For the yogurt layer: 1 cup plain Greek yogurt, 8 oz. cream cheese- at room temperature, 1 tsp. vanilla extract, 2 Tbsp. sugar, 1 cup frozen wild blueberries. Topping: 2 Tbsp. granola.

2. Mix/assemble/freeze: In a bowl, beat the cream cheese, yogurt, vanilla, and 2 Tbsp. of sugar until smooth. Fold in the frozen blueberries. Spoon the berry mixture over the crust, smoothing until even. Sprinkle over extra granola—freeze, covered, for 3 hours. Remove from freezer and let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Store in the freezer.
If your cream cheese is genuinely at room temperature, the mixing will be easy. If not, microwave at half power in increments of 10 seconds a few times until softened.
