Healthy Yoghurt White Christmas


,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, dark chocolate chip and banana, or swirled raspberry jam with frozen berries through the yogurt are beautiful options to try. Clearly, the possibilities are endlessly delicious.

    i loved this, but found it hard to get it in the sweet spot of not being rock solid frozen and not being a pile of goo. Hooray for a scorching Christmas day 🤦‍♀️ It didn’t get eaten so its been living in my freezer, although I did eat nearly half of what’s left yesterday and it was soooo yum. Not sure I’d make it again because it was so hard to serve, but looks and tastes nice
