Today I am sharing you this delicious recipe that was submitted by one of my readers. This post was submitted by Hannah the Author of the Crunch & Cream. Hannah is 17 years old, disabled, and love cooking and developing my own recipes! My recipes suit a variety of diet types, but are usually quick and easy, taking less than half an hour. I often cook one-pan or vegetarian meals too, as well as some sweet recipes!

Ok, so maybe there aren’t in-season fresh fruits growing in abundance at the moment, but frozen is actually even more perfect for this frozen yogurt bark.
This fruity frozen yogurt bark is essentially a layer of frozen vanilla yogurt topped with swirls of lemon curd, strawberry jam, lemon zest, and frozen berries. It’s sooooo good – when it’s slightly softened, it’s actually super similar to ice cream. Finally, a socially acceptable way to eat ice cream for breakfast.
Obviously, this doesn’t need any time in the oven (or any heating at all), making it perfect for when you just want a quick and easy recipe to shove in the freezer to set and forget about it. Then, when you come back to it a few hours later, voila! A vaguely healthy sweet and fruity breakfast/snack. It’s perfect for kids too – they’d be great at helping to make it!
Another advantage of recipes like this is that there’s no washing up! Since you line your sheet pans with parchment paper, the yogurt bark can just be lifted out and broken into pieces. Who doesn’t love recipes without washing up?
There is one minor downside to this recipe: you have to eat it quickly or it melts! However, let it melt in a bowl and you really just have regular vanilla yogurt and frozen berries, so grab a spoon and dig in! On the opposite hand, if it’s been in the freezer quite a long time, it might be set pretty hard, so make sure you have 5 minutes spare to let it soften slightly (ideally in the fridge) for the best, creamiest texture.
You can customize this recipe in so many ways it’s incredible! Swap out vanilla yogurt for another flavour, jam and lemon curd for other preserves, and frozen berries for other fruit! Some great combos are:
- Vanilla yogurt with swirls of marmalade, jam and lemon curd, topped with frozen strawberry slices and orange & lemon zest
- Caramel or toffee yogurt with chocolate chips and slices of banana
- Vanilla yogurt with small pieces of mango, pineapple, and kiwi
0% fat yogurt works brilliantly in this recipe (in fact, it’s what I originally used) so you can customize your mix-ins to suit your tastes and diet as much as you need to!
If you’re looking for more no-bake snack recipes (especially sweet ones) check out these chocolate rice krispie cupcakes or this crumbly chocolate caramel bark; both are also perfect for kids and are super quick and easy to make, with very few ingredients! My mini cinnamon roll bites do require baking, but they take less than 30 minutes so they’re still super quick and easy!
For another comforting breakfast, try my one-pan smoked sausage & bacon potatoes – they’re so warming and delicious, perfect for while it’s still cold outside!
If you’re planning on serving this as dessert, then it goes great with my spicy chicken skewers & turmeric rice – the creaminess of the yogurt and freshness of the fruit is more than welcome after such a spicy and flavourful dinner!
