Strawberry Icebox Cake
This dessert looks amazing and tastes just as good! It’s my go to dessert when I need something fast. It’s simple and easy with only 3 ingredients!
It does not get any simpler than this! You are going to love how amazing it tastes. Despite how easy it is, it tastes like you spent a ton of time on this creamy dessert.
The strawberries and whipped topping blend to make decadent layers between the graham crackers. This easy dessert reminds me of strawberry shortcake.
No bake strawberry icebox cake is even better made in advance!
I like to refrigerate this dessert for at least 4 hours before serving. It gives the flavors time to blend and the graham crackers time to soften. Yum!
It’s even better if you make it the day before. You can make it and put in the fridge the day before you want to eat it. Simply take out when you are ready to serve.
No bake desserts are the best! Don’t let this simple cake fool you! It tastes amazing.
It’s great at potlucks, BBQ’s, parties and more! It’s also very inexpensive to make! We also love Sugar Cookie Fruit Pizza Recipe for another easy recipe idea!
Make sure you have a good pan. This recipe calls for an 8×8 baking pan. I just had to replace several of mine and found some on sale on Amazon.
I love the ones with lids especially if I am taking this dessert somewhere. This set from Wilton is my favorite.
I also like to take this dessert when I’m taking a meal to new moms or those recovering from surgery. In those instances, I use disposable 8×8 pans to they can just be tossed.
This is so handy so no one has to worry about washing and returning. Plus, they have the ones with the lids as well. They are so convenient.

I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for leaving a review.
Do you need to sweeten the strawberries ?
You can but I never do and it tastes great without it.
How many servings does this make?
This makes 10 servings.
I make this often. I’ve done it with blueberries, raspberries and strawberry’s.
And I’ve made it with all the berry’s at once..My Dad’s favorite is the strawberry. He loves strawberry shortcake and this is even better..This will be a Thanksgiving Hit with the crowd. TLC
This was easy to make and it taste delicious!!!
I used strawberries! Awesome!
I’ve made this recipe with chocolate Graham crackers, strawberries and Bananas. It’s delicious!
I made this cake and everyone absolutely loved it. It was sooooo easy and quick to make. Thanks.
I also wanted to say I made this with sugar free cool whip and sweetened the Strawberries with swerve for those who could not do sugar. The honey maid graham crackers has some sugar but over all I got high marks on it.
Trying this today – so simple it can’t miss. I will be using fresh strawberries but am wondering – have you ever used frozen berries, blueberries, etc?
Yes I have and it is delicious. You might want to try this one https://www.eatingonadime.com/4th-of-july-icebox-cake-recipe/.
