May 16/17 Strawberry Whipped Sensation **

I got this recipe from:

  • 4 cups fresh strawberries, divided
  • 1 can (14 oz.) EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tub (8 oz.) COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed, divided
  • 8 OREO Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. butter, melted

  • LINE 9x5-inch loaf pan with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides of pan. Mash 2 cups of the strawberries in large bowl. Add condensed milk, juice and 2 cups of the whipped topping; mix well. Pour into prepared pan.
  • MIX chopped cookies and butter. Spoon over whipped topping mixture. Cover with ends of foil and gently press cookie mixture into whipped topping mixture. Freeze 6 hours or until firm.
  • INVERT dessert onto serving plate when ready to serve; remove pan and foil. Spread remaining whipped topping onto top and sides of dessert. Slice remaining 2 cups strawberries; arrange over dessert. Store leftovers in freezer.

  • Comments: In some of the reviews they said this dessert was too sweet, so I really really cut back on the sweetened condensed milk, like I think I put in 1/8 of a cup. And now reading over the recipe I totally forgot the lemon juice and also totally forgot the butter to mix with the oreos, which totally resolves my only complaint which was that the crust was pretty crumbly. This was a really tasty and easy dessert but you have to think about it way ahead of time, which I am not good at. I also used all of my strawberries in the middle layer, so I topped with oreos instead of strawberries, that was a good choice!

    Two and a half stars!
