Frozen Yogurt Bars are the healthy treat that everyone loves! Filled with yogurt, vibrant strawberries, topped with granola, and sweetened with honey. They are healthy enough to eat for breakfast and yummy enough to enjoy as dessert!
Where are all my ice cream fanatics at? I am right there with you, but store-bought ice cream and ice cream bars are packed with so many processed ingredients and refined sugars. So, I was on a mission to make a sweet treat that could pass for breakfast or dessert that was cold and only had natural sweeteners.
That’s when these frozen yogurt bars were born. And they are heavenly!
If you’re an ice cream lover, then I am confident this recipe for frozen yogurt bars is going to become your new BFF. Every bite is cold, naturally sweet, and oh so creamy. Give it a try! Now that I have you drooling try my Greek Yogurt Frozen Banana Pops too. 🙂
1. Strawberries – They are the perfect addition to these yogurt bars! They are filled with lots of vitamin C, folate, potassium, manganese, iron, and more. Plus, they are gorgeous and add a beautiful pop of color.
2. Yogurt – I like to use plain yogurt because it doesn’t have any added sugars. You could use flavored if you wanted, but be mindful of the added ingredients, so you don’t end up with an unhealthy dessert.
3. Sweetener – I recommend using honey or agave for the best results.
4. Granola – Adding granola gives the yogurt bars some added depth. Be careful when choosing granola, so you don’t pick something that is too high in sugar. This Lightened Up Homemade Granola is a delicious and healthy option!
HOW TO MAKE FROZEN YOGURT BARS
1. Line a baking tray with a piece of parchment paper.
2. Combine the yogurt, half of the berries, and honey together.
3. Pour all of the yogurt mixture on the baking sheet and spread it out with a spatula until it’s in a smooth layer.
4. Add the rest of the strawberry slices and granola to the yogurt.
5. Place the pan in the freezer for a minimum of 4 hours.
6. Remove the baking sheet out of the freezer and break it into chunks using your hands or a sharp knife.
FAQS ABOUT FROZEN YOGURT BARS
IS IT OKAY TO ADD CHOCOLATE?
Oh yes, if you are a chocolate lover, you already know how good chocolate and strawberries taste together. You can either use a chocolate bar and chop it up or add in chocolate chips. Both are great options. Combine them with the yogurt and berries and stir. Or simply sprinkle some on top before freezing. I recommend using stevia-sweetened chocolate if possible.
I like to use dark chocolate whenever possible, but white chocolate is also yummy with strawberries.
Another option is to use my Chocolate Chia Granola.
CAN I ADD OTHER KINDS OF FRUIT?
Yes, absolutely! When it comes to fruit, the options are endless. I am a huge fan of strawberries, so they are my go-to choice often. However, you could use blueberries, raspberries, peaches, kiwi, cherries, banana, or anything else you like. I recommend that you slice whatever fruit you use or cut it into smaller pieces. Large chunks of fruit are much harder to eat, especially if you are feeding it to smaller children.
CAN I USE GREEK YOGURT?
Yep, Greek yogurt is more than acceptable to use. It’s a fantastic source of vitamin B6 and B12. Plus, it’s jam-packed with calcium, zinc, protein, and potassium too. Due to the thickness of Greek yogurt versus the texture of the regular plain yogurt, it’s even creamier. So, the results of using Greek yogurt is going to give you an extra creamy experience.
WHAT ELSE CAN I ADD TO YOGURT BARS?
One thing I really love about this frozen yogurt bars recipe is how versatile it is. Unsweetened shredded coconut, chopped pistachios, almonds, pecans, cranberries, cinnamon, cocoa powder, or anything else you enjoy would be worth a try. Play around with the flavors until you find something that you love. I love everything about them as the recipe is written, but once in a while, I will add in something extra. Have fun customizing!
Yogurt is an excellent ingredient because there are so many ways you can serve it. Another snack/dessert idea I love is this Simple Yogurt Peanut Butter Apple Dip. Or if you want something extra indulgent and decadent, try this Dairy-Free Strawberry Parfait.
