Whole-Food, Plant-Based Spotlight
This is a whole-food, plant-based recipe. Ingredients like almond yogurt, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and honey-free granola contain no dairy or animal products and are full of flavor.
How to Make Frozen Yogurt Bark
- 2 cups / 480ml almond yogurt
- 1/3 cup / 50g chia seed
- 2 Tablespoons / 15g unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 Tablespoons / 20g flax seed
- 1/3 cup / 50g fresh blueberries
- 1/3 cup / 40g fresh raspberries
- 1/3 cup / 55g granola
- 1/3 cup / 65g chocolate chips
Step 1: Line the pan
Line a half sheet pan with parchment paper. Parchment paper creates a non-stick surface so you can lift the bark from the pan and break it apart easily. Without it, the mixture may stick to the pan.
Step 2: Let the Blending Begin
Place the yogurt, chia, flax, and cocoa powder into the Vitamix container and secure the lid. Start the blender on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to its highest speed and blend for 45 – 60 seconds using the tamper to press the ingredients toward the blades as needed.
Gradually increasing speed from low to high should take about 5-6 seconds. This allows ingredients to be pulled into the blades more efficiently and processed more effectively.
Find the tamper intimidating? Think of it as a handy tool for a better blend. Our culinary experts recommend aiming the base of the tamper at the four corners for the container to push the ingredients into the blades. Don’t worry about pushing the tamper in too deep; its design prevents the tamper from coming in contact with.
Step 3: Add Your Favorite Toppings
Once completely blended, pour the mixture over the parchment paper and spread it evenly with an offset spatula. Sprinkle with blueberries, raspberries, granola and chocolate chips. Feeling creative? Add whatever toppings you'd like — sliced strawberries, grapes, coconut, butterscotch chips, freeze dried fruits, and sliced bananas.
Step 4: Place in Freezer
Place into a freezer for 3 – 4 hours until completely solid. Once frozen, remove from the freezer and break into 12 – 14 pieces and store in a freezer-safe container or bag until ready to serve.
Frozen Yogurt Fruit Bark bits can be stored in the freezer for about a month, but this snack is so delicious, you probably won’t have any leftovers.
