.
I told them it was ice cream and they were totally ready to gobble it all down. Especially June. So, here’s my full fat, low carb / low sugar ( keto and paleo friendly) 4 ingredient Yogurt Bark!
We used Fage Total 5% full fat yogurt as the base. I love their yogurt for many reasons; its Non-GMO project verified, has absolutely no added sugars ( only natural milk sugar) and always has the thick creamy texture and tangy taste that the kids and I love.
I added hemp seeds, pure vanilla extract, raspberries and blueberries for our topping. After we ate it, I decided I’d actually include a bit more vanilla extract and potentially drizzle it with a bit of honey or agave. However, even as is – it was super yummy and full of nutritious goodness.
Here’s the recipe:
2 cups Fage Total 5% yogurt
2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
Honey for drizzling ( optional )
1 cup Raspberries
1 cup Blueberries
1/4 cup Hemp Seeds
Scoop your yogurt into a medium mixing bowl. Add the vanilla and mix well. Spread the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper until it is about 1/4 inch thick. Then add your toppings! I sprinkled the hemp seeds first, then added the berries. It is helpful to push the berries down into the yogurt a little bit so that they are fully incorporated into the bark and not just sitting on top. Add a drizzle of honey if desired and pop it in to the freezer for 3-4 hours until frozen solid!
Voila! A delicious Spring and Summer time treat. The variations are endless so pick some toppings that sound yummy to you and go for it!
Let me know in the comments if you try any particularly delicious varieties! Literally so many flavor combos are possible – this might be my new favorite health treat. Also check out how we eat our yogurt as a dessert here
