Holy Sh*t, These Greek Yogurt Ice Cream Bars Are Insanely Good

Holy Sh*t, These Greek Yogurt Ice Cream Bars Are Insanely Good

We have a bit of an obsession with healthy ice creams; from Halo Top to Enlightened, we’re always on the prowl for a good-for-you frozen treat. When a box of Yasso Frozen Greek Yogurt bars came to our desks, it was mere minutes before all of them were gone. The results? Amazing. Everyone was super into all the flavors.

Yasso’s sweet treats ring in at 100 calories a pop (pun intended), and 120 calories per sandwich. They each have five grams of protein, and are low in sugar – seven grams in the sandwiches and 14 grams in the pops (much, MUCH lower in sugar than the Unicorn Frappuccino). The bars have two grams of fat, while the sandwiches have 3.5 grams. You’ll also get some gut-friendly probiotics from the Greek yogurt, which is a nice added health bonus.

So how do they taste? Damn delicious. Here’s a breakdown of the flavors we tried – S’mores, Toffee Caramel Chocolate Chip, and Black Raspberry Chip bars, and Vanilla and Mint cookie sandwiches.

S’Mores

  • WOW.
  • OMG, it tastes like graham cracker! These are stupid good. Perfection.
  • Can’t believe it’s only 100 calories
  • You can really taste the graham cracker, and I like the marshmallow, but I’m not sure what they’re made of. The only reason I gave it a 4 is because of the aftertaste.
  • Literally tastes like a straight-up frozen s’more.

Mint Sandwich

  • Doesn’t taste that healthy!
  • I was put off by the tartness of Greek yogurt with mint, but with the Oreo it works!
  • It wasn’t all that minty, but somehow refreshing.
  • Had a funny aftertaste, but I keep going back for more. Overall pretty impressive for a healthy dessert.

Vanilla Sandwich

  • So good and yummy!
  • Can’t even taste the difference [between this and a regular ice cream sandwich].

Black Raspberry Chip

  • Great balance of fruit and chocolate!
  • Love the white and dark chocolate with the raspberry – a bit of an aftertaste though!

Toffee Caramel Chocolate Chip

  • Very rich! Good, but not sure I could finish it all.
  • Good ice cream flavor!

Galaxy Yogurt Bark To Keep You Full and Fit

Recipe by Mona Zavosh

Ingredients

  1. Blueberry Acai Layer
  2. 1 cup Greek yogurt
  3. 1 100-gram pack unsweetened organic acai puree
  4. 1 ½ cups organic wild blueberries
  5. 2 tablespoons freeze-dried blueberry powder
  6. 1 tablespoon raw organic honey
  7. Matcha Layer
  8. ¼ cup Greek yogurt
  9. ½ teaspoon matcha green tea powder
  10. 1 tablespoon organic raw honey
  11. Turmeric Layer
  12. ¼ cup Greek yogurt
  13. ¾ cup frozen pineapple
  14. ¼ teaspoon turmeric
  15. 1 tablespoon organic raw honey
  16. Strawberry Layer
  17. ¼ cup Greek yogurt
  18. ⅓ cup frozen organic strawberries
  19. 1 ½ tablespoons freeze-dried strawberry powder
  20. 2 teaspoons organic raw honey
  21. ½ cup dry toasted sliced almonds
  22. 2 tablespoons honey Greek yogurt

Directions


  1. Process each of the 4 layers of the bark separately using a clean blender or food processor each time. Place each layer in a separate bowl.

  2. Line a 9 ½”x13″ baking sheet with wax paper. Sprinkle almonds evenly on the baking sheet. Spread the blueberry acai yogurt on top of the almonds. With a teaspoon, place 2-4 tablespoons each of the matcha, turmeric, strawberry, and honey yogurt mixtures on top of the blueberry acai yogurt. You will have a little extra left. Using the back of a wooden skewer, swirl together all the different yogurt mixtures until you get the look of a galaxy far, far away. Sprinkle the top of the bark with extra blueberry powder and whole freeze-dried blueberries. Optional: add yogurt mixture to star ice cube mold to create shapes. Freeze for 2-3 hours.
  3. Break the bark apart and top with more freeze-dried blueberry planets and blueberry galaxy dust.
