Strawberry Orange Frozen Greek Yogurt Bark
This Strawberry Orange Frozen Greek Yogurt Bark is an easy-to-make, protein-packed healthy snack option that’s bursting with fruity flavour!
This was my first time experimenting with frozen greek yogurt bark, but it ended being so easy to make (not to mention it tasted delicious). If you’re a big frozen yogurt fan, this is an awesome alternative to make at home!
With summer just around the corner, I decided to make this frozen greek yogurt bark with fresh seasonal strawberries, paired with orange zest, vanilla, chopped almonds, and a sprinkle of cacao nibs.
All the ingredients come together super quickly (under 15 minutes), before allowing the bark to set in the freezer for a few hours. Once done, you simply need to break the bark into smaller pieces. That’s it!
I like to put the pieces in glass containers, and then store them in the freezer. Whenever you’re craving a delicious, refreshing snack, simply head to the freezer and grab one to enjoy.
Greek Yogurt Nutrition Benefits
A single 3/4-cup serving contains about 16 grams of complete protein (depending on the brand) – that’s double the amount of protein in regular yogurt. Your body uses these proteins to build and repair everything from your skin, hair, and nails, to your bones, muscles, and blood cells.
In terms of micronutrients, Greek yogurt is a great source of calcium, potassium, vitamin A, and vitamin B12.
I recommend choosing plain, unsweetened/unflavoured varieties made with simple ingredients – just milk, cream, and active bacterial cultures if possible.
The bacterial cultures added to Greek yogurt make it an excellent source of probiotic bacteria. Probiotics are known to support both your gut and overall health.
Frozen Greek Yogurt Bark is a Nutritionally-Balanced Snack
You guys might know that I like to approach my meals with balanced nutrition in mind. The same goes for snacks!
This healthy snack packs in protein (from the Greek yogurt), carbohydrates (from the yogurt and strawberries), healthy fats (almonds and yogurt), and even fibre (strawberries, almonds, and cacao nibs). This mix of different macronutrients is going to help keep you feeling full, which is something we want to achieve from our snack choices.
Even better – strawberries, orange zest, and cacao nibs also pack in an antioxidant-punch!
