Strawberry & 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. 🙂

Description

This Strawberry & Blueberry Cheesecake Icebox Cake has become a new family favorite. This crowd pleasing no-bake recipe is easy to prepare with only six ingredients!


Scale

Ingredients

  • two 3.4 oz packages cheesecake flavored pudding
  • 4 1/2 cups (1080 ml) milk, divided
  • two 15.25 oz boxes golden Oreos
  • 1 lb package strawberries, washed and sliced
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 12 oz Cool Whip (or homemade whipped cream)

Instructions

1. Make both cheesecake flavored puddings according to directions on package, using 4 cups of the milk. Set aside.
2. Put remaining 1/2 cup milk into a small bowl.
3. Dip Oreos in milk quickly and then place into the bottom of a 9×13 pan, making a single layer.
4. Spread half of the cheesecake pudding on top of the Oreos.
5. Add a single layer of strawberry slices on top of the cheesecake pudding.
6. Spread half of the Cool Whip on top of the strawberries.
7. Dip remaining Oreos in milk quickly and place on top of the Cool Whip, in a single layer.
8. Top Oreos with remaining cheesecake pudding.
9. Add a layer of blueberries, reserving about 1/3 cup for the topping.
10. Top with remaining Cool Whip.
 11. Chop the remaining strawberry slices and add those and the remaining blueberries to the top of the cake.
12. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Notes

If you’d like to use homemade whipped cream, I recommend 1 3/4 cup (420 ml) heavy whipping cream, 3/4 cup (86g) powdered sugar and 1 tsp vanilla extract.

    I made this last year for 4th of July. It was delicious and got rave reviews form friends and family. A friend asked for the recipe and also got rave reviews. Friend just called as she wants to make again and couldn’t find her recipe.

  2. LSN

    Hi! This looks great for an upcoming 4th of July get together. Do you think I could make it dairy free? Maybe pudding mixed into almond milk and some sort of whio cream substitute?
    Thanks!

  3. Amber

    I made this icebox cake for a Father’s Day get-together, and it received glowing reviews with lots of “mmmm”s. Thanks for a great recipe! 

  4. Brooks

    How far ahead do you think this could be made? I’m wondering if making it a Friday afternoon and eat it Saturday night? I don’t want the Oreos to get super mushy!

  5. Tessa

    I just made this for our 4th of July get together tomorrow. Do you also put the fruit on top the day before or wait until the last minute? I feel like if I do it now the juices from the berries will mix with the Cool Whip on top and make the colors swirl more. I’m planning to do the top berries tomorrow but I’m curious what you did.

    1. Lindsay

      I’m so sorry for the delay in being able to respond. I hope it turned out well! I would probably say you could wait until the day you serve it, just to be safe. But I do believe I’ve added the fruit the day before as well and it’s been fine.

  6. Darlene P

    I made this for our Independence Day celebration. So fabulous! Everyone loved it. The pan I made it in was literally scraped clean! This has officially gone on the picnic menu. Thank you for sharing.

  7. Dana Genova

    I am making this today for a party tomorrow at 12pm. How far in advance can I make this dessert? Excited! 

  8. Shannon

    This looks amazing! I have a predicament, though. I am an American currently living in the UK. I’m throwing a 4th of July party for my international friends and would love to make this as a dessert (it’s delicious, patriotic and easy – perfect). The problem is finding certain ingredients here that we consider common in the US can be hard, in this case: instant cheese cake pudding. If I go to the American food store I can get banana or vanilla. Do you think the recipe would be equally as good with either of those flavors or should I try something else? Thanks for your help!

  9. Elizabeth Raimondo

    I found this recipe on pinterest & I thought it looked good. I made it for a 4th of July party yesterday & everyone loved it. The golden oreo and cheesecake flavor make it different from similar recipes I’ve tried. I used freshly picked strawberries since the ones at the grocery store did not look good. I would make this again and not change a thing. Thank you for sharing!

  10. Catrina

    I made this dessert last night, July 2nd, because we were supposed to get together with family tonight. Our gathering has been cancelled due to heavy rain and rescheduled for Sunday. Since I made this Thursday night, will it be safe to keep refrigerated until Sunday afternoon? Should I freeze it? Do I need to make a new one? Thanks for your opinion!

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      I’m sorry I wasn’t able to respond sooner. I hope it turned out alright. It should’ve been ok for a few days in the fridge.

  11. Emily

    did you use the cool whip or whipped cream or which one do you prefer ? Trying to decide which one to use

    Thanks !!

  12. Morgan

    I’m excited to make this for Father’s Day this coming weekend! But I have a question… Did you use instant cheesecake flavored pudding or the cook and serve pudding? I automatically assume the instant, but I don’t want to mess up this recipe 🙂
    Thanks!

  13. Amy

    Just made this with fat free cool whip, sugar free cheesecake pudding, a box of nilla wafers, strawberries, and blueberries. I halved it and put it in an 8×8 dish. Plan to let it sit overnight and try tomorrow (almost 24 hours) – it looks delicious! My 6 year old son can’t wait to try it!

  14. Kelly

    Made this for my family picnic on Memorial Day. It was a huge hit! Everyone loved it; half the people went back for seconds. Delicious and so easy. Thanks for sharing!

  15. The Better Baker

    Oh how I am in love with this recipe. Wish I had seen it before Memorial Day. I will be certainly making it this summer…everything about it is wonderful! Pinned!!

  16. Emily Taege

    So get this, I actually had half a pan left over from my party– so I took it home and put it in my ice cream maker and it’s the most awesome strawberry shortcake ice cream ever! (Thinned it out with a little more whipping cream first)

  17. SPayne

    I want to make this! Do you think it would be ok to put the cookies in a food processor instead of leaving them whole? This would basically eliminate the need to dip them in milk. If you are familiar with the Oreo Dirt Cake recipe, it would be similar to that where the cookies are like crumbs. What are your thoughts?

    So i followed your moms advice and made this for the 4th. It was AMAZING!!! It was yummy and easy and just delightful!! Thank you for a fun and easy and yummy recipe. 🙂

  20. Marni

    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.

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      I’m so glad you loved it Marni! And I’m glad you’ve found the recipe! Thanks for the comment – you made my day. 🙂

  21. laura

    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

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      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.

      1. laura

        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.

    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

    1. lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com

      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.
