What can I make without an oven?

No-bake desserts are an excellent option for the summer-time when you do not want to heat your oven! A few of my favorite no-bake recipes include these No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars, this No-Bake Cherry Chocolate Cheesecake, and this Divinity Candy.

Can I substitute the cool whip?

In my experience, I have found that Cool Whip keeps longer and holds up better with refrigeration. However, it can be substituted with an equal amount of whipped cream. Just beware that it may not set as well after chilling in the fridge. 

Can I Freeze Strawberry Lasagna?

Yes, you can freeze this dessert. Make sure to cover it with two layers of plastic wrap or foil to help it stay fresh. When ready to use it, thaw it in the fridge the night before. You can serve it while still partially frozen to have more of an ice cream cake texture.

  6. Russell Hall says:

    Turned out beautiful, taste superb, light not to heavy, worth the time to prepare!

  7. I added crushed and whole freeze dried blueberries to the top layer and it was a red white and blue dessert for 4th of July. So good.

  8. Reesa Compton says:

    Made this for the Fourth of July, didn’t look like the picture but it was a big hit with young and old. I used regular Oreos for the crust.( we like chocolate). It may be my go to dessert for the holiday. I would probably recommend freezing it because in the heat it is really soft and looses it shape.

  9. Marja Thompson says:

    The recipe says 0.3 oz box strawberry jello. Does that mean one third of the box of jello or is it a typo and you use a whole, normal 3 oz box of jello?

    1. Thanks for calling this to my attention. It was a typo, and it should be a 3 oz box of Jello. The recipe is now correct.
