These berry frozen yogurt bars could be easier to make. With a chocolate graham cracker outside which softens when filled with the berry frozen yogurt filling.

Berry Frozen Yogurt Bars

Welcome to #IceCreamWeek! Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen of Juanita’s Cocina have teamed up with more than 20 of their blog friends to bring you a week full of ice cream treats, including a special ice cream giveaway! Prepare to have your taste buds tempted with some of the best ice cream treats around! Make sure you enter the giveaway for a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and two fabulous ice cream cookbooks so that you can join in on the ice cream fun!

Ice cream week is in full swing! In order to combat all the extra ice cream in my presence I have been drinking a lot more green monster smoothies for breakfast. Unfortunately the other morning I managed to knock my smoothie off the counter and it didn’t just spill onto the floor, it exploded and splattered all over my kitchen and into my dining room. Who knew smoothie cold fly so far? As a result I not only lost my breakfast but also had to fully clean my kitchen floor and surrounding walls/areas. I am still finding little flecks of green in places though.

But I digress. I thought I’d take a little break and share a slightly healthier ice cream treat for today’s post since I resorted to a less-healthy breakfast option after the smoothie incident (hello peanut butter poptarts). These bars are a fruity version of a traditional ice cream sandwich, but instead the cookie is a chocolate graham cracker and the filling is a berry frozen yogurt. It’s like chocolate covered fruit! Kinda…

One year ago: Pineapple Muffins with Coconut Streusel

Two yeas ago: Gnocchi with Goat Cheese, Grape Tomatoes and Basil


Makes 9 bars


9 whole chocolate graham crackers, broken into 18 squares

1/2 cup frozen mixed berries, pureed

1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt (I used 0% Chobani)

1-1/2 cups thawed frozen reduced fat whipped topping

1 tsp vanilla extract


      1. Line an 8-inch* square pan with wax paper, with ends extending over the sides. Arrange half the graham crackers (nine) on the bottom of the pan.
      2. In a medium bowl, stir together the pureed berries, yogurt, whipped topping and vanilla. Spread over graham crackers. Top with remaining graham crackers, aligning to match the placement of the crackers on the bottom layer.
      3. Freezer for 4 hours. Use the overhanging wax paper to remove from pan. Cut between crackers to form 9 square bars. Allow to thaw for just a couple minutes before serving. Store any leftovers wrapped in freezer.

*My graham crackers fit in an 8-inch square pan, but if yours are slightly bigger you may need to use a 9-inch pan. Check by simply placing crackers in the bottom.

You’re a genius to make these with chocolate grahams! I love it. And yeah, it’s TOTALLY just like chocolate-covered fruit…obviously. Practically a health food! :)

I had a smoothie disaster once before work. It was a mess and had no breakfast. The worst way to start the day. If I had all of your ice cream treats though I would just have called it quits and had one of these bars.

Ugh, there is almost nothing worse than having to clean flying food off of the walls of your house! And especially when it’s green :P These would definitely make me feel better – I love a homemade ice cream sandwich!

These are so pretty. I think I need to try this as soon as possible. I love berry desserts. Thanks for joining us.

I love how easy this makes it to make ice cream sandwiches!

Erin, it did my heart good to read about your smoothie explosion (forgive me, please?) That’s the kind of thing my husband is really good at. Hopefully, unlike me, you won’t be finding the evidence months later…

These bars look very good.

That sounds great! I love berries on my frozen yogurt (and my regular yogurt) so I’m sure I would love these!

Oh my my. I’ve got to start making more ice cream before the sun goes away! This looks ridiculously good!

I love the purple color of your yogurt bars. My daughter will go crazy over these.

Liz August 16, 2013 - 1:10 pm

These look fantastic, Erin! And so simple to put together…double bonus!

I like the idea of using a graham cracker for an ice cream bar. Your berry yogurt sounds great inside!
