Today I’m getting together with some of my best blogger friends today to host an online baby shower for our good friend Lisa. Lisa blogs over at Wine & Glue, and you probably see her cute face on my blog every week, since she’s one of my Wake Up Wednesdays co-hosts.  I got to meet Lisa last December when we baked in the Pillsbury Test Kitchen together, so I can honestly say she’s one of the sweetest, funniest, lovliest gals I’ve had the opportunity to know.

If you don’t know Lisa, you need to hop on over to her internet space and check it out for an hour or three.  And make sure to look at her recipe for Carrot Cake Fudge, because OMG I need that right now.

Anywhoo, Lisa is getting ready to have a new baby girl…and since we can’t all be there with her to celebrate in person, we’re doing the next best thing. ;-)

Since we’re finally into spring weather here and strawberries in my grocery store are finally nearing a reasonable price, I loaded up on a ton so I could make this Strawberry Coconut-Lime Icebox cake. You guys. This cake literally takes five minutes to assemble, and then you just shove it in the fridge for a few hours. Easy-peasy! And so pretty!

If you’re not into the coconut thing (like my husband), you could totally leave it out…but personally, I love these flavors mixed together.  I also love allowing my strawberries to macerate with a bit of lime juice and almond extract {macerating is the process of soaking fruit in liquid, which softens it and also often adds flavor or sweetness} – you can substitute vanilla extract for almond if you prefer, but I highly recommend you give it a try with the almond flavoring.  It’s the best!

Strawberry Coconut-Lime Icebox Cake

Ingredients

  • 1 pound strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • juice of half of a lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • approximately 8 graham crackers

Instructions

  1. Rinse, hull and quarter your strawberries. Place them in a medium bowl and sprinkle with 1/4 cup granulated sugar, the juice of half of a lime, and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract. Stir to combine; set aside.
  2. While the berries are macerating, make your whipped cream: combine 2 cups heavy cream, 2 cups powdered sugar, and 1 tablespoon almond extract in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat until stiff peaks form.
  3. Line a 9x5 bread pan with saran wrap. Layer one-third of the whipped cream into the bottom of the pan, spreading out evenly. Sprinkle half of the coconut on top of the whipped cream. Top with one-half of your strawberries (along with the juice). Top with a layer of graham crackers.
  4. Repeat, adding another one-third of the whipped cream, the remaining coconut, and the remaining strawberries/juice. Top with the remaining graham crackers. Cover and freeze for about 2 hours. Place the remaining one-third whipped cream into the refrigerator while the cake is freezing.
  5. After two hours, remove pan from freezer and invert onto a serving plate. Cover with remaining whipped cream. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
