How to make Whipped Strawberry Sensation
This recipe has been our family favorite and my son will ask for this frozen dessert every chance he gets, be it his birthday, dinner party or friends visiting from out of town. This is such a super easy recipe that your tweens/teens can make it on their own & surprise their family members. In fact, my son started off with assisting me in the kitchen just cos' he has a sweet tooth and I am now convinced that one day he will be able to cook for himself.
This recipe is from a magazine clipping that I had saved years ago. I also learned from a friend that this is also an old recipe and was made by whipping up heavy cream. By using Cool Whip, we can cut down on time spent in making the dessert. It is also a make-ahead dessert, to save you time. Sharing this quick & easy recipe with my fellow bloggers at CCC# 54: Mar Week 1.
Prep time: 20 mins
Freezing time: 6 hours
Servings: 12 slices
4 cups fresh strawberries, divided
1 can (14oz) of sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tub (8 oz) COOL WHIP whipped topping, thawed, divided
8 to 10 OREO chocolate sandwich cookies, finely chopped/ground
3 tbsp butter, melted
- Line 8x4 inch loaf pan with foil.
- Powder the OREO's using a food processor or chop/crush finely. Mix in the melted butter and set aside.
- Mash or finely chop 2 cups of strawberries and add them to a large bowl. Stir in condensed milk, lemon juice and 2 cups of the COOL WHIP, pour into the foil-lined pan.
- Top with combined chopped cookies & butter; press into the mixture and cover/wrap tightly.
- Freeze at least 6 hours. To serve, invert onto a plate. Remove foil. Frost with remaining COOL WHIP. Top with remaining strawberries (sliced) and serve immediately.
- Best served at once. If you need to refreeze, you can do so without the strawberries on top.
- Can be made-ahead, except for the strawberry topping.
- Make sure it is stored in the freezer in an air-tight container, so it doesn't absorb other odors.
