I got big into yogurt bark recently and wanted to create something pretty and fun that looked cute so that kids would love it just as much as adults.
I’m not a fan of food colourings (I know when Buddy’s had them at a kids party or something because he’s even more bonkers than usual) but there are some seriously amazing natural colourings out there if you know what to look for.
The natural powders are not the cheapest but they’ll last ages and they’re super fun for colouring frostings, smoothies or whatever you fancy really!
Having said that this bark is just as delicious if you choose to do it without them – it’s such a good little snack to keep in the freezer for when you fancy it.
- 1 1/2 cups yogurt (I like coconut)
- 3 tsp maple syrup (optional)
- Two natural colourings, I’ve used pink pitaya powder and butterfly pea powder but you could use beetroot powder, matcha, turmeric or any other superfood powder
Split the yogurt into three bowls and stir in a teaspoon of maple syrup into each bowl if using. Spoon a small amount of your colourings into two of the three bowls (it’s best to start with less as you can always add more) and stir well.
Spoon alternating spoonfuls of the mixtures onto a lined baking tray, then use a chopstick or skewer to swirl the colours around. Top with sprinkles and freeze for at least four hours for the bark to set. Break up into pieces and enjoy from frozen. Store in the freezer for upto one month.
