This cake is almost too easy — even the crust is no-bake! The filling is a combination of Greek yogurt, cream cheese, whipped cream, and sugar, while the crust is made of graham crackers, melted butter, sugar, and salt. Make it a few days before your party and store it in the fridge until guests arrive. Top with red and blue sliced berries and you’re done!
