5. Cereal Yogurt Bark

If you've ever tried yogurt bark, then chances are you're hooked. It's the perfect way to eat yogurt on-the-go, and it's so tasty it seems like a treat rather than a healthy snack. This mashup recipe suggests you add your fave cereal like Fruit Loops (or you can opt for a more nutritious cereal) to some Greek yogurt. Freeze for a few hours and munch away!
