Lemon IceBox Cake

This no-bake lemon icebox cake is light, refreshing layers of lemon pudding, cool whip, and graham crackers then is topped with lemon zest for the perfect summer dessert!

Icebox cakes are so simple to make and are always a crowd pleaser when brought to summer get-togethers or BBQs.

Ingredients

  • 2 (3.5 ounce) packages instant lemon pudding mix
  • 1 (8 ounce) package Cool Whip
  • 3 cups milk
  • Zest of ½ of a lemon
  • ½ of a lemon juice
  • 1 (16 ounce) package graham crackers

Lemon Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • Zest of ½ of a lemon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice

Instructions

In a large bowl, mix together the pudding mixes, zest of lemon, lemon juice, Cool Whip, and milk.

In a 9 x 13 inch pan, place a single layer of graham crackers on the bottom of the pan (you may need to break a few graham crackers so that the entire bottom of the pan is covered).

Spread half of the pudding mixture evenly over the graham crackers. 

Place another single layer of graham crackers on top of the pudding and then layer the second half of the pudding on top of those crackers.

Place one more single layer of graham crackers on top of the pudding.

Mix together ingredients for the lemon frosting and spread over all.

Cover and place in the fridge for about 4 hours.

This cake is even better the next day.
