Whoop, Whoop it’s back to school time around here! Or are you hiding in the corner crying? I find that there seems to be a lot of mixed emotions about this topic. I, personally, remember as a kid that I was torn from the ease of summer days and freedom and seeing all my friends back at school. As a parent it seems to be much of the same feelings. Torn between the lazy, relaxed days of summer and the schedule and routine of school. I think the only good thing about back to school is probably the shopping part. That, I can always get into! The smell of fresh new school supplies and clothes. The excitement of finding out who your teacher is for the school year. Now, that my friends, brings back good memories. Ask me a week into school and that newness would have quickly worn off and the grind of the school year would be in full force!

Here, in the great land of Minnesota, we have a few weeks before school actually hits. It’s a state law that public schools can’t start until after Labor Day so we get to make the most out of summer! Pretty awesome right? Other than the fact that then we don’t get long spring breaks or any of that fun! As a kid I was a bit jealous of people that would get a week off in the spring. It seems like about that time of the year you really didn’t think that school would ever get over. Anyone remember that?

I, of course, need a sweet treat to celebrate the first day of school when the kids come home from school! That’s why I made you this decadent Skinny Strawberry Banana Ice Box Cake. Can you believe it’s the first Ice Box cake that I’ve ever made? It’s a little bit embarrassing since I quickly learned how easy they were! I think I’ve been missing out here. Plus they look impressive so you look like a rock star and I’m all for helping you look like a rock star! I lightened up this dessert for you with the help of my friends over at Silk by using Silk Vanilla Cashew Milk in the pudding. Layer on the bananas, strawberries and lighter versions of pudding, graham crackers and Cool Whip and you have an awesome “Skinny” version of this terrific treat!

    Love cashew milk! It’s a close second to almond milk in our household. Love this strawberry banana icebox cake-the kiddos will go nuts for this one for sure!

  • Thao @ In Good Flavor


    Great job on your first ice box cake, Julie! It looks delicious! This is the kind of cake I can really put a big dent in because it is light and not so rich and sugary.

  • Julianne @ Beyond Frosting


    Skinny desserts?! Yes please!

  • Linda


    I don’t see the calories on the desserts?

  • tanya


    My kids would love it if they didn’t start until after Labor Day! Those extra two weeks would give us more time to eat this beautiful ice box cake!

  • Dwaine Morgan


    On the strawberry banana ice box cake. It cost for 1 ounce box of sugar free vanilla pudding. I do not find a 1 ounce box of pudding mix is this a correct amount for the ingredient?

    • Julie Evink


      Hey Dwaine! I emailed you about this so check your email too!

    HI JULIE…MADE THE ICE BOX CAKE REGARDLESS OF THE CONFUSION ABOUT THE SIZE OF THE SUGAR FREE PACKAGE. USED THE 1 OZ SIZE, DIDN’T HAVE ENOUGH FOR THE TOP LAYER, SO MADE THE REGULAR INSTANT VANILLA PUDDING, USING 1 CUP REGULAR MILK, AND 1 CUP OF THE CASHEW VANILLA MILK. IT WAS A HUGE HIT. I NOW HAVE A NEW RECIPE TO BE ‘KNOWN’ FOR. KEEP PICKING AND SHARING WINNERS. THANKS SO MUCH, CATHY BARREIRO
