No-Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake

On Saturday, Tom and I will be attending the 2016 MGS Summer Picnic, and I decided to bring a No-Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake, among other things. Since it has to chill for several hours, I made it tonight.
No Bake Strawberry Icebox Cake

  • 19 oz graham crackers
  • 2 pounds fresh strawberries
  • 3 ½ c ups heavy cream
  • 1 banana, sliced thin
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  1. Cream powdered sugar, vanilla and salt with the heavy cream in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat until the cream mixture holds stiff peaks.
  2. Spread a thin layer of heavy cream mix in a 9x13 pan just to coat the bottom.
  3. Layer 5 graham crackers across the center of the pan, then 2 more, breaking them as needed to fit around the top and bottom edges.
  4. Spread a thick layer of heavy cream mix over grahams and top with a hearty layer of sliced strawberries.
  5. Place graham crackers on top of strawberries, then heavy cream mix, then layer of thinly sliced bananas.
  6. Repeat the graham-strawberries-cream layers 1 more time (3 times total) and you should reach the top of the pan.
  7. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight until the graham crackers have softened completely.
  8. Top with a few sliced strawberries or whole strawberries if you desired.
  9. Serve chilled.
We'll see on Saturday how it turned out.
