Galaxy Shrikhand Bark

Galaxy Shrikhand Bark | Saffron and cardamom yogurt bark that’s out of this world 😉 Shrikhand is one of my favorite desserts, creamy strained yogurt flavored with saffron, cardamom, and nuts. I wanted to put a fun twist on it for little ones!

This Galaxy Shrikhand Bark has all the flavors of traditional Shrikhand and you can make it a family activity. It’s simple enough that little ones can help with most of the decorating, especially swirling the colors together and sprinkling on the stars. You can find the dyes and embellishments here.

Galaxy Shrikhand Bark Ingredients:

Strained yogurt: You can either strain plain unflavored yogurt or use Greek yogurt. 

Powdered sugar: Store-bought powdered sugar contained corn starch which I feel alters the taste a bit. I make my own but putting regular sugar in a food processor and grinding it until it’s a powder. 

Cardamom powder: I like to use a mix of fine powder and some coarsely crushed seeds. 

Nuts: You can use  almonds, cashews and/or pistachios. I used pistachios and almonds. If you’re making for this someone with a nut allergy, you can omit them altogether.

Saffron: I bloom this in warm milk, extracting the maximum flavor and color. 

Embellishments: Make this as simple or fancy as you want. Use food dye, edible glitter, stars, pearls and more to give that galaxy glow.

Galaxy Shrikhand Bark | Creamy saffron and cardamom Shrikhand reimagined in a bark that’s out of this world.
Serves: 10-12 pieces
  • 1 ½ cups Greek yogurt (I used Chobani whole milk yogurt)
  • ½ cup powdered sugar (table sugar that’s been powdered)
  • 4-5 saffron strands
  • 2 teaspoons milk; warmed 
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom powder; coarsely crushed
  • 1 tablespoon almonds; chopped
  • 1 tablespoon pistachios; chopped
  • food coloring; I used pink, blue and purple
  • edible glitter
  • gold star sprinkles
  1. Add the saffron to the warm milk, store and allow it to bloom.
  2. In a bowl add greek yogurt, powdered sugar, and saffron milk. Fold and mix. Do not stir or mix vigorously else shrikhand will get a runny.
  3. Fold in cardamom powder and nuts.
  4. Separate the Shrikhand into 4 small bowls. Add a little of the pink, purple, blue coloring to each bowl, leaving 1 white, and stir to combine. I added 2-4 drops as the colors will deepen with time.
  5. Line a 9x13 baking tray with parchment paper and place a dollop of each color of yogurt, along with the white, side by side. Use a butter knife or the back of a spoon to swirl the colors together.
  6. Add a few dusts of edible glitter and gold star sprinkles scattered throughout.
  7. Cover with plastic wrap, and transfer to the freezer to set for 4-6 hours.
  8. When you‘re  ready to serve the Shrikhand bark, lift it out of the baking dish using the parchment paper, cut it into pieces, and enjoy.
  9. The Shrikhand bark will soften fairly quickly, so transfer any uneaten pieces back to the freezer to store.

  1. I tried to make this today and used Milton coloring and it just would not color. The color would stay super light even after adding more and more drops. 🙁 what coloring did you use?
    The whole thing ended up being super light green.
