This has been my go-to recipe this summer whenever I’m craving ice cream but want to be healthier. Let me just clarify– it doesn’t taste like ice cream, okay? But it’s creamy, cold and refreshing and hits the spot. I have too many flavor variations I want to try! My kids (4 teenagers) all love it and I feel great that they are not getting too sugared up.

Did you know that you can just freeze yogurt and turn it into a yummy treat? Check out my DIY Yogurt Tubes for more refreshing and healthy treats (think homemade go-gurt, but due to copyright laws, I can’t call it that 😉 )

Ingredient Notes

Ingredients to make Yogurt Bark with berries. The ingredients are separated into bowls on a sheetpan. They include: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, pecans, chocolate chip, Greek yogurt, honey, and vanilla extract.
  • Berries– Summer in Michigan is all about the fresh produce! I love getting them fresh from the farm or markets, but your grocery store works just fine. Look for ripe berries. You can use frozen berries instead if you’d like.
  • Greek Yogurt– Greek has a great texture. I used plain, nonfat, and added honey and vanilla for flavor, but you have options here. You can use vanilla Greek yogurt, or even another flavor like strawberry. My favorite flavored brand is Oikos 000 because it uses stevia instead of added sugar. Regular yogurt (versus Greek) works too.
  • Honey– I love a less processed version of sugar. Sub maple syrup if you want, keep in mind that will change the flavor for sure. You can use more or less to suit your tastes.
  • Vanilla Extract– Again, how I’m adding and controlling the flavor.
  • Pecans– Adds a nutty crunch, feel free to swap out for another nut (walnuts or cashews would be fabulous) or leave them out.
  • Chocolate Chips– I used dark chocolate, but semi-sweet, milk, or bittersweet are all great. It’s going to get melted and swirled in for some indulgence. If you like sugar-free chips, Lily’s brand is really good (stevia based).

If you do like to stock up on fresh berries and produce, check out my guides on freezing them. You can then store them in your freezer and enjoy fresh flavor all year long!

There are so many yummy variations to this Yogurt Bark Recipe, and I’ve listed some below. Get creative!

How to Make Frozen Yogurt Bark

Be sure to check out the full recipe and ingredient list in the recipe card below.

Four image collage showing the step to make Greek yogurt bark.
  1. Stir the yogurt, honey and vanilla together.
  2. Spread it out on a parchment paper lined sheet pan.
  3. Melt the chocolate
  4. Swirl the chocolate in the yogurt, add the berries and pecans, then place flat in the freezer.
Squares of Frozen Yogurt Bark just cut on a cutting board. The bark has chocolate swirled through and contains strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and pecans.

After 2-3 hours, it will be frozen. Lift it out of the pan and place it on a cutting board and cut it into squares. Alternatively, you can just break it apart. ENJOY IMMEDIATELY!

Tips & Tricks

  • Using parchment paper, wax paper, or a silicon mat is necessary so it doesn’t stick to the pan.
  • You might be tempted to use longer than 20 second intervals in the microwave to melt your chocolate, but don’t! And stir at every interval. If you overcook the chocolate it will be stiff and you won’t be able to swirl it at all. 
  • The melted chocolate cools fast, so you’ll want to work quickly. Drop dollops over the spread out yogurt and then use a toothpick, skewer, or butter knife to swirl it around.
  • For a short cut, use vanilla Greek yogurt, if you do this omit the honey and vanilla extract.
  • If you don’t want to mess with swirling the chocolate, you could drizzle it on after everything is frozen, and give it 10-15 minutes back in the freezer to harden. OR skip the melting completely, and just use chocolate chips.
  • To make it even healthier, you can use a high protein yogurt and/or sugar free yogurt, such as Oikos 000. I’m very selective when it comes to sugar substitutes, this one uses stevia.

Flavor Combinations

Here are some other flavor combinations to try:

  • Strawberry lovers– Strawberry yogurt, strawberry extract, fresh strawberries. Optional: Swirl in strawberry jam too.
  • Chocolate covered strawberry– Strawberry yogurt, fresh strawberries, chocolate drizzle (or just chips), nuts or no nuts- you decide!
  • Berry Blast– Similar to this recipe, but load up on the berries. Greek yogurt, honey, vanilla, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries. Leave it that way, or add Almonds and dark chocolate.
  • Breakfast Bark- Same as Berry Blast above but add granola.
  • Chocolate Cherry– Greek yogurt, honey, cherry extract, fresh cherries (pitted and halved), chocolate drizzle.
  • Tropical– Greek yogurt, honey, vanilla extract, pineapple, mango, kiwi, orange, coconut flakes.
  • Holiday- Greek yogurt, honey, vanilla, fresh (or dried) cranberries, pistachios, white chocolate chips.
  • Peanut Butter Lovers– Swirl peanut butter into the Greek yogurt base, then top with banana slices, mini chocolate chips, and crushed peanuts. (bananas may discolor with time)
  • Cookies & Cream– Much less healthy, but so good! Mix crushed chocolate cookies (such as Oreos) into the yogurt, then add white chocolate chips and a drizzle of melted dark chocolate.
  • Just Peachy– Peach Greek yogurt, peach extract, peach slices.

    This recipe is so flexible and fun, the combinations are endless. What are your ideas?

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Why is my yogurt bark icy?

    If your yogurt has a higher water content, it can turn icy. To avoid this use a full fat, Greek yogurt. The thicker and creamier the yogurt is, the less icy it will be. I find that even if you do get a bit of an ‘icy’ turn out, it’s still delicious.

    Can I use regular yogurt instead of Greek yogurt?

    Yes, you can substitute regular yogurt for Greek yogurt. However, Greek yogurt tends to be thicker and creamier, which helps the bark hold its shape better when frozen.

    Can I use frozen fruits instead of fresh?

    Yes! Do NOT thaw them first, keep them frozen, place them in the yogurt, and then get into the freezer quickly. If they begin to melt, it will add some water content to your mixture which might make it a bit icy.

    Storing and Freezing

    This one needs to be stored in the freezer. After cutting it or breaking it apart, put it in an airtight container or zip lock freezer bag (squeeze as much air out as possible) and keep it in the freezer for up to 3 months. I doubt it will be around that long though!
