We’ve Seen the Future of Fro-Yo and It’s This Frozen Yogurt Bark
Freezing and shattering into geometric shards turns simple fruit-studded fro-yo into a modern art-esque dessert
Dippin’ Dots may claim to be the future of ice cream, but this fruit-studded “bark” is the future of frozen yogurt. From afar, the bright white, fruit-studded shards may look like a candy brittle – but up close it’s a fun and modern frozen way to enjoy a cool and refreshing treat.
The base for the frozen yogurt bark is non-frozen plain Greek yogurt. Those who don’t eat dairy can DIY a homemade vegan Greek yogurt or try Kite Hill’s almond milk-based version. You’ll combine it with honey or the substitute of your choice, along with salt and vanilla, and then spread into a layer on a sheet tray. Then you get to go all terrazzo, pressing in chunks of nuts, berries, and fruit to create a colorful pattern.
But the magic really happens once it has frozen into a solid sheet. You’ll shatter it into bark shards, and can then store the shards in freezer containers to grab whenever you need a little bite of fro-yo bliss. Alternately, make it a fancy dessert by stacking the geometric shards elegantly, perhaps on a plate swirled with a colorful bit of berry coulis.
