Papaya Frozen Yoghurt Bark Recipe

Looking for a quick and easy (and healthy) treat? Put the icy poles away because this papaya frozen yoghurt bark is the perfect after-school treat.

Serves 8
Prep Time: 8 minutes
Freezer Time: 4 hours

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups Greek or natural yoghurt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla paste or extract
  • 1 – 2 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • 300 g peeled papaya
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries (130 g)
  • 1/4 cup chopped pistachios (35 g)

METHOD

  1. Line an oven tray with baking paper.
  2. Dice the papaya – chop half finely (1cm pieces) and the other half roughly (2-3cm pieces), you should have about 2 cups total.
  3. Combine yoghurt and vanilla in a bowl. Add syrup or honey to taste, then stir through half the finely chopped papaya.
  4. Spread papaya yoghurt mixture over the prepared pan in an even layer. Top with raspberries, pistachios and remaining papaya.
  5. Freeze 2 – 4 hours until firm. Cut or break frozen papaya yoghurt bark into bite-sized pieces and serve immediately, or store in a freezer bag for a quick treat.

TIPS

  • You could replace the natural yoghurt with an equal quantity of your favourite vanilla yoghurt and leave out the syrup and extract, or substitute with coconut yoghurt for a dairy-free treat.
  • For a thicker yoghurt bark use a smaller pan.
