Not only do berries taste great, they are also great for us. Strawberries are high in folic acid, while blackberries are 1/3 of our daily recommended fiber in just one cup. Berries are also packed with antioxidants that protect our cells from damage. Whether we are adding them to a dish, eating them whole, or making them the star of our meal, you can't go wrong with incorporating berries into your diet.
1. Line a 10 x 15 x 1-inch cookie sheet with parchment paper. Spread the yogurt on top of the paper. Place strawberries and blackberries on the yogurt.
2. Drizzle with the strawberry and blackberry jellies. Tap on the counter slightly to help the fruit settle in the yogurt. Freeze for 4 hours. Take the bark out and cut or break into pieces.
3. Store this treat in a zip-close bag in the freezer. Pull it out to enjoy a healthy, frosty snack. You may want to let it thaw 5-10 minutes before eating.
Jam may be substituted for jelly.
Try new combinations of fruit and jelly.
Try reduced fat Greek yogurt for less calories.
