Lovin’ me some Greek Yogurt Benefits
There are so many different types of yogurts these days. With so many kinds to choose from, my go-to favorite is always Greek yogurt. I love it’s thicker, creamier texture. It is delicious by itself or it can be used as an alternative ingredient for a number of recipes. The versatility of Greek yogurt makes it one of the best dairy products.
Greek yogurt is an excellent source of calcium, protein, potassium, zinc, vitamins B6 and B12. Moreover, it contains probiotic cultures and has twice the amount of protein compared to other yogurts. It also provides a better option for those who have a bit of sensitivity to dairy products since it is lower in lactose. Furthermore, compared to regular yogurts who have about 15-17 grams of carbs, Greek yogurt only has 9 grams.
Healthy Snack: All day on that Greek Yogurt Fruit Bark
My boyfriend and I have both made a conscious effort to be mindful when it comes to snacking. Therefore, we’ve cut down a lot of the pre-packaged and processed snacks that we used to buy. Thus, I’m always looking for quick to prepare and healthy snack options.
This yogurt fruit bark really fits all of our snacking criteria: easy to make, healthy, and delicious. When I made this specific yogurt fruit bark, I had some leftover pomegranate seeds and blackberries in my fridge. However, you can literally use anything you have like fresh fruit, dried fruit, raisins, nuts, granola, shredded coconut, or chocolate chips. The topping combinations are endless.
For this recipe, I used Vanilla-flavored Greek Yogurt. However, you can use any flavor you’d like. I also added a tablespoon of honey to sweeten it a bit more to cater to my boyfriend’s taste buds. If you opt to go with a flavored yogurt, I don’t think it’s necessary to add any sweetener. Now, if you are planning on using plain Greek yogurt, you can add a bit of honey, maple syrup, agave, cassava syrup, or any other sweetener you prefer to have a bit more sweetness cut through.
Keep in mind that this is a frozen treat and will melt quite quickly. I would recommend taking out what you’re going to eat and enjoy. If you end up having leftovers, you can store it in a sealed container and keep in the freezer for up to 5 days. That’s IF they last that long.

To make this snack healthier, exclude the sweetener (honey and maple syrup), and use plain Greek yogurt.
