Christmas Frozen Yogurt Bark – A fun and healthy Christmas themed snack that the kids will love making and eating.
Hello December, where did you come from? This year December has literally just crept up on me and I don’t feel organised one little bit. This is our first Christmas in Australia and it just feels strange celebrating all things Christmas in the sunshine. Don’t get me wrong I’m not complaining, I never complain about the sunshine, but it just doesn’t feel quite like Christmas….yet. To get in the Christmas spirit I have decided to start making Christmas themed treats for the boys. This Christmas Frozen Yogurt Bark is perfect for a summer Christmas!
Finn is totally in the Christmas mode now, he is hyper! If he isn’t singing his preschool Christmas concert songs he is going on about what he wants for Christmas, how many sleeps there are, what we will be having to eat, where we will go on Christmas eve etc. Last year I tried to make a healthy Christmas themed snack for him each day, I’m going to attempt it again this year to further heighten his excitement!
This Christmas Frozen Yogurt Bark is so easy to make and tastes delicious. I quite often make frozen yoghurt bark, chucking in any fruit that is about to turn at the end of the week. Today, I took a little more care over it. I used a cookie cutter to make kiwi Christmas trees and strategically placed all the fruit so the bark could be cut into cute little Christmas squares.
I’ve used natural greek yoghurt to make this, I haven’t added any sweetener as I’m lucky that my boys don’t need it. If you want to add more sweetness just mix in some honey or maple syrup to the yoghurt before spreading. You could also blend half a banana and stir it into the yoghurt.
If you have never tried frozen yoghurt bark then you definitely should. It is a tasty and healthy snack but be warned – it can get messy!
Christmas Frozen Yogurt Bark
- 500 g (2 cups) Natural Greek Yogurt **
- 3 Kiwi
- 5 Strawberries (chopped into small pieces)
- 1 tbsp Dried Cranberries
- Thinly slice the kiwis and then, using a tree shaped cookie cutter, cut a tree from each slice.*
- Line a rimmed baking tray with baking paper.
- Pour the yogurt into the centre of the tray and spread evenly. **
- Place the kiwi trees, strawberries and cranberries as desired onto the yogurt. (see picture to see how I arranged)

- Cut into sections and serve.
- Place sections into a zip lock bag and store in the freezer.
*You could chop up the remains of the kiwi slices and stir through the yogurt before spreading or scatter on top.
