Strawberry Cheesecake Dream Bars

Makes 8 servings


  • 16 oz strawberries, plus 4 more strawberries, fresh
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 recipe of stabilized whipped cream
  • 1 1/3 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 5 tbsp butter, unsalted
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 3.4-ounce package strawberry creme pudding


  1. Set 5 whole strawberries aside for decoration. Mash 4 of them for the cream cheese mixture. Slice the remaining strawberries.
  2. Prepare an 8x8 baking dish by spraying it with cooking spray.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter and mix until well incorporated.
  4. Press into the prepared baking dish, and place into the freezer for a minimum of 30 minutes to set.
  5. In a small bowl, mix the 1 1/2 cups milk with the package of strawberry pudding. DO NOT use the 2 cups as directed on the package. We want a firmer pudding. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  6. Place the cream cheese, mashed strawberries and confectioners' sugar into a mixing bowl. Cream until soft and well combined. Fold in 1 cup of the stabilized whipped cream or Cool Whip and gently mix.
  7. Remove the crust from the freezer and completely cover with a single layer of strawberries.
  8. With an offset spatula, place dollops of the cream cheese on top of the strawberries and gently spread until completely covered.
  9. Spread the pudding layer over the cream cheese.
  10. Top with the remaining stabilized whipped cream or Cool Whip.
  11. Top with the remaining whole and sliced strawberries, and sprinkle with more graham cracker crumbs.
  12. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving to set.

Strawberry Ice Cream
Strawberry Ice Cream

Strawberry Ice Cream Recipe


  • 2 cups (480ml) cold heavy whipping cream
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
  • 1 pound of fresh strawberries or thawed frozen strawberries, mashed
  • Red food coloring to achieve a brighter pink color (optional)
  • A few slices of strawberry for garnish (optional)


  1. Mash strawberries in a bowl and set aside. If using thawed frozen strawberries, drain the excess juices and water first, then mash the strawberries. If using fresh strawberries, keep the juices.
  2. In the large bowl of a stand mixer, or in a large bowl and using an electric hand mixer, add all of the heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk.
  3. Whip the heavy cream mixture on high speed until stiff peaks form (to prevent massive splattering, start out at a slower speed and as the cream thickens, increase the speed). Don't over mix or "break" the whip cream mixture.
  4. Pour the mashed strawberries into the mixture and gently fold in until combined. (Optional: for a brighter pink color, add a few drops of red food coloring into the mixture and gently stir.)
  5. Pour the whipped mixture into a freezer-safe container. We like to use a bread pan. Top with a few slices of strawberries for garnish (optional). Cover and freeze for about 4-5 hours. In about 3-4 hours you can have a "soft serve" type ice cream. If you prefer a more firm texture, freeze for at least 5-6 hours or overnight.

Strawberry Lush Cake
Strawberry Lush Cake

Strawberry Lush Cake


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 18 Golden Oreos
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 (8-ounce boxes) cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 cups strawberries hulled (1 1/2 cups chopped and 2 1/2 cups sliced)
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar


  1. Spray 8x11-inch casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Pulse Oreos in food processor until crumbed. Combine with melted butter. Press into casserole dish evenly and place in the freezer.
  3. In a stand mixer, combine cream cheese, sugar and orange extract. Mix on medium high until well combined and creamy; scraping the sides. Fold in sour cream and chopped strawberries. Evenly spread over the cookie crust. Freeze for 1 hour.
  4. Add sliced strawberries evenly over dessert and place back in the freezer while you make the whipped cream.
  5. Add whipping cream and powdered sugar to a mixing bowl. Beat just until stiff peaks form. Spread evenly over dessert. Serve immediately.


  • When whipping cream, it is helpful to put your mixing bowl and beater in the freezer for 15 minutes prior to making.
  • You can make this in a 9x13, but I would increase the Oreo cookies to 25 and use 4 tablespoons of butter and add 3 cups of sliced strawberries.

No Bake Strawberry Shortcake Dessert
No Bake Strawberry Shortcake Dessert

No-Bake Strawberry Shortcake Dessert

4 hrs to make, serves 8-10


  • 1 lb strawberries, fresh
  • 1 1/2 containers (8 ounces each) cool whip topping
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 25 Golden Oreos
  • 2 tbsp butter, unsalted
  • 1 1/2 cups milk, nonfat
  • 1 box vanilla instant pudding


  1. Whisk pudding, milk, and vanilla in a medium sized bowl. Let it sit while you prepare the crust.
  2. Crush the cookies in a large gallon sized ziploc bag using a rolling pin. Reserve 1/2 cup of the cookie crumbs. Place the 2 tablespoons melted butter in the bag and press with your hands to work the butter through the remaining cookie crumbs. Pour crumbs into a 9” square baking dish. The crust won’t be solid, it’ll stay crumbly.
  3. Fold 8 ounces of the whipped topping into the pudding. Place half the pudding mixture on top of the crust. Place the strawberries in a single layer over the pudding. Spread remaining pudding mix over the top of the berries. Top with more whipped topping and sprinkle the remaining cookies over the top.
  4. Chill for at least 4 hours before serving.


If you want to use fresh whipped cream, go ahead! You'll need at least 2-3 cups of cold heavy whipping cream. Whip it until stiff peaks form then substitute it for the whipped topping. 8 ounces of Cool Whip is approximately 4 cups of whipped cream.
