Ingredient Notes and Substitutes

  • Plain Greek yogurt: I like to use strained full fat Greek yogurt as these types of yogurt are thicker and higher in protein than other yogurts. But any plain yogurt will work. You can also substitute for a dairy-free yogurt.
  • Honey (liquid): I use honey as a sweetener in this recipe because it is a natural source of invert sugar which reduces the formation of ice crystals in frozen desserts. The honey can be substituted for maple syrup or your preferred sweetener. If you are making this yoghurt bark for children under one year of age do not use honey as your sweetener
  • Berries: These can be substituted for your favourite fresh or frozen berries. Blueberries, boysenberries and blackberries are all lovely or soft fruits like sliced bananas, mango, kiwi fruit and peaches
  • White chocolate drops: These can be substituted for milk or dark chocolate chips or left out entirely. Crunchy granola or chopped nuts (peanuts, pistachios, almonds, pecans, walnuts) coconut flakes or a drizzle of almond or peanut butter can also be nice.

FAQs

Why is my yogurt bark icy?

It is the water content of yogurt that causes the ice crystals to form. The thinner/runnier the yogurt the more likely it will become icy. Opt for a thick strained yogurt that has a lower water content. Using an invert sugar such as honey can also reduce ice crystal formation in frozen desserts.
