Berry Cheesecake Salad
Juicy, sweet and refreshing. Light and luscious strawberry yogurt, cool whip and cheesecake pudding make up this delicious salad with an array of fresh fruits.
If you’re looking for the next side dish or dessert to pass at a party, we have you covered. This cheesecake salad has been a family favorite for years. You may even hear it go by the name fluff salad. It’s the same great dish and their are so many different ways to change this dish up.
This fruit salad has a lot of fresh and satisfying ingredients that will satisfy your taste buds.
Now that summer is approaching, it’s the perfect time to use up the fruit after going to farmer’s markets and strawberry fields. I love being able to find a fresh array of seasonal fruits at the farmer’s market. In summer, you will find me there at least once a week and I wish I could go more. In winter, you’ll find me googling farmer market’s in Mexico. It brings me so much happiness to see all sorts of sweet fruits. In this recipe, I’ve used four of my favorite fruits to celebrate summer with.
This recipe is incredibly easy to prepare and can be made ahead of any party or summer BBQ.
To make this recipe, in a large bowl combine whipped cream, strawberry yogurt and cheesecake pudding. Whisk mixture together until it’s mixed well with no lumps.
Wash fruit and slice strawberries and banana. Pat dry raspberries and blueberries. Add fruit to cheesecake mixture and gently fold in. Fold in mini marshmallows and mix well. Refrigerate cheesecake salad until ready to serve.
The benefits to eating fruit are incredible not to mention it’s nice to enjoy something cold and refreshing during the hot summer. If you’re not a strawberry fan, you should be! Strawberries boost immunity, fight wrinkles, fight bad cholesterol, reduce inflammation, regulate blood pressure, aid in weight management and may help to prevent cancer.
Blueberries are said to soften dry skin, boost the brain by improving mental health, lower blood pressure, maintain healthy bones, help manage diabetes; just to name a few benefits.
Raspberries are one of my favorite fruits because they are so delicious! They are anti-oxidant rich and considered a super food. This beautiful fruit is rich in vitamins and minerals and can help control weight, lower the risk of cancer, heart disease and enhance fertility.
Bananas are incredibly healthy. In fact, they aid digestion, pack a lot of fiber, relieve acid reflux, mood-enhancer, control blood sugar, protect against free radicals, protect the eyes, and control appetite. Eating a banana rich in potassium can also make you more alert.
