If you caught my post last week on my Alpro Breakfast Smoothie Bowl you will of see a little mention at the end about a delicious but good for you treat… Easy to make, store and you can eat a little or a lot in one go. It is also really easy to switch up ingredients and adapt for kids too so its divers and delectable. Who would of thought though two foodie posts and the same month? Not me but I really enjoyed the bundle of goodies Alpro kindly sent to me to try and I love the ease of making something healthy that doesn’t take an age or taste bland especially for someone like me who has a real sweet tooth.
Alpro Raspberry, Chocolate & Chia Yogurt Bark
As I said this recipe is really easy to make and will take less than 5 mins to prepare you will then need to freeze for up a minimum of 2 hours before it’s ready bar needing a baking tray lined with cling film you will need:
Alpro Plain Yogurt
Dark Chocolate [I picked Ghiradelli’s]
A baking tray
After lining my tray with cling film, I made sure the whole of it was covered with a mid thickness layer of the plain Alpro yogurt. I then chopped up around 12-15 raspberries into halves and placed in the yogurt, after that I chopped up 3 squares of the individual wrapped Ghiradelli dark chocolate sprinkled over making sure evenly covered and then did the same this time with a handful of chia seeds. I then placed the tray in the freezer over night to set although as i mentioned 2 hours is the minimum time this needs. I took it out of the fridge the next morning and peeled away the cling film and placed on a chopping board where I broke of a mixed bag of chunks, some small some large placing them into a large zip lock bag, you can then take out what you want to eat when you want it.
I love dark chocolate and raspberry anyway but the added goodness of chia seeds is what give this its healthy edge, they are high in protein, loaded with antioxidants and high in fibre. I wanted to make something that I could snack on after the gym and feel like I am eating something a little bad for me but without the guilt which is what this bark is. It lasts in the freezer for up to one month so its great just to garb after the workout without having to go to any effort. The taste is sweet yet sharp which I love, though if you wanted to add a little more sweetens a drizzle of honey into the mix before freezing would be lovely too.
Have you made yogurt bark before? What would your perfect combo be?
