Quick go to snacks are a must for most of us, especially when you have a family to feed. I know I’m not the only one that’s been given the look of death when you once again present your hungry brood with the same old snack. If looks could kill…I would not be here today. And let’s be thankful they can’t, because this is something you’re going to want! May I present you with the answer to mundane snack time: Vegan Chunky Monkey Frozen Yogurt Bark! Easy, check. Tasty, check. Happy family, check. My work is done here.
So how do you throw together something this fabulous? Well, it starts with a few containers of Dream Non-Dairy Yogurt! I used the coconut version for this, I found that it froze a little better and gave it that thick creamy taste. Blend it up with some ripe banana for natural sweetness, throw in some walnuts, crunchy cacao nibs and sliced bananas (maybe vegan chocolate chips if you’re feeling really fancy) and you’ve got yourself a vegan frozen yogurt bark that you will not be able to keep around.
It’s amazing how easy it is to use a simple container of Dream Non-Dairy Yogurt and transform it into a fun and tasty snack. I mean, one minute you’re eating yogurt, the next you can use that same yogurt for something that looks like it took effort to put together! In reality you literally throw the ingredients on and let the freezer do the rest. Winner winner, yogurt snack for dinner! And it’s super healthy, so if you wanted you really could eat it for dinner. And who wouldn’t want frozen yogurt bark for dinner?!
So grab yourself some Dream Non-Dairy Yogurt, whip this bark up and wow your friends and family. It’s fail proof and tasty. Move over Pinterest fails, because this will be a success!

- • 2 containers vanilla Dream Non-Dairy Coconut Yogurt (6 ounces each, about 1 ½ cups total)
- • 1 medium ripe banana (about ¾ cup mashed)
- • ½ medium banana, sliced into ⅛ inch pieces
- • 4 tablespoons chopped walnuts
- • 2 tablespoons cacao nibs
- • 2 tablespoons soft peanut butter
- • 2 tablespoons vegan chocolate chips (optional for sweeter flavor)
- Add yogurt and ripe banana to a food processor and blend until smooth.
- Spread mixture on a parchment lined cookie sheet until about ¼ inch thick.
- Drop sliced bananas, chopped walnuts, cacao nibs and chocolate chips if using into the yogurt.
- Put peanut butter into a plastic bag and cut the corner off. Squeeze bag to drizzle peanut butter all over yogurt.

Baby/toddler food idea: Add only banana until child is old enough to eat hard foods.
