Looking for a quick and filling breakfast recipe that’s low on effort and high on fun? This Frozen Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bark is loaded with tasty toppings that can be adapted to whatever you have on hand! Huge thanks to Healthy Foods Online for sponsoring this post.
I thought moving to Europe would make it harder to find all of my precious cooking ingredients. I thought this, so before moving I packed up my tiny kitchen in its entirety. Old spices, chia seeds, half-filled bags of agar agar…I packed it all up and brought it over here and started brainstorming which friends or family would make suitable ingredient mules. As it turns out, I was wrong. Europe is just…different.
In America, we get everything we want, whenever we want it. Strawberries in January? There’s a way. Asparagus in the fall? No problem. But that’s not really the case here. We might not be able to get prime asparagus year round, but when they poke their green heads out of the dirt in the spring, Europe (okay, the Netherlands at least) stops what it’s doing and goes to buy asparagus. They savor it and appreciate it and heaven for bid you let it go bad in your fridge! We learn to appreciate the seasons and the ingredients they produce, and you wonder why you ever needed asparagus in the fall in the first place.
But there are some other things that have been no problem to get, and that’s where online shopping comes in. Today I’ve partnered with Healthy Foods Online, a UK-based online grocery store that has become my solution to finding the odds and ends (i.e. chia seeds, toasted coconut flakes, nutritional yeast, the works) (+ they just opened a Whole Foods-esque grocery in Liverpool, LIV, that you should check out if you’re around!)
Today’s recipe is a real fun one. Essentially spoon some yogurt onto a sheet, cover with whatever yums you have on hand, freeze, and break apart. Boom, breakfast! Now I’m off to go bike around outside because the rare and elusive Dutch sun is shining and one does not simply sit inside for such an event. Have a happy day!
- If desired, mix together yogurt and maple or honey. Spread yogurt onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet so that it's about ¼ to ½ inch (0.6 to 1.2 cm) thick.
- Sprinkle granola, diced fruit, coconut, chocolate chips, and chia seeds onto yogurt, pressing down with a spoon or spatula to ensure all the toppings are touching the yogurt.
- Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for about 4 hours, or until yogurt is hard.
- Break into pieces and serve immediately. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the freezer.
