Yogurt Unicorn Bark

Sometimes you just need some sprinkles and a little magic to get you through the day ✨!

This Yogurt Unicorn Bark is a fun and easy recipe to make with your toddlers or kids and uses only 3-ingredients!

I’m not sure if it’s a good or bad thing that this amazing bark only takes 5 minutes to make before you pop it into the freezer to get all icy cold. That means you have like a zillion and half more hours in the day to have to entertain the kiddos🤪.

I will say that breaking and eating this delicious bark is a fun project that will bring a little sunshine and love into your day.

And because we are all entering a new era of parenting.. it’s COMPLETELY okay to serve this yogurt bark for breakfast, snack, lunch AND even dessert. And all in one day, if that is what it takes to make it through the day.. cuz let’s face it, you have enough on your plate to deal with this month.

Ingredients 

Instructions

  • Drop spoonfuls of the different color yogurts into the baking dish in a random fashion (see video for more guidance). Using a spoon, swirl the yogurts together and gently smooth out. You don't want to over stir or your colors will get completely mix together.

Notes

Age: 1 year and up
Yogurt: I used vanilla Greek yogurt for this recipe, but you can use plain yogurt with 3-4 tbsps of added sweetener (honey, maple syrup, aguave nectar), honey or vanilla yogurt. I prefer using Greek sytle yogurt for this recipe as it has more protein than the regular version. But really any yogurt will work.
Dairy-Free: to make this dairy-free, you can use any soy, nut or plant-based yogurt you prefer. 
Food-Dye: I used this brand of plant-based food dye, but you can use any type of food dye you prfer. 
Non Food-Dye Version: you can also blend the yogurt with different frozen berries for a similar color effect. Simply place a 1/2 cup of yogurt into a smaller type of blender or food processor and blend with 1/3 cup of frozen fruit (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries or raspberries). 
Sprinkles: we used this brand of sprinkles because they use plant-based dye. But any sprinkles or toppings you have will work. 
Storage: will last 2 months in the freezer
