We can’t stop calling these copycat Dilly Bars! These chocolate covered strawberry frozen yogurt bars are filled with an ultra-creamy Greek yogurt with strawberries and covered in a layer of chocolate that hardens similarly to magic shell. You’ll absolutely love these.

What’s in Protein Frozen Yogurt Bars?

These protein frozen yogurt bars are comprised of two layers: a super creamy greek yogurt filling with sliced fresh strawberries, and then a coating of melted dark chocolate that hardens into a shell in the freezer.

We’re offering an option to add a scoop of vanilla protein powder to the strawberry yogurt filling to amp up the protein even more 😀

Variations & Substitutions

Jazz up the toppings for these protein frozen yogurt bars by adding a sprinkle of coconut shreds, chopped nuts or good old fashioned rainbow sprinkles right after pouring the chocolate topping onto the bars.

Feel free to substitute the sliced strawberries 1:1 for any berry of your choice. Blueberries, raspberries or blackberries would be delicious!

Amp up the protein in these frozen yogurt bars even further by adding a scoop of vanilla protein powder in the strawberry filling.

Top Tips for Protein Frozen Yogurt Bars

  • Use full fat greek yogurt: using full fat greek yogurt will ensure that your frozen yogurt bars are super creamy and not crystalized like some frozen yogurt bars can be.
  • Don’t skimp on the freezing time: make sure the strawberry yogurt layer is fully frozen before adding the melted chocolate.
  • Use parchment paper: parchment paper is your friend! It will ensure that you can easily remove your frozen yogurt bars without them breaking or sticking.

Storage + Freezer Instructions

After your chocolate strawberry frozen yogurt bars are fully frozen, feel free to enjoy immediately! To store for later, place in a freezer-safe bag and return to the freezer for up to 3 months.

Ingredients

Yogurt Clusters

  • 1.5 cups chopped strawberries
  • 1 cup 5% plain Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup honey
  • Optional: 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder

Instructions 

  • Line a baking pan with parchment. Be sure the pan will fit in the freezer. Set aside.

  • Add all of the ingredients for the clusters into a large bowl and stir until well combined.

  • Use a ⅓ cup measuring cup to scoop the mixture onto a lined baking sheet. Space the scoops out so they are not touching.

  • Gently spread each cluster out into a circle and place a popsicle stick into each cluster. Transfer the baking sheet to the freezer for at least 2 hours.

  • With about 15 minutes of freezing time left, prepare the chocolate magic shell. Add the chocolate and coconut oil into a microwave-safe bowl and heat on high for 20-second intervals until glossy and smooth. Stir between each interval.

  • Remove the clusters from the freezer and quickly spoon the melted chocolate ontop of each cluster, completely covering both sides (like a Dilly Bar!) and place them back onto the lined baking sheet. Repeat until each cluster is covered.

  • Return the baking sheet to the freezer for 15 minutes or until the chocolate is hardened.

  • When the chocolate is frozen enjoy it immediately or store the clusters in freezer-safe bags.

Tips & Notes

  • You can use any berry in place of the strawberries.
  • Feel free to make the clusters smaller using a ¼ cup scoop.
  • We found that the higher fat content of Greek yogurt is what prevents the bars from becoming icy. This is why we recommend 5% or full-fat!
