Strawberry Icebox cake is s great dish to allow the kids to help.

This is a perfect recipe to let kids make. They can learn safe knife and oven skills (if you choose to use the oven). This recipe also allows for creativity. It doesn't have to be followed exactly. Kids can add whatever fruit they like and assemble it in any order they want. 




  • (2) 8 oz Sugar Free or Lite Cool Whip
  • 1 lb. Strawberries, sliced
  • Graham Crackers
  • Optional: Blueberries or other fruit of choice

  1. Rinse strawberries and blueberries (if using). Slice Strawberries and set both aside. 
  2. Grab an 8x8 baking dish. Layer the bottom with 1/2 container of cool whip.

  5. Continue adding a layer of graham crackers, cool whip and fruit.
