Peppermint Bark is a classic holiday treat and this affordable recipe gives you all those flavors mixed into a delicious yogurt dip.
The base of this recipe is vanilla yogurt, so it’s packed with protein, essential vitamins and minerals, and probiotics. (Anyone else love a treat that’ll keep your belly happy and full?!)
You can make this dip ahead of time for a party or potluck.
It also works as a delicious and festive snack!
Make it during your usual meal prep day and portion out servings to enjoy at school or work. Serve it up with fruit for a protein and fiber packed snack that tastes like dessert and keeps you full.
This creamy yogurt dip is based on the holiday favorite – peppermint bark candy.
But this healthier version is packed with essential vitamins and minerals from the yogurt and will help keep you satiated longer.
Peppermint Bark Dip Recipe with Yogurt
- 2 cups vanilla Real California yogurt
- 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
- 1 crushed candy cane (for top)
Mix yogurt, peppermint extract and chocolate chips.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Top with crushed candy cane and serve along with your favorite dippers.
Healthy Yogurt Dip Options
I served this dip up with fruit and more indulgent gingerbread cookies, gingerbread wafers and cookie straws. The red and white candy on top of vanilla yogurt make for a pretty centerpiece too.
It’s a crowd favorite – and no one will know the dip is made with yogurt!
You can make it healthier by serving with fruit or lighter dipping options. This way it’s packed with extra vitamins and minerals and works as an appetizer or snack you can feel great about enjoying or serving.
Lighter Dipper Ideas:
- Apple slices
- Pear slices
- Or try your favorite seasonal fruit!
