layered dessert - kay haupt
Hello, friends!


Who else out there has a lactose intolerance issue? I've never been diagnosed, but whenever I drink milk or eat ice cream... well, I won't go into the details. Even though this is something that I live with everyday, and often cheat upon, I just cannot resist ice cream! You know, the hand scooped kind from the little shop down the street. Sooooo good! I cave and instantly regret it.


I am here with a solution! This yummy layered dessert was my mom's go to when I was growing up. It satisfied my cravings for ice cream, and there was even some tasty fruit and graham cracker crust to boot! I am ADDICTED to graham cracker crust. Yum! 


Let's eat! 


  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 2 cups crushed graham crackers
  • 3 bananas, sliced
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup strawberries, dived
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 8 oz package cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • almonds for garnish 
  • cherry to top


Melt one stick of the butter over the stove. Mix it in with the graham crackers. In 4 mason jars, press the crust into the bottom and stick in the freezer for at least 10 minutes.

With a stand mixer, cream together the 1/4 cup of butter, cream cheese, and powdered sugar.

After the crust has solidified, layer it with the cream cheese filling, bananas, blueberries, strawberries, and then more filling.

Sprinkle the top with almonds and top with a cherry! SO fast and easy.


I hope you enjoy this perfect summer dessert. A go-to, for sure! (:


xoxo Kayla
