Lemon Icebox Cake- this cool and creamy no-bake dessert is made with layers of graham crackers, lemon pudding, and a Cool Whip topping. With lots of fresh lemon flavor, this easy dessert is perfect for summer.
I like to serve it with fresh raspberries or blackberries. Fresh fruit goes so well with lemon and it adds another burst of color.
Another great lemon dessert is this Lemon Lush. It has a buttery, pecan crust, a cream cheese layer, lemon pudding layer, and a Cool Whip layer. So delicious. I’m not sure which one I like better.
For ease and convenience though, you can’t beat this Lemon Icebox Cake. It only takes about 10 minutes to make and then it needs to be refrigerated for about 2 hours. The graham crackers get soft and create an unbelievable texture. Dessert making doesn’t get any easier than this Icebox Cake.
