Yoghurt Fruit Bark ~ Foodie Friday ~

Welcome to another Foodie Friday!

Yoghurt Fruit Bark-

Fresh fruit 1/2 cup
Vanilla Yoghurt 1 cup

1. Smooth yoghurt onto either a lined baking tray, or, as I used, a plastic plate that you don’t mind breaking. I used vanilla yoghurt, but you could try it with whatever kind of yoghurt you like.

2. Press your fruits gently into the yoghurt. Try to space them out a little, for this step you can use whichever kinds of fruits you prefer, and could even try dried fruits, but I used fresh blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries.

3.Cover the plate or tray you are using with glad wrap, so that it’s not compromised by other smells and tastes.

4.Place your plate or tray into the freezer. I recommend freezing overnight.

5.Remove your plate or tray from the freezer, and snap the now frozen yogurt into pieces, the pieces can be as big or small as you want them to be.

6.Enjoy your healthy fruit bark!

Hopefully you enjoyed this recipe, and maybe it served as a healthy alternative at Easter, or some other time!

Healthy Smoothie ~ Foodie Friday~

Hello and welcome to the first Foodie Friday!

Healthy Berry and Yoghurt Smoothie-

Mixed berries 1/2 cup
Yoghurt 2 Tblsp
Milk 1/2 cup
Banana 1/2


  1. Put all of your ingredients into a blender. You can use whatever types of berries you would prefer, and frozen or unfrozen depending on what’s available to you. I used frozen blueberries and strawberries.
  2. (optional) I use my morning smoothie as a means of quickly and easily taking all the vitamins I need to take for the day. If this is something you’d like to try, check with your doctor or pharmacist that they are all okay to be taken together, and blended. Then just crush them up, and add them in with the rest of your ingredients. I find this a great way of taking everything I need without them tasting bad, or taking too long.
  3. Blend well. Be aware that, depending which ingredients you included, your smoothie might be a different colour or consistency than mine,
  4.  Drink up and enjoy!


Keep Smiling!
