Weekly Heart-Health Recipe Highlight: Frozen Yogurt Bark Delight!



Chill Out with this Summer Treat! Bursting with Fresh Fruits, this Frozen Delight is both Delicious and Heart-Healthy. With Less than 100 Calories and Minimal Added Sugar, it's the Perfect Cool Dessert for Hot Summer Days. Recipe Courtesy of the American Heart Association.


Ingredients for 8 servings

  • 1 1/2 cups low-fat plain Greek yogurt

  • 2 tablespoons honey or pure maple syrup

  • 2 tablespoons chopped unsalted almonds

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped mango

  • 1/2 cup blueberries

  • 1/4 cup blackberries or raspberries, chopped if large

 

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the yogurt and honey until combined.

  2. Line a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish with parchment paper. Using a spatula or knife, spread the yogurt mixture over the paper as thinly as possible.

  3. Sprinkle the almonds over the yogurt mixture. Using your fingertips, gently press the almonds into the yogurt mixture.

  4. Sprinkle the mango, blueberries, and raspberries overall. Using your fingertips, gently press the fruit into the yogurt mixture.

  5. Cover the dish with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Freeze overnight.

  6. At serving time, remove the baking dish from the freezer. Gently lift the parchment paper from the dish and transfer to a cutting board. Using your hands, break the bark into pieces (or you may need to hit it lightly on the surface of the cutting board). It's best to eat the bark immediately. It begins to melt 15 minutes after being removed from the freezer.

 

 

Quick Tips


Cooking Tip: Any leftover bark can be wrapped in parchment paper, put in a resealable plastic freezer bag, and frozen for up to one month.

 

Keep it Healthy: Most fruits can be used to make this bark, from pomegranate arils (seeds) in the fall to diced peaches in the summer.

 

Tip: For different variations, try shredded unsweetened coconut, sunflower or pumpkin seeds, and/or chopped pecans or walnuts.
