Don't have all the ingredients? Don't worry! Scroll down for other ideas!
Let's get started!
The first step is to dice your berries into small pieces. Put them into a medium bowl and mash about half the berries with a fork or potato masher to release some of the juices.
Next add in the yogurt and stir just until combined.
Once that is done, take your graham crackers and break them in half. Then add a spoonful of the yogurt mixture onto 12 of the graham cracker pieces. We laid ours out on a sheet pan to make sure each cracker got about the same amount. Then top each one with the remaining graham crackers.
Lastly, wrap each of your treats in wax paper, plastic wrap, or a sandwich bag and put on a flat surface in the freezer for 2-4 hours.
After you've waited for what feels like forever, take out your treat and enjoy!

Here's another version, but using bananas and pudding instead of berries and yogurt! Delicious!!
