White Chocolate Matcha Yogurt Bark

Apr 11, 2024

Whether you’re a devoted matcha enthusiast or simply looking for a wholesome treat, this White Chocolate Matcha Yogurt Bark is the answer to your snack cravings. Matcha’s distinctive flavor paired with creamy white chocolate and tart yogurt creates a unique treat that only takes a few minutes to prepare. To take this yogurt bark to the next level, we used NuTrail granola for a helping of nutritious nuts and seeds plus a crunch that perfectly contrasts the creamy recipe base. 


Aside from its earthy taste, matcha is high in antioxidants and has a gentle burst of caffeine to give your day a boost. You’ll love how quickly this snack comes together and that you can customize it with your favorite granola, fruit, and even yogurt so snack time will never be boring.  


What is matcha powder?  


Matcha is a finely ground green tea powder. Its bold flavor not only makes delicious lattes but is also used in various recipes to add a sweet earthy taste and vibrant green hue. Matcha powder can be found near the alternative flours and thickening agents in the baking aisle.  



Why you’ll love it 


Quick prep: The longest part of this recipe is the freezing process. The hands-on prep takes just a few minutes. If you have time after lunch or before bed, you can easily put together a tray for a wholesome snack the next day.  


Customizable: This dish can be adapted to whatever you have on hand. Get creative and add your favorite nuts and chopped fruit. This recipe will work with your favorite type of yogurt, even if it’s not Greek yogurt.  


Nutritious: Yogurt is a protein-rich food. With 16g protein per 3/4 cup, it’s a satisfying snack that won’t leave you continually wanting more. Paired with our granola’s healthy fats and fiber, this powerhouse treat is one you can feel great about.  





NuTrail Granola: Our flavorful granola makes the ideal crunchy topping for this creamy smooth treat. Switch it up each time you make it and try out different flavor combinations.  


Plain Greek yogurt: Plain Greek yogurt is the base for this recipe. Feel free to use a flavored yogurt or non-Greek yogurt as well.  


Matcha powder: Matcha powder is mixed with white chocolate and swirled into the yogurt. It adds a beautiful pop of color and a rich flavor that balances the white chocolate's sweetness. 


Sugar-Free White Chocolate: Low-carb white chocolate provides a sweet and mild taste that takes this yogurt bark to the next level. Be sure that the dish you’re melting the chocolate in is completely dry otherwise, the water can cause it to seize-up after heating. 


Berries: Fresh berries are sprinkled across the yogurt bark. They provide a fresh, juicy bite and complement the earthy matcha flavors. For this recipe, we’re using raspberries but you can use strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, or a mix. 


Coconut oil: Coconut oil helps the white chocolate become smooth once melted. 


How to avoid icy yogurt bark 


When frozen, yogurts that contain a lot of water tend to form ice crystals. To avoid this, choose a thick yogurt that is made with whole milk. These tend to have less water than non-fat yogurts and therefore form less ice. Not all non-fat yogurts will become overly icy, however. Try out a few different brands and see which one fits your preferences the best.  


It’s also important to distinguish whey from water. If your yogurt has liquid accumulating at the top, it’s not water. It’s simply whey that has separated and can be stirred back into the yogurt. This will not make your yogurt bark icy.  



Variations and Substitutions 


Swap the yogurt: Coconut yogurt and dairy-free yogurts will work in this recipe too. They can add a dynamic flavor and complement the nutty taste of the granola.  


Skip the matcha: If you’re not a matcha fan, you can still enjoy this recipe. Swirl in your favorite flavors such as peanut butter or melted sugar-free milk chocolate instead. Try adding a few spoonfuls of jam, honey, or even using two flavors of yogurt. 


Get creative with the toppings: Try out a different flavor of Nutrail granola. Try out our Cacao Nut for an extra chocolate taste or Cinnamon Pecan for a warm spiced flavor. Add extra chopped nuts or a spoonful of sprinkles. The options are endless and that’s one of the things that make this snack so much fun. 


Matcha Yogurt Bark Tips 


Don’t make it too thin: Avoid spreading the yogurt overly thin and feel free to add a few spoonfuls of yogurt to any areas as needed. It should be at least 1/4-inch thick.  

Always use parchment or foil: Don’t make the bark directly onto a pan because it will be difficult to pick up and break into pieces.  


Let it warm at room temperature for 3-5 minutes before eating. It will taste extra creamy and be easier to bite into.   


Only take out a serving at a time: The yogurt will melt back to its regular form quickly so only remove from the freezer what you plan on eating right away.
