No Bake Summer Berry Icebox Cake

While searching for 4th of July inspired dessert recipes I came across this one by Cakes Cottage and absolutely fell in love with how simple it was to make. Not gonna lie I'm still working on my cooking/baking skills so I was pretty happy about how simple it was to make. The prep time only took about 20 minutes, while the actual waiting until you could eat it time took about 4 hours. It is very yummy and well worth the wait. It will be perfect for any 4th of July cookout or just a summer cookout in general. I used blueberries and strawberries for a 4th of July theme, but honestly you could make this with any desired fruit. This recipe serves 12-16.



  • 9x13 pan

  • 1 box of graham crackers (I just used Kroger's original brand)

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened

  • 2 (3.4 oz) packages of Vanilla Instant Pudding

  • 2-1/2 cups cold milk

  • 12 oz cool whip or homemade whipped cream (I used Cool Whip Extra Creamy Whipped topping)

  • 3 cups fresh strawberries, sliced

  • 1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries

  • 2 oz white chocolate chips or white chocolate baking bar


  1. Beat cream cheese and dry pudding mixes in a large bowl with mixer until blended.

  2. Gradually beat in milk.

  3. Gently stir in Cool Whip , save 1/2 cup for spreading on bottom layer of pan.

  4. Spread a thin layer of cool whip across the bottom of the pan.

  5. Layer 5-7 graham crackers across the bottom of the pan. Breaking them as needed to fill the space.

  6. Spread a layer or pudding mixture over graham crackers and top with a layer of blueberries and sliced strawberries, or whatever fruit you desire to use.

  7. Place a layer of graham crackers of top of berries, then pudding mixture, then graham crackers again.Repeat the graham cracker-pudding-berries layers 1 more time making it 3 times total and you should reach the top of the pan.

  8. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight until the graham crackers have softened completely.

  9. When ready to serve, melt white chocolate chips (as directed on bag), and drizzle across the top of the cake.

  10. I used a spoon to drizzle the chocolate.

  11. That's it. Now it's time to enjoy the cake.


Much Love, Reba Faye
