Frozen Yogurt Bark is the easiest mid-day snack or warm weather treat that everyone will love. It’s made with just a few staple ingredients and is customizable with tons of topping ideas! Yogurt bark is a kid-friendly treat that is refreshing, protein-packed. and so much fun.
This Greek yogurt bark has become a freezer staple snack, treat, or dessert in our home! I love that I’m taking a healthy ingredient and making it a fun treat for everyone to enjoy.
We have so much fun making various versions of yogurt bark, and it’s so easy absolutely anybody can do this with you! I’m even thinking a yogurt bark bar would be an epic after-school activity and then later, dessert!
Yogurt Bark Ingredients
Froyo bark, as I call it, could not be easier, or more customizable! Here’s the base greek yogurt bark recipe, and go have fun with it!
Full-Fat Greek Yogurt: I use grass-fed Greek yogurt since it’s extra thick and protein-packed, but you can use regular plain yogurt, or even dairy-free yogurts to make this a dairy-free frozen yogurt treat!
Sweetener: I have made this with both maple syrup and honey. Both work great. The sweetener allows you to control what’s in your yogurt, rather than an already sweetened yogurt bought in the store. See below for my note on making this sweeter!
Vanilla Extract: If you’ve made your own vanilla extract, use that, or use whatever vanilla you have on hand!
Pinch Sea Salt: Just a little pinch to balance the flavors.
Toppings: Use what you have on hand or get creative! In the batch pictured, I used cherries, blueberries, raspberries, and coconut flakes! See below for other ideas!
Other Topping Ideas
The options for froyo bark are endless here! Get creative, use what you have on hand, go salty/sweet, go healthier or more dessert-like; the world is your bark bar, here! And let your little one(s), or anyone around, help you make it!
I am now dreaming up a chocolate peanut butter cookie crunch yogurt bark in my future!
- Sliced Strawberries
- Banana Slices
- Sliced Kiwi
- Mango Pieces
- Chopped Nuts
- Grated Chocolate or Chocolate Chips
- Mini Marshmallows
- Chopped Cookie Pieces
- Nut Butters
Can I Use a Different Yogurt?
Absolutely! Use a dairy-free yogurt to make it vegan/dairy-free, or use regular plain yogurt if you don’t have Greek yogurt!
Adjusting The Sweetness
You can make this a sweeter treat, or make it less sweet, based on your preference.
Fun Fact: things don’t taste as sweet when they are cold! So when you taste it when it’s warm, it will taste sweeter than it does as to when it’s frozen.
This recipe opts for a middle-of-the-road, not too sweet, but a little sweet, version! The yogurt taste really comes through, and while it will regardless (it is yogurt bark!), you can add roughly 2 more tablespoons of sweetener for a sweeter yogurt bark snack!
Tools We Used
Here are the recommended tools needed to make froyo bark!
How to Make Frozen Yogurt Bark
I promise this is so simple to make!
- Mix the yogurt with a little sweetener, vanilla, and a pinch of salt! This balances the tart flavor.
- Spread it onto a sheet pan lined with wax paper.
- Add desired toppings! Use what you have on hand and get creative.
- Break the bark into pieces. I love the imperfection in cracking it by hand, but you can cut it into squares, too!
Helpful Tips for Making It
- Use a rimmed sheet pan! This will avoid a major yogurt spill, you can picture this.
- Use wax paper or parchment paper! I love this brand.
- Try to spread as even of a layer as possible, so it thaws evenly! You don’t want it too thin, or it will thaw very quickly, so the thicker the better here! Roughly 1/4″ thick.
- Be patient and let it freeze: At minimum, freeze your froyo bark for 3 hours. Let me suggest making it the night before and having it the next day!
Storing Frozen Yogurt Bark
Store your yogurt bark in a container in the freezer until you are ready to eat. I like glass containers or reusable storage bags. When serving it, take out of the freezer just beforehand, so it softens up a little bit, but not too much! Keep your frozen yogurt bark in the freezer for up to 3 months and enjoy as you want a fun treat!
Does it Melt Quickly?
Short answer: It can!
Here’s what I do… When I’m ready to serve it, I remove the yogurt bark from the freezer and allow to sit for just a minute or two before serving, but don’t wait too long or it’ll thaw quicker than you’d like!

Wonderful recipe! My 17th month old devoured it. Super easy to make it post bedtime and now have a healthy snack. I made it with bananas, strawberries, coconut, and a dash of cinnamon for toppings. A great snack for the whole family.
Made my night! My LO loves it too.
