Does this frozen yogurt bark make you feel patriotic? When I see it, I immediately think about the 4th of July…which happens to be Monday sooooo perfect timing yeah!!??!
I think themed food (in color or occasion) is extra cute, and oh-so-festive. There’s an emotional connection to seeing food with our eyes and tying in nostalgia before taking even the first bite. So whether it’s patriotism, childhood wonder, comfort, party-time, Easter, New Year’s, GNO or a baby shower, be sure to go the extra mile and tailor your cuisine to match the event.
You’ll be so happy to know that this frozen yogurt bark (modeled after the not-so-healthy fancy white chocolate bark you’ll see in high-end stores) is remarkably healthy, easy, and can be made vegan or non-vegan. These are perfect for summer because they’re cold, slightly sweet and really refreshing with bursts of real fruit POWER! Yes- I believe fruit is the ultimate super-hero because it’s filled with antioxidants to beat down the bad free-radicals of life, plus, it’s so yummy! So in essence, this bark IS LIFE!
Prepare the pan and get ready to sprinkle!
