Greek yogurt fruit bark
I searched high and low for the best seasonal fruit at the Farmers Market on the Capitol in Lansing for this recipe, like cantaloupe, raspberries, blueberries and nectarines. You’d be surprised at what great fruit pickings are available so late in the summer in Michigan. Peaches are in season starting in June, however they are in abundance during the months of July and August. Likewise, blueberries and cantaloupe are in season from July to late August and even into early September. There is a lot of freedom in this recipe to combine different fruit and topping combinations, which makes this fun for the family to make together.
Plain Greek yogurt is high in protein and low in sugar, which helps balance out the sweetness from the fruit and dark chocolate chips. Fruit bark can serve as a unique breakfast or a quick, flavorful snack. If you have a sweet tooth and don’t want to break your diet, then this recipe is perfect for you. Depending on what’s in season you can switch up the fruit combinations and try making your own recipe!
Quick tips to determine the ripeness of fruit:
  • Knock on a cantaloupe. If it sounds hollow, then it is ripe.
  • Smell a peach. If it smells sweet and fruit-like, then it’s ready to eat! You can also lightly squeeze the peach, it should be medium-soft, not too firm and not too squishy.
