No-Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake is sweet, creamy and crunchy and made with only 5 ingredients! The perfect make-ahead dessert recipe you can leave to chill in the fridge and serve come party time!



3 cups heavy cream

3 tbsp powdered sugar

1 tbsp vanilla extract

2 sleeves graham crackers

1 lb strawberries, sliced


Whip cream: In a large bowl with an electric stand or hand mixer, add the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat on high until whip cream is light and fluffy. Be careful not to overmix.

Layer and chill: In a standard 8-1/2 x 4-1/2 x 2-½ loaf tin, begin with a layer of graham crackers. Then, add a 1-inch layer of whip cream and then a layer of sliced strawberries. Continue in this order until the tin is full. You should get about 3-4 more layers. Garnish the top with crushed graham crackers and sliced strawberries. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.


Homemade whip cream can be replaced with a cool whip if you are short on time.
