No-Bake Patriotic Dessert Lasagna

Whether you’re celebrating July 4th or just looking for a delicious summer dessert, you’ll want to make this no-bake red velvet patriotic dessert lasagna.

This flag is nearly anatomically correct with 13 strips representing the original 13 colonies and nearly the correct number of blueberries for the 50 states – there’s only 49. But if you can overlook that minor glitch, this easy no-bake dessert should appear at several events this summer with COPA American currently underway (USA plays Argentina tomorrow), July 4th around the corner, and the Olympics in August. Or make it on any random day and just chuck the berries on top.

But for those of you looking to celebrate our nation, as an added bonus there are red velvet Oreos inside, continuing the red and white strips theme. Heck yea red velvet Oreos! And layered between them is a cheesecake-like filling because nothing pairs better with red velvet than cream cheese.

I actually served this yesterday when we had friends over to cookout and then watch the basketball final game #7 which ended with one of my Cleveland-born friends running out of my house screaming with excitement. It was absolutely hilarious and you better believe we captured it on video.

Serves 24



3 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, room temperature

1 cup powdered sugar

1 cup heavy cream

1 tsp vanilla extract

16 oz. frozen whipped topping, thawed

3 (12.2 oz.) boxes red velvet Oreos


8 oz. frozen whipped topping, thawed

Fresh strawberries, sliced

Fresh blueberries


  1. Prepare the filling: In a medium mixing bowl, whip together cream cheese, powdered sugar, heavy cream and vanilla. Whip for 2-3 minutes until fully combined and smooth. Add the thawed whipped topping 8 ounces at a time. Continue to whip until fluffy and light. Set aside.
  2. In a 9 x 13 inch dish place one layer of Oreos. Spread 1/3 of the filling mixture over the Oreos. Gently press the next layer of Oreos into the filling and repeat, ending with the final third of the filling.
  3. Frost with whipped topping and top with the sliced strawberries and blueberries to resemble the flag.
  4. Chill for at least 4-6 hours before cutting into 24 squares.

I see you mention chocolate chips but I don’t see it as a part of the ingredients. How much chocolate chips do we need for the recipe.

Oops that’s a typo as I adapted this from one of my recipes that did use chocolate chips. No chocolate needed! I fixed the recipe to reflect this.

There’s no way I’ll ever be making this cake, but I love what you wrote in this post. Anatomically correct flag? :-) And did you happen to see the Chile/Mexico game? I’m looking for Chile to beat Argentina in the finals. My stepson said that Chile played well enough in that game with Mexico, that they could win the world cup. I had no idea you were a soccer fan. I’ve learned to enjoy the game since I’m married to a soccer referee.

What, no hope for the US to beat Argentina tonight!? Granted, I am sure that is a safe assumption but I gotta have hope that someday we can win! And oh yes, I have played soccer since a child. Not so much these days but I still enjoy watching it. P.S. Check out my other awesomely patriotic soccer cake:
