June Recipe: No Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake
Even after up-and-down spring temperatures, the central Ohio strawberry crop is at its peak. Visit the Uptown Westerville Farmer’s Market to pick up some fresh berries to put together this easy, no bake dessert. This recipe can also be used with any fresh berries that happen to be in season.
Package (3.4 oz.) of cheesecake flavored pudding mix
*Note: If you are unable to locate this pudding flavor, you can substitute with a vanilla pudding mix as an alternative
2 c. milk
12 graham crackers
2 lbs. fresh strawberries (other berries may be used as well!) washed and sliced
3 c. fresh or premade whipped cream
Make the pudding according to the directions provided on the box. Allow pudding to firm for a minimum of five minutes.
Wash and slice berries, pulling out 30 slices for the topping. Take the remaining berries and divide into two equal parts.
If using fresh whipped cream (1 c. heavy whipping cream, ½ c. powdered sugar, ½ tsp. vanilla), whip cream until stiff peaks appear and then mix in the sugar and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine ½ of whipped cream and ½ of pudding mixture. Mix well. Reserve ½ of the mixture for the topping and set aside.
Spread a thin layer of the pudding and whipped cream mixture onto the bottom of a glass, 8×8 square pan. Cover the layer with graham crackers, breaking and piecing them together as needed.
Cover the graham crackers with half of the remaining pudding and cream mixture. Add strawberry slices to cover the entire pan. Repeat with another layer of the graham crackers, pudding and strawberries.
Add the final layer of graham crackers on top and cover with reserved pudding and cream mix and strawberry slices.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.
