Strawberry Lime Yogurt Bark is the perfect snack to cool you off on a hot summer’s day. It’s sweet, tangy, and so refreshing!
This year I’ve been trying to eat snacks and desserts that are lower in added sugar. Things like juicy baked pears, apple nachos for two, toaster oven pita chips, and these addictive rosemary cashews.
My newest addition to that healthy-ish list: A cool and creamy Strawberry Lime Yogurt Bark Recipe. With frozen Greek yogurt and a refreshing key-lime-pie-style flavor, it’s the perfect high-protein hot weather treat.
Since our household is small (it’s just the two of us + Benji), I make our yogurt bark in smaller batches. The bark freezes faster and doesn’t create a ton of leftovers. Which means you can try different flavor combos more often!
If you’ve got lots of hungry bellies in your house, you can always use a larger baking sheet and double or triple the recipe.
- Plain Greek Yogurt. We liked the low-fat or full-fat varieties. The batches we made with fat-free yogurt were way too icy.
- Sweetener and Flavorings. For this recipe, I used a little maple syrup, vanilla extract, and a fresh lime (zest + juice). Just a tiny bit of maple syrup or honey keeps the bark from being too tart.
- Fresh or Frozen Fruit. Fresh juicy strawberries are delicious when in season. In the winter months, you can substitute frozen raspberries or blueberries.
- A Graham Cracker. The crumbled graham cracker gives the bark the most delicious pie-vibe. If graham crackers aren’t your thing, try it with a few tablespoons of your favorite toaster oven granola recipe.

Step By Step Photos and Tips
Start by lining a rimmed quarter sheet pan with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. This keeps the yogurt from sticking to the pan.
Next, whisk together the yogurt, lime zest and juice, maple syrup, and a splash of vanilla extract. I like to add half of the crushed graham crackers to the yogurt, the pieces soften slightly and remind me of graham cracker pie crust.
Now, spread the yogurt into an even thin layer on the lined pan. Sprinkle the remaining crumbled graham cracker over the yogurt and top with strawberry slices.
All that’s left is to freeze the yogurt. It will take about 2 hours for the bark to freeze completely. Then comes the fun part…breaking it into pieces for nibbling on!
Transfer the bark to a plastic bag or container and store in the freezer for an easy summertime snack or dessert.
