Honey sweetened Greek Yogurt is covered with toasted walnuts and dried tropical fruit, then frozen into a bark that can be broken apart for a healthy frozen treat.
• 1 1/2 cup Whole milk Greek Yogurt (5%)
• 2 tablespoons honey
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 cup chopped California walnuts
• 1/2 cup dried tropical fruit (raisins, banana chips, sweetened dried pineapple, sweetened dried papaya, dried coconut)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Spread walnuts evenly on baking sheet and place in oven for 5-8 minutes. Check frequently to prevent burning. Remove from oven when nuts are lightly browned. Set aside to cool.
2. Line a 9 x 13 inch baking sheet with parchment paper.
3. In a small mixing bowl, add Greek yogurt, honey and vanilla. Stir well to combine.
4, Use a spatula to spread yogurt mixture into a thin layer over the bottom of the 9 x 13 inch baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
5. Add walnuts to the top of the yogurt, distributing evenly. Use the back of a fork to lightly press nuts into yogurt. Repeat with dried fruit.
6. Cover pan with aluminum foil and place in freezer overnight or until firm (at least 3 hours).
7. Cut or break into 8 pieces. (See notes for easier cutting.) Bark is ready to serve. To store for later, wrap individual pieces of bark in parchment paper and place in a freezer bag. Seal bag and return to freezer until ready to eat. Can be frozen for up to one month.
To make breaking bark easier, remove bark from freezer after 2 hours, and cut into 8 pieces with a knife or pizza cutter. Return to freezer for another hour or until firm. Bark should be easy to break or cut into pieces.
