“A quick and mildly healthy snack to cure your sweet tooth, get your daily dose of fruit, and put some probiotics in your system! Thrown together as a quickie snack while the bf and I were playing video games last night. <3”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 -4 graham crackers (cinnamon, chocolate, or regular. Regular is best)
  • 12-1 cup yogurt (I used vanilla flavored)
  • fresh fruit (as much as you'd like to add. I used about 7 raspberries, 4 quartered strawberries, and 4 blackberri)
  • Optional
  • whipped cream, 1 dollop
  • 1 maraschino cherry (to garnish)


  1. Have a dish ready, as you're going to be setting this up in layers.
  2. Lightly break apart one graham cracker. You can crush it up fine if you'd prefer it to seem more like crust, but broken into smallish pieces is sufficient. Put this in the bottom of your dish.
  3. Throw a few heavy dollops of yogurt (about 1/3 of your full amount) onto this, spreading it to cover the "crust".
  4. Toss in some of your berries of choice, saving half for the end. Arrange them however you'd like.
  5. Add another layer of graham cracker and half of what's left of the yogurt, topping it off with the rest of your berries, the remainder of yogurt and another crumbled up graham cracker.
  6. If you want to finish with a fancy flourish, feel free to add a spot of whipped cream and a maraschino cherry for some extra sweetness.
  7. Dig in with spoons and enjoy!
