Strawberry and Blueberry Cheesecake Icebox Cake

This Strawberry and Blueberry Cheesecake Icebox Cake has become a new family and friend favorite. It boasts a very simple list of ingredients and it’s no bake, which are both big selling points in my book. And if your experience with it is anything like mine, you’ll have people hounding you for the recipe.

Strawberry and Blueberry Cheesecake Icebox Cake

I made this for Memorial Day. It was the perfect time to make it really – it will now serve double duty. A festive, holiday appropriate dessert – which doesn’t often happen in a food blogger’s home where holiday appropriate desserts are made a month or more in advance – that can still be posted for another upcoming holiday. Score!

I made it the night before Memorial Day while my mom was putting dinner together for that night (Sunday). That means I had my mom, dad, husband and sister all hovering to see what in the world I was making.

I saw the kind of questioning looks I was getting too. Like -

“She calls herself a food blogger? What is that? Surely that can’t be very good.”

I’d never made this before and had only ever seen it in my mind, so I won’t lie, they started to make me question myself a bit.

I mean, I had two containers of golden oreos, two packages of cheesecake flavored pudding, whipped cream, strawberries and blueberries.

To the untrained baker (which is basically everyone in my family), it looks like a disaster waiting to happen. Like, what could I possibly make with those easy ingredients that could be that great?

To me though, it looked like the makings of sheer bliss.

Guess who was right.

I got up the next morning while many were still sleeping and completely butchered the thing while taking pictures. That’s another thing that always happens in a food blogger’s home – you never get a dessert that doesn’t already have a slice or bite or something taken out of it. You can’t be offended easily. Fortunately, I’ve gotten pretty decent at putting things back together.

As my mom came down the stairs, I had finished with the photos, so I walked over to her with a forkful. I normally get the, “Not before my coffee!” but she didn’t fight me.

And boy was she glad she didn’t. Turns out it goes excellent with coffee! And it goes excellent with my mom too. Talk about a fan! :)

And then my sister, who will tell you any day of the week that she doesn’t like sweets, tried it – and she loved it! Like really loved it! As the rest of our family came over later in the day, she and my mom kept telling everyone they had to try it.

Some friends were there too. They had it and loved it.

Now, they all want the recipe and no longer think I’m completely crazy. My fabulous-ness has been restored.

Well here it is! So easy that even my mom is willing to make it. :)

She has already declared that it will be served for the fourth of July and she made me promise to tell you that she said, “You HAVE to make it!”

Now that she has spoken, I’d say you better get on it. She can be scary when you don’t listen to her. :)

  14. Hi There-
    Your Strawberry and Blueberry Cheesecake Icebox Cake looks divine!! Are those Golden Oreos readily available? I haven’t seen those and also have not seen the cheesecake flavored pudding mix. I wonder if I could use the regular Oreos and vanilla or butterscotch flavored pudding mix! Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks. Elana

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      The golden oreos are easy to find around us – I just get them at the grocery store. Same for the pudding. If you have trouble finding them though, you could definitely make the substitutions you suggested.

  15. I made the strawberry and blueberry cheesecake icebox cake and it was enjoyed by all. I have two questions? Do you think you could substitute the sugar free cheesecake pudding for the regular cheesecake pudding? For some reason the sugar free was more readily available in my area. Also, Is there another cookie or base that could be used? I found that the filling of the oreo overwhelmed the faste of the other ingredients Thanks so much

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      I’m so glad everyone liked it! :) I think the sugar free pudding would be fine to use. It shouldn’t really change it. And for other cookie options, you could try vanilla wafers or graham crackers.

      • Great ideas, I was also wondering if a shortbread cookie would work or if it would be too dense. Thanks for your very prompt reply. Have a great 4th of July.

  16. So I saw this at a 4th of July party and it didn’t look like much (I’m a chocolate girl) so I was going to skip it but my sister insisted I try it. I was blown away!!! It is the best dessert I’ve ever had! I found the girl who made it and she told me some ingredients and it was on Pinterest. Well I looked through her entire pinterest twice to no avail and google searched till I finally found it here! I can’t wait to make it. I foresee this being a regular at every family gathering.
