Sometimes I find a recipe and wonder why I never ran across it before…and this No Bake Strawberry Ice Box Cake is definitely one of those recipes. I must be living under a rock because this is one of the easiest and tastiest recipes I’ve ever made. It tastes incredibly fresh and the best thing is that it lasts in the refrigerator for several days…that is if you can manage not to eat it all at once!
It’s assembled in layers and they go together so quickly. Once you get your strawberries cleaned and sliced it takes literally a few minutes. Here’s what to do!
Technically you are supposed to make the layers three times. The first time I made this (when these pictures were taken) I got a little heavy-handed and made the Cool Whip layers too thick. I was only able to get two layers…but honestly it was so good that I don’t think it even matters.
If you don’t like the idea of using Cool Whip, you could use real whipping cream. I don’t think it would last as long in the refrigerator. If you were making and eating the same day then I think it would be delish.
This could easily be made in a 9 x 13 pan if you were feeding a crowd. Just get more strawberries and Cool Whip. You will have plenty of graham crackers if you have a full box.
