Take fresh strawberries and cream to the next level with this no-bake, one-pan Strawberry Icebox Cake. Fluffy whipped cream, juicy strawberries, and graham crackers are all you need to make this potluck favorite!
Why this recipe works
I don’t even know where to begin with how amazingly delicious and easy this Strawberry Icebox Cake is! Strawberries, whipped cream, and graham crackers – that’s all you need to make this no-bake wonder.
The ingredients are layered together and allowed to set in the refrigerator. The graham crackers soak up some of the sweetened cream and become soft like cake. Mushy cookies may sound weird, but trust me it works! It’s sweet, light and fresh without being too sugary.
This would be delicious with any of your favorite berries (raspberries then blueberries are next on my list of favorites). Or even with Oreos! (check out our Oreo Icebox Cake!) My favorite no-bake dessert is Oreo Cake, but when strawberries are in season, I go crazy for them.
3-4 cups strawberries sliced
12-15 Whole Graham Crackers
1 1/2 pints heavy whipping cream
4-5 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
Step1: Using mixer – Mix whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla on medium to high speed until stiff peaks form (I keep going until it is thicker but stop mixing before it is “butter”)
Step2: Always best to make sure the heavy cream, mixing bowl, and beaters are super cold. Just put bowl and beaters in the fridge for a while before mixing.
Step3: Line 8 X 8 pan with whole graham crackers (You can break some more to fill in any gaps around the edge)
Step4: Spread whipped cream on the graham crackers
Step5: Top that layer with sliced strawberries
Step6: Repeat this 2 times
Step7: Top with remaining strawberries Put a few whole berries in the middle to make it prettier
Step8: Chill in the fridge approx. 3 hours. Bring it out and say goodbye to it because it will be gone and it will become a memory…until next time.
