No-Bake Blackberry Icebox Cake

Esta entrada también está disponible en: Español

No-Bake Blackberry Icebox Cake is perfect right now as a sweet and refreshingly cool dessert for hot summer days. It’s easy, too, you can make it in advance, keep it in the fridge, and enjoy it anytime.

This No-Bake Blackberry Icebox Cake is made possible by a collaboration with Nestlé® La Lechera® and Dime Media. As always, my comments, opinions, and love for fruity desserts are my own.

During these hot, sunny, summer days, we find ourselves craving cool foods and using the oven as little as possible, which makes this the ideal recipe.

During the summer, I remember my mom would make desserts called, “Carlotas.” In my family this meant frozen or refrigerated desserts made with some type of biscuit, like ladyfingers or Marías, with fruit or lime juice mixed in and with La Lechera® sweetened condensed milk.

In addition to being both easy and fun to make, these look beautiful on the table, making them an ideal treat for celebrations with friends and family.

What Sweetness Unites, No One Can Separate

But what I like best about making them is my sons can help me. This recipe works great as an introduction to making desserts. My younger son, who wonders aloud sometimes if cooking is hard, accepted wholeheartedly my invitation to join me in the kitchen to make this recipe. He helped me from beginning to end. He liked blending the fruit in the food processor and adding the biscuits to the glasses the most.

This blackberry dessert takes just a couple of hours to chill, but the longer it stays in the fridge, the softer the biscuits get. I like that. I like to prepare them, therefore, a day ahead of time so they can be well chilled and the biscuits can absorb plenty of that blackberry goodness.

Serving it up in individual cups or glasses is an easy way to adjust the portion sizes depending on the age and needs of your friends and family.
