Frozen Strawberry Fluff

Strawberries are plentiful at the grocery store right now. I’ve been making a number of strawberry desserts (Strawberry Ice Cream, anyone?).

Since it’s HOT and gross outside, I like my desserts cold to keep me feeling cool. This Frozen Strawberry Fluff is the perfect dessert for sticky, humid summer day. Each bite goes down soooo easily. Gotta love that strawberry sweetness!

The bottom layer is a cookie crust. You need to bake that a little, but only for 8 minutes. The rest of the process is no-bake.

The main star of the show is the sweet strawberry layer. Matty, my partner, said it tasted more like frozen yogurt than ice cream. I used fresh strawberries, but you could also use frozen strawberries if that is all you have at home. 

You could even substitute the berries for another kind like blueberries or raspberries.

How to Make Cookie Crumbs

It doesn’t matter what kind of cookie you use for this recipe. I would suggest using a cookie that doesn’t have a filling and is just the cookie itself. I used coconut cookies. 

Add the cookies to a plastic freezer bag and seal shut. Grab a rolling pin and start rolling on the cookies until they are fine crumbs.

How to Make

Making Frozen Strawberry Fluff is straightforward. Start by preheating the oven to 350F. Grease a 9 inch square baking pan.

Add the cookie crumbs and melted butter to a medium bowl. Press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.

Add egg whites and lemon juice to a large bowl. Beat with a mixer until fluffy. Gradually add in the sugar and strawberries. Continue to beat until the mixture is more fluffy and has large volume.

Fold in the whipped cream. Spread mixture over the cookie crust. Cover and freeze overnight.

When ready to serve, cut into squares. Garnish with fresh strawberries if you wish.

How to Store

Two ways. You can continue to store it, covered, in the freezer. Store it for up to 7 days.

You can also store it in the fridge. The strawberry layer will be softer and the cookie layer not as hard. Matty’s parents preferred it stored this way.
