Vegan Frozen Yogurt Bark Nutrition

This vegan frozen yogurt bark is not only tasty—but also super nutritious. Let’s break down the nutritional value of each of the ingredients we added to this recipe:

  • Plain vegan yogurt is a rich source of plant-based protein; this is essential for muscle growth. The probiotics in vegan yogurt help restore the natural bacteria in your gut—thus helping with digestion. Additionally, vitamins B12, calcium, and vitamin D, as found in yogurt, are essential for your bone health.
  • The natural sweeteners (such as agave or maple syrup) make this vegan yogurt bark recipe low in calories—as compared to adding refined sugar. They also have antioxidants beneficial for health.
  • Strawberries are super rich in vitamin C, which supports immune function. Plus, they have plenty of fiber (which means you’ll feel full for longer periods, aiding weight loss).
  • Blueberries are packed with antioxidants (these help reduce oxidative stress). Studies show that a handful of berries every day can also improve brain function.
  • Raspberries are high in fiber, so they can support digestive health, and are rich in vitamins C and K.
  • Pumpkin seeds are an excellent source of (plant-based) protein and healthy fats. They are high in magnesium, so can promote your heart health. They also contain zinc, making them a great addition for a healthy immune system.
  • Almonds are a great source of vitamin E and magnesium as well as healthy fats. They can control your blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels.
  • Chia seeds have omega-3 fatty acids as well as fiber and protein.

Substitutions and Topping Ideas

The best part about this vegan yogurt bark recipe is that it can be customized as you wish. Here are a few common alternatives:

  • Alternative to soy-based yogurt: Coconut, almond, or cashew yogurt
  • Alternative sweeteners: Date syrup, coconut nectar
  • Alternative fruits: Mango, pineapple, kiwi
  • Alternative nuts: Walnuts, pistachios, hazelnuts
  • Alternative seeds: Flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds

The same customization can be  applied for toppings. Consider dried fruits (e.g., dried cranberries and apricots) and additional fresh fruits, such as bananas and peach slices. Nut butter can also be drizzled on top, including almond butter and peanut butter. For a decadent touch, consider a drizzle of dark chocolate.

This vegan yogurt bark is so yummy – it will have you craving for more! It is largely a summer treat, but we love our vegan frozen yogurt bark as dessert year-round.
