Base Ingredients:

  • Greek Yogurt
  • Dragon Fruit

Topping Options (Adjust to Taste):

  • Dragon Fruit
  • Banana
  • Strawberry


1. Preparation:

Start by ensuring that you have all the ingredients ready. You'll need Greek yogurt, dragon fruit (for the base), and your preferred toppings, such as more dragon fruit, banana, and strawberry.

2. Blending the Base:

Take the dragon fruit and blend it until you have a smooth puree. This will serve as the colorful and nutritious base of your yogurt bark.

3. Layering:

  • Prepare a tray or dish by lining it with parchment paper. The size of the tray can vary based on the quantity you wish to make. A rimmed baking sheet works well.
  • Pour the blended dragon fruit puree onto the lined tray. Spread it evenly to create a vibrant and uniform base layer.

4. Adding the Greek Yogurt:

Next, it's time to introduce the Greek yogurt. Gently spread it over the dragon fruit base, creating a delightful contrast of colors and flavors.

5. Toppings Galore:

  • Now, it's the fun part – decorating your yogurt bark. You can be as creative as you like. Add sliced dragon fruit, banana, strawberry, or any other fruits that you and your little one prefer.
  • Sprinkle the toppings evenly across the yogurt layer, ensuring that the various fruits are distributed for a visually appealing result.

6. Freezing:

   - Carefully transfer the tray to the freezer. Allow the yogurt bark to chill and solidify. This usually takes a few hours, so plan accordingly.

7. Serving:

  • Once the yogurt bark is frozen, remove it from the freezer.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut it into manageable pieces or break it into bite-sized chunks.

8. Enjoy:

  • Your homemade yogurt bark is now ready to be enjoyed! It's a refreshing and healthy treat for both your little one and the rest of the family.

This recipe is highly adaptable, so feel free to experiment with different fruits to suit your and your child's preferences. You'll have a delightful, cold snack that's perfect for warm days or anytime you crave a healthy and delicious treat.
