Does that 4 P.M. snack attack have you ready to punch a hole in the wall? It’s okay it happens to us too. That’s why we absolutely LOVE this easy 4-Ingredient Blueberry Yogurt Bark Recipe. In this recipe, we pair two of our favorite foods — blueberries and yogurt– and enjoy them as a delicious, healthy frozen snack.
BTW This marks our third year (!!!) as spokespeople for the US Highbush Blueberry Council. We’ll continue to bring you a series of mouthwatering recipes featuring this little blue dynamo. We’re fans of this nutrition powerhouse because just one cup of fresh blueberries provides four essential nutrients: vitamin C, fiber, vitamin K and manganese, and phytonutrients called polyphenols. This group includes anthocyanins (163.3 mg/100 g), which are compounds that give blueberries their blue color.
When it comes to snacks, we typically recommend that our patients try to include a balance of carbs + protein and/or healthy fats (i.e. pairing an apple with almonds or an orange with string cheese). The carbs will help to provide energy, and the fats and protein will help to stabilize your blood sugar levels so the release of energy is more continuous (read: you’ll be satisfied for longer). In addition to the blueberries, we chose to feature Greek yogurt in this recipe. We love Greek yogurt simply because it has half the sugar as traditional yogurt and almost double the protein. Plus, you can’t beat the creamy texture.
Ready to give it a try? You’ll need to start with a baking dish lined with parchment paper — both a 7×11 or 9×9 baking dish will do the trick here. Next, take the full-fat Greek yogurt and spread it across your parchment paper. Then sprinkle the blueberries, pistachios and pomegranate seeds on top.
Finally, transfer the dish to the freezer and freeze for 5 to 6 hours or until frozen.
Once frozen, you can drizzle the honey on top (this is totally optional). Next, break the bark into a few pieces. Have some now and save the rest for later. Remember, this snack must be consumed shortly after exiting the freezer. So don’t throw this in your purse and expect it to last for hours, as it will melt with a quickness.
