Easy gluten-free vegan strawberry ice box cake no bake

Icebox cakes are layered cakes that consist of whipped cream, wafers or Graham crackers.

Traditional No-Bake Icebox is made from store-bought ingredients. 

This recipe is made with homemade vegan whipped cream and Graham crackers.

As the ingredients are layered and placed in the refrigerator, they slowly soften and merge into a creamy, decadent cake that no longer resembles or has the texture of the original.

Ingredients For Strawberry Icebox Cake

  • Homemade gluten-free Graham crackers will soften turning into the texture of the cake as it soaks up the coconut whipped cream, sliced strawberries, and banana. 
  • Homemade coconut whipped cream – to give a light pillowy soft layer to the icebox cake. 
  • Strawberries
  • Banana
