We live on a great street. Everyone is so friendly and our neighbors are so kind and generous.
Last week, one of our neighbors brought us a quart of strawberries, just to say, “Happy summer.” How sweet is that?
I saw a recipe for strawberry yogurt bark that I wanted to try, but that recipe called for a bunch of extras, like honey for sweetener and the addition of crunchy bits (chocolate chips or nuts).
I wanted something a lot more simple: Just yogurt and berries.
Sure, you can add sweeteners to yogurt bark, but adding sugars to everything isn’t that great for your diet or your taste buds.
I’m a fan of chocolate and sugar, so I’m not exactly the poster child for no sweeteners, but I do my best. So none of that is in this recipe.
All we can do is try, right?

Strawberry Yogurt Bark Ingredients:
How To Make Strawberry Yogurt Bark:
Wash your strawberries and dice all but three of them.
Mix together the diced strawberries and yogurt.
Slice the reserved strawberries lengthwise. Carefully top the yogurt mixture with them.
Freeze the mixture for two hours. It will not be completely frozen yet, but this will save you a lot of effort later.
While it’s still freezing (not frozen), take the parchment paper out from the pan and set it on a cutting board.
Use a large knife to cut the strawberry yogurt bark into chunks.
Then, put the sliced yogurt bark and parchment paper back into the pan and freeze it overnight.
When you take it out the next day, you’ll easily be able to snap it into chunks since the crystals between the slices will be so thin.
Strawberry Yogurt Bark Variations:
Remember that recipe I based this off of? It had a ton of additions. So, if you wanted to make something similar but different, we have a few ideas for you.
If you need more inspiration, just look at the frozen yogurt bars in your grocery store’s freezer. Use this recipe to recreate those in a much more frugal way.
Strawberry Chocolate Yogurt Bark
Add a half cup of mini chocolate chips into the mixture with the berries and yogurt.
Strawberry Granola Yogurt Bark
Mix a cup of your favorite granola into the berries and yogurt mixture. Using bagged granola that also has chocolate pieces is a great idea too.
Strawberry Honey Almond Yogurt Bark
Mix two tablespoons of honey and a dozen sliced almonds into the mixture with the berries and yogurt. Be sure to save a few of the almonds for a garnish on top of the yogurt bark.
Frozen Yogurt Pops
Instead of making this into a yogurt bark, you can turn it into frozen yogurt pops.
After you mixed the berries and yogurt together, pour the mixture into a reusable ice pop mold.
Leave those in the freezer overnight, skipping the step where you cut the yogurt bark into pieces (obviously, since it’s not yogurt bark anymore).
When you are ready to eat them, you will need to sit the reusable ice pop mold on the counter for a little bit before serving. These will not instantly pull out of the ice pop mold. They do need to thaw just a bit before they’ll pop out.
If you only want to eat one, you can stick the ice pop tray back in the freezer, even if the pops have defrosted a little when you were waiting to pull one out. That won’t affect the taste or texture of the remaining pops.
