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.

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.

  1. This is in regards to the strawberry icebox cake. I’ve made it before but my recipe calls for putting the graham crackers in first and then layering. Looking at the picture it looks like that’s what was done. It would be messy scooping out with the cool whip down first. What do you think?

  2. Linda – Either way would work great. We usually start with the whipped cream because we love lots of whipped cream but starting with the graham crackers would work great too!

    I made this again for my Secret Sister Reveal party at my church. I added some blueberries on the top layer. It was such a big hit the last time I made it.

  4. I made this for a graduation party. Easy and a big hit. I think it’s even yummier the longer it sits. I ate it the day after my party and it was more moist and had a more strawberry flavor. Yummy and easy

  5. Could you make this the night before and freeze it then bring it out to defrost? Or would it be soggy?

  6. If you are making it the night before serving it, I would just store it in the refrigerate. You would not need to freeze it. It tastes great made the day before as the flavor has time to combine. I hope you enjoy the recipe. Thank you!

  7. I made this recipe and my husband and granddaughter loved it.
    Can you use honey graham crackers instead of Nabisco graham crackers?

  8. I see you recommend making it the night before, do you foresee any issue if it sat for two nights before serving? Thank you!

  9. This no bake strawberry icebox cake
    looks delicious!! I plan to make it for my

    friend for her birthday.

  10. This is an out of this world delicious, easy wonderful summer desert recipe! Made it tonight for 4th of July dinner tomorrow. Had to get into it tonight, yummmmm!

  11. I plan to make this tomorrow. I have friends coming over for lunch. I’m sure they are going to love it.

    I made this recipe with home-made whipped cream and blueberries (because that’s what was in the fridge) as a spur of the moment addition to our Easter meal today. It was so easy and delicious. I also had made 2 other desserts but this was the favourite by far. Thanks for sharing this recipe, we will definitely make it again and again.

  13. 4 stars
    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
