White Christmas Yoghurt Bark
Your kids will have a ball helping you make (and eat!) this simple Christmas yoghurt bark.
My husband’s Austrian relatives would probably have a good old chuckle at the idea of a frozen dessert for Christmas.
But here in Australia where it’s all about warmth, swims, sunshine and another shrimp on the barbie at Christmas time, this frozen yoghurt bark is the perfect way to dial the heat right down.
The beauty of this recipe is that once Christmas is done you can experiment with lots of fun toppings and enjoy a delicious and cooling snack right through the summer.
Combinations like mango, macadamia and coconut, or dark chocolate chip and banana, or you could swirl some homemade chia jam or St Dalfour’s raspberry jam through the yogurt and top with mixed frozen berries.
Clearly the possibilities are endlessly delicious.
Many of the ingredients in this recipe can be sourced from my one-stop-favourite, organic wholefoods online store, The Wholefood Collective. They go to great lengths to ensure everything they source is amazing quality, they stock all my favorite products and I don’t even have to leave the house! Oh and the cherry on the cake is they donate profits to improve food security for vulnerable Aussies.
