What Is Protein Yoghurt Bark?


So, just what is yoghurt bark? It is literally Greek or vegan yoghurt spread thinly over a baking sheet and left in the freezer to solidify into bars or a breakable bark. This super healthy snack is easily prepared by mixing your favourite protein, fruit, nuts and seeds into the yoghurt before freezing. When ready, you simply crack the bark into bite-sized pieces (much like homemade chocolate bark), and enjoy. It makes such a healthy treat and the kids absolutely love it!


Is frozen yoghurt bark healthy? Yoghurt bark is a delicious treat providing a serving of dairy or vegan based protein, high fibre fruits and other nutrients depending on how you choose to make it. This recipe is naturally high in protein, whether you use dairy yoghurt like Greek, or plantbased yoghurt and boost the protein profile with a vegan protein powder. Either way, yoghurt bark makes a very quick and easy snack to make.


Yoghurt bark will also keep you feeling full for longer and can help reduce cravings and snacking between meals. As I mentioned above, I almost always add a scoop of vegan protein powder to mine to really boost the nutrition and make it a diabetic-friendly snack. The protein and healthy fats from nuts, balances any fructose from the fruit perfectly.


On a budget? This yoghurt bark recipe is quite affordable to make using only a mid-sized tub of yoghurt, a scoop of protein powder, and your toppings of choice. You can use fresh or frozen fruits, but I do recommend eating in-season whenever possible if you're on a tight budget. Chia seeds, sunflower or pumpkin seeds are affordable topping with many health benefits and provide a boost of protein as well.

My Protein Yoghurt Bark recipe is the perfect wholefood snack for busting those afternoon food cravings. All you need to make it is four ingredients. And the wonderful thing about this recipe is that you can flavour it any number of ways by varying the fruit, nuts, seeds, and other ingredients.


  1. Yoghurt: this is the base of the recipe. Whether you prefer Greek (or a vegan version such as soy or coconut), a good quality, low sugar yoghurt is the key to a super tasty bark.

  2. Fresh or frozen fruits: vitamin-rich fruit give this recipe a punch of sweetness and flavour. Unless using berries, I recommend chopping the fruit into small, bite-sized pieces.

  3. Nuts and seeds: adding these to your bark provides a nice, satisfying crunch as well as provides an excellent source of protein, healthy fat and trace minerals.


These are the key ingredients really, however there many other way to make it using many wholefood additions to mix and match the flavour and taste.

Healthy Yoghurt Bark Variations


Aside from just yoghurt, you can boost the nutrition and flavour of your yoghurt bark by adding a variety of other healthy ingredients:


  • Protein powder: stir in 30g of whey or vegan protein powder into the yoghurt before freezing. I recommend a top quality whey protein from grass-fed cows or a clean plantbased variety that contains both pea and brown rice protein to create the full amnio chain.

  • Granola or high fibre cereals: add a little crunch with homemade granola or a high fibre cereal.

  • Nuts and seeds: add a little crunch with crushed nuts like cashew, walnut, or pecan. Try seeds such as chia, flax, pumpkin and sesame.

  • Spices: a sprinkling of cinnamon can add a lovely flavour dimension and rev your metabolism; turmeric can boost immune, anise can help keep blood sugar levels in check. A few drops of vanilla gives the bark a divine ice cream-like flavour.

  • Superfood powder: boost the nutritional profile by adding your favourite superfood powders to the mix. Try 1-2 tsp of acai berry, your favourite greens blend, maca root, chocolaty raw cacao, or nourishing spirulina.

  • Probiotics: yes, that's right. Crack your probiotic capsule or powder right into the yoghurt and stir well before freezing.


One of the best part about this yoghurt bark recipe is how simple it is to make a variety of healthy ways. It'll literally take you 5-minutes to whisk, pour into a baking tray, flavour, and tomorrow's healthy snacks are done and dusted!

Food Sensitivities


What if I am dairy-free or allergic? This recipe can be made with any type of yoghurt, not just Greek. Experiment with coconut, cashew, soy or other non-dairy yoghurts to find one that provides the best consistency. Personally, I find a nice, unsweetened coconut yoghurt to be the best dairy-free option. Its freezes well and has that slight coco-nutty flavour that I really love, and since I am dairy-free, it won't bother my tummy.


What if I am diabetic, can still enjoy this recipe? Balancing your blood sugar is super important to your well-being. You can definitely still enjoy this recipe by focusing on using low carb, high fibre fruits like blueberries, blackberries, or raspberries, and counter balancing this with the addition of high fibre chia seeds, healthy fats from almonds, pumpkin or sunflower seeds. Choose a yoghurt that is very low in sugar and be sure to add a high quality protein powder to really ram up the protein content. This'll help keep your BS level.


If you choose a dairy-based protein, go for organic whey. And if you are plantbased like myself, go for a vegan version that has both pea and brown rice proteins to create the full amino chain. For me, I use Aussie Bodies, "Nourish". This brand has 16.5g of vegan sourced protein and only 3 carbs, 0.3g sugar and over 7g of dietary fibre per serving.

This yoghurt bark recipe is a delicious sweet snack you can enjoy guilt-free. It only takes a few minutes to prepare and is ready within 2-3 hours.


Frozen Protein Yoghurt Bark Recipe

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups Greek or coconut yoghurt, plain, unsweetened

  • 60g (2 scoops) Vanilla flavoured protein, whey or vegan based

  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen berries, organic

  • 1/4 cup fresh cherries, pitted

  • 1/2 mango, diced small

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon, ground

  • 3 tbsp wholegrain cereal or granola

  • 2-4 drops stevia liquid sweetener (if needed)


In a blender, add the yoghurt and berries. Pulse to combine then stir in the protein powder, vanilla, cinnamon and stevia. Blend well to combine, then pour the blended mixture into a shallow pan lined with baking paper. Spread evenly to cover the bottom of the pan. Depending on the pan size, the yoghurt mix should be a few centimetres thick. Add the cherries, mango and cereal evenly across the top. Cover and freeze the pan with the yoghurt mix for 2-3 hours. To serve, break off or cut into pieces. One to two small piece of bark count as a portion.


Batch Cook & Meal Prep


Yes, you can totally batch cook yoghurt bark. Yoghurt bark needs to be kept frozen to remain solid (or at least in my climate here in Australia, it sure does). You can store it right in the pan or break it up into pieces and keep in a Sistema Klip-it container for freshness.
