It's Holi this weekend, and I want to celebrate it with some bright and colorful Holi inspired food!
What Is Holi?
Holi is a Hindu festival celebrated around India to welcome the arrival of spring, the end of winter, and good over evil. Brilliant, bright colored powders each symbolizing something different, are smeared onto one another in a huge buzzing festival that is free for all.
With the colors of Holi in mind, this recipe is for a wonderfully vibrant galaxy frozen yogurt bark with lots of fruit toppings. Yogurt barks are a great healthy snack, and can be a yummy guilt-free, no-bake dessert as well! Frozen yogurt barks are made from greek yogurt, a sweetener, and toppings. You can flavor your yogurt however you like and change the toppings, too - my favorite part about it, making it different each time.
As it is Holi, I colored my yogurt using blue spirulina powder and pink pitaya powder to get the galaxy effect. I LOVE using natural food coloring to brighten my dishes, especially when it comes to desserts. With it being Holi, it just made sense!
To make this galaxy like yogurt bark, mix all of the yogurt with honey then divide into three separate plates. Mix the natural food coloring into each (I left one plain), then place the different colored yogurts onto a baking paper lined flat dish in blobs. To bleed the different colors, smooth the yogurt over with the back of a spoon. For toppings, sprinkle blueberries, raspberries, cacao nibs for some crunch, hemp seeds, rose petals, sea salt and a little extra honey, or whatever else you like! Nuts, seeds, and fruits all work great. You can even add a drizzle of melted chocolate or nut butter.
