Fruit Smootie No-bake Cheesecake

This is SO SO yummy. I haven't made it before, but the girl who did says it is super easy. (It is a Kraft Food recipe so it's almost a given that it is easy and delicious!)

1-1/2 cups Graham Cracker Crumbs
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
2 Tbsp. sugar
4 pkg. (8 oz. each) Neufchatel Cheese, softened
(Neufchatel cheese is like cream cheese, it just has a 1/3 the fat. I just use cream cheese....)
1/2 cup sugar
1 pkg. (12 oz.) frozen mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries), thawed, drained
1 tub (8 oz.) cool whip, thawed, divided

LINE 13x9-inch baking pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan. Mix graham crumbs, butter and 2 Tbsp. sugar; press firmly onto bottom of prepared pan. Refrigerate while preparing filling.
BEAT Neufchatel cheese and 1/2 cup sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Smash drained berries with fork; stir into cheese mixture. Gently stir in 2 cups of the whipped topping. Spoon over crust; cover.
REFRIGERATE 4 hours or until firm. Use foil handles to remove cheesecake from pan before cutting into pieces to serve. Top with the remaining whipped topping. Store any leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.
