Frozen Yogurt Bark Ingredients
- Vegan yogurt – Vegan yogurt contains the same benefits as dairy yogurt—like probiotics—but without any of the cruelty! Plus, they tend to be easier to digest since they are lactose free. The yogurt in this recipe will help make your frozen bark deliciously creamy! I recommend going for unsweetened yogurt because you can always sweeten it however much you like with the maple syrup.
- Vanilla extract – While not absolutely necessary, vanilla extract helps give this recipe that extra little boost of flavor that can really make a difference!
- Shredded coconut – The raw “meat” inside of coconuts is actually known as the kernel. It has a firm texture and a somewhat sweet flavor. Coconut is high in fat, but these are relatively healthy fats (medium-chain triglycerides). Plus, coconut contains protein and significant amounts of manganese, copper, iron, and selenium.
- Salt – Just a little goes a long way and helps complement the other flavors, so don’t skip it!
- Maple syrup – Maple syrup is a delicious sweetener, as we all know from pancakes. That said, it’s a great vegan sweetener in general. While it might not necessarily be all that much healthier than regular sugar, it does at least contain some minerals and antioxidants, including high amounts of manganese and zinc.
- Fresh strawberries – Did you know the strawberry we all eat today is actually a European hybrid of two other varieties (Chilean and North American)? These delicious, bright red berries pack a ton of vitamin C and manganese and they’re also a good source of folate (B9) and potassium. They’re also rich in antioxidants!
- Fresh raspberries – Raspberries actually come in various colors, but the red variety is by far the most common. Raspberries, like other berries, are not only delicious but highly nutritious, with high amounts of vitamin C, manganese, vitamin K, iron, and magnesium.
- Fresh blueberries – The final berry on our list, blueberries are dark blue, nutrient-dense bites of goodness. They contain high amounts of vitamin C, vitamin K, and manganese. Like most fruit, they’re high in fiber but low in calories. Not only that, but blueberries are particularly high in anthocyanins, a potent antioxidant.
The Best Dairy-Free Yogurt
What’s the best dairy-free yogurt? Good question! Ultimately, it comes down to your preferences.
Personally, I prefer to get plain, unsweetened yogurt and then add maple syrup and vanilla extract. That way, I know there’s nothing else in it and I can make it exactly as sweet as I like.

Tips for Making Yogurt Bark
Here are some helpful tips for making this yogurt bark recipe!
- Chop everything uniformly. You can use the blueberries as a guide and cut the raspberries and strawberries to roughly that size. This way you’ll get something yummy in each bite!
- Spread the yogurt as evenly as possible. This way everything freezes evenly! Also, be careful not to spread it too thin.
- Try to spread out the fruit and coconut evenly so you get something in every bite.
- Make sure to line your baking sheet with parchment paper so it easily comes out of the pan.
- Use fresh fruit so that you can easily cut them into bite-sized pieces. (If using frozen, you can thaw first, but it may be a bit harder.)
- Make double the recipe to have plenty on hand for a gathering or whenever a craving strikes!
- Store pieces of the bark in a freezer-safe container or baggie for up to three months.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the yogurt, maple syrup or agave, vanilla extract, and salt until well combined.
Spread the yogurt onto the baking sheet so it’s about 1/2-inch thick.
Sprinkle the berries and shredded coconut evenly over top. Add any other desired toppings now as well.
Place the baking sheet in the freezer for at least 3 hours or until completely frozen.
Cut or break into pieces and serve!
Store leftovers in a freezer-safe container or baggie for up to 3 months.
