Yogurt Bark Serving Suggestions
Want to increase the protein in your family’s diet? Swap out the yogurt in this recipe for a Greek yogurt variety. On average, a single serving of Greek yogurt has about 17 grams of protein! Be careful, though! Many options often have significant amounts of added sugar and mystery ingredients. To avoid this, be sure to read the ingredient list and try to opt for choices with minimal ingredients.
