We're very into snacking around here, so I try really hard to come up with healthy, homemade snacks that seem like oodles of guilty fun.

Gv loves munching on random frozen things (like peas, corn, and fruit - she's a little weird sometimes) straight out of the bag and she also likes yogurt, so it just made sense to combine these two categories into a new frozen "dessert" snack for her one day.

And this is a dessert snack with zero sugar (well, if you don't count the natural fruit sugar, of course).

It's also so easy to make, it's ridiculous.

I'm not terribly fond of this bark myself - because I don't care for cold things, but for the girl who wants her pasta, pizza, rice - basically anything that goes into her mouth - cold, it's a win.

What You Need

1 32-ounce container of yogurt (see how to make your own here)

1 10-ounce bag of frozen fruit (or a cup of any fruit, but it chops up easier if it's frozen)

1 Tablespoon vanilla (this is our secret weapon to making something seem sweet, without using sugar!)

This recipe really couldn't be simpler!

What You Do

1.  Pulse your fruit  in something like this until it's nice and pulverized.

2.  Dump everything into a bowl and get it all mixed up really well.

3.  Spread the mixture out onto a baking mat-lined cookie sheet until it's nice and even.

You could easily use larger chunks of fruit, but by making them small like this, I don't have to worry about Gv choking.  Plus, I'm lazy, and it's far easier to just dump it all in a machine to grind, rather than hand-chop it myself!

4.  Stick the tray in the freezer for a few hours.
