Cooking With Kids: Spooktacular BOO BARK Breakfast Yogurt
Encouraging Speech & Creating Yum! Spooktacular BOO BARK Breakfast Yogurt
Looking for some healthier option for the popular “Boo Bark” that’s trending on some social media sites? We decided to create a healthy version that’s just as fun. Now, kids can begin their day “SPOOKtacularly” by enjoying some healthy Halloween fun that is not loaded with tons of processed sugar. Our Spooktacular yogurt “bark” is made from Greek yogurt, granola, dried and fresh fruit. It also includes a small amount of mini-chocolate chips and you can create it the night before Halloween is served.
Boo Bark Ingredients
- 3 cups Greek yogurt
- 2-3 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp blueberries (we used dried)
- 2 tbsp cranberries
- 2 tbsp raisins
- 1/2 banana small pieces chopped
- 1/2 Kiwi cut into small pieces
- 1/2 cup of granola
- 2 tbsp mini chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 fresh banana, chopped “googley” eyes
Green Slim Drizzle
- 2 tbsp Honey
- 1 drop green food color
Boo Bark Prep and Directions:
Adult/Child: Measure out yogurt and put in bowl. Mix the yogurt and honey (more if you like it sweeter) together until well combined. Add granola, cranberries, raisins, and blueberries, small pieces of banana and kiwi and stir again.
Child: Line a baking tray with parchment paper and pour the yogurt mixture on top. Spread it depending on how thick or thin you want your bark to be. Mine was approx. V2 inch thick..
Adult/Child: Slice banana from the top into thin slices (see example).
Child: Place banana slices randomly on top of yogurt, then add googly-eyes on tip of banana slices to create ghost. Add extra sets of googlyeyes and place randomly on top of yogurt.
Adult: Measure out and mix honey and 1 drop of green food coloring.
Child: Using a spoon (or fork) drizzle “green honey slim” all over ghost and yogurt. Place in the freezer for 2-4 hours or until it is completely frozen.
Adult: Remove from the freezer and use a sharp knife to break the bark into pieces. The bark can be stored in the freezer container or in freezer food bags. Tip: we put the frozen bark in the microwave for about 15 seconds before serving.
Eat! Talk! Enjoy!
