  • ½ of a prepared angel food cake, cut into 1 inch cubes (you need a total of about 6-7 cups of loosely-packed cake cubes) (I used a boxed cake mix to prepare my own cake, but you can also buy angel food cakes in the bakery section at most grocery stores)
  • 1 (8 ounce) carton frozen whipped topping, thawed (I used sugar-free Cool Whip, but any similar variety will work)
  • 1 (1 ounce) box instant sugar-free, fat-free cheesecake pudding mix (DRY MIX only) (you can substitute with a 3.4 ounce box of instant cheesecake pudding mix)
  • 2 tablespoons milk (or more, as necessary)
  • 1 (21 oz) can blueberry pie filling (about 2 ⅓ cups)
  • 1 lb. fresh berries (such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and/or blackberries)


  • Combine whipped topping, pudding mix, and enough milk to make mixture smooth and creamy.
  • Fold in cake cubes and spread evenly into an ungreased 11x7-inch dish.
  • Top with pie filling.
  • Refrigerate, covered, for at least 2 hours (or overnight).
  • Just before serving, top with fresh berries.


Recipe adapted from Taste of Home.
  • For a quick-prep option that makes this an entirely no-bake dessert, purchase a pre-made Angel Food Cake in your grocer's bakery section. If you can't find a ready to go cake, you can make your own with a boxed mix (just be sure to allow for a couple of more hours of prep time to let the cake cool).
  • I used cheesecake flavored pudding mix, but you can substitute with any flavor that you like. Vanilla pudding or lemon pudding would also work well. Whether you choose the sugar-free fat-free pudding mix or the regular pudding mix, you'll need the small box.
  • Instead of the blueberry pie filling, try using strawberry or raspberry pie filling on top of your cake. A strawberry ice box cake with fresh strawberries on top would be delicious!
  • How long does icebox cake last? This dessert will stay fresh in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 days.
  • I do not recommend freezing leftover icebox cake. The texture of the berries and of the whipped cream mixture will be "off" after thawing.
