I made my first one last year. It was a banana icebox cake. The problem, not everyone in my house loves bananas. I decided to create my own recipe with my fresh strawberries. I am a huge, strawberry lover. Are you? 

As a matter of fact, everyone in my house and family loves strawberries, which made this recipe a winner in our house. I love no-bake desserts for when it’s too hot to bake. You might remember our tiramisu affogato recipe? It’s another good no-bake dessert to check out.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Additional Time 4 hours
Total Time 4 hours 20 minutes


  • Vanilla Wafers 1 large box or more
  • Strawberries 2-3 baskets
  • Heavy Whipping Cream 6 ounces, 2-3 oz. cartons
  • A softened cube of butter
  • Pam non stick cooking spray
  • Vanilla 2 tsp.
  • Confectioners Sugar 1 cup
  • Cool Whip


  1. Pre spray your 9 x 13 baking dish with Pam *or another non stick spray.
  2. Wash, dry and hull your strawberries. Set them aside.
  3. Crush 2 cups of Vanilla Wafers in a mixing bowl. (reserve rest for layering)
  4. Add 2-1/2 melted tablespoons of butter to your crushed wafers and stir. Next dump them into your baking dish and press flat covering the entire bottom of the dish.
  5. In a large (chilled) mixing bowl whip up one of your cartons or 3oz. of whipping cream until the whipping cream peaks. Next add vanilla and confectioners sugar. Whip until peaks again. Cover and set into fridge until needed.
  6. Cut your strawberries into slices.
  7. Begin to assemble by layering strawberries, whip cream, wafers, whip cream, strawberries for final layer before topping.
  8. For the topping: take half a container of Cool Whip or mix up more whipping cream. For the whipping cream topping mix whipping cream with Confectioners Sugar (1 cup)
  9. and Vanilla (2 tsp.) (omit sugar & vanilla if using the Cool Whip).
  10. Then add a half cup to one cup of chopped strawberries that have been muddled a little (just smash them a bit) Next mix it together with your whipped topping. Add this final whipped strawberry layer to the top of the strawberry icebox cake, then top with extra strawberries and Vanilla Wafers.
  11. Be sure to set your finished icebox cake in the fridge to set up at least 4 hours!


The reason I topped with Cool Whip is because I ran out of whipping cream to do the final layer. I just happened to have one in the freezer so I let it thaw and used it. No matter if the top layer is Cool Whip or Whip Cream it will be fine. If using Cool Whip you will not have to sweeten or add the vanilla. You will still add strawberries to the top layer.

Be sure to set your finished icebox cake in the fridge to set up at least 4 hours!

This no bake dish can be made the night before.

Cover the dish with saran wrap prior to storing in the refrigerator.
