Hawaiian Cheesecake Salad (With Video)



Hawaiian Cheesecake Salad comes together so simply with fresh tropical fruit and a rich and creamy cheesecake filling to create the most glorious fruit salad ever! Every bite is absolutely bursting with island flavor and you are going to go nuts over this recipe!

We are so excited to be partnering with International Delight®  to bring you another fabulous recipe. I don't know about you, but I love my coffee so I always have creamer in the house. I have found this to be an amazing convenient ingredient in cooking and baking sweets. So, of course when I started thinking about creamy fruit salad I thought of International Delight.

RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM 



Ever since Chad and I have been together we have celebrated every special occasion with his family. My family lives across the country so we never even gave it a second thought. Anyway, as I was saying we spend every holiday with his family and there are a few dishes that you will find at every event we attend. Gigi's apple salad. It is a family tradition. It is fruit mixed with whipped cream and it is delightful. A few years ago it got me thinking.

What if I combined cheesecake and fruit to create an over the top decadent cheesecake salad? Well, I did and I have to tell you it is the most amazing decadent fruit salad ever. I loved it so much I have created several versions and even created one in our new cookbook: The Simple Kitchen. Available for pre-order now!

I am planning for Easter dinner this weekend which is my holiday to host. I started thinking about the fruit salad that I would choose. Summer Berry Cheesecake Salad, Strawberry Banana Cheesecake Salad, and  Snickers Caramel Apple Cheesecake Salad are three of our favorites but I got to thinking about the scrumptious ham that we will be enjoying and then it hit me. I combined my favorite tropical fruit with a rich and creamy cheesecake filling to create our newest cheesecake salad sensation and you are going to love it!!!

=================================================================

Hawaiian Cheesecake Salad
SERVES 16  |  ACTIVE TIME 15 Min  |  TOTAL TIME 15 Min

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
1 (3.4-ounce) package instant cheesecake pudding, unprepared
1 cup International Delight French Vanilla Creamer
1 pound strawberries, hulled and sliced
4 mandarin oranges, peeled and sectioned
1 (20-ounce) can pineapple tidbits, drained
3 kiwi, peeled and cut into half moons
2 mangoes, cut into bite size chunks
1 banana, cut into coins
juice of 1/2 lemon

In a medium tall bowl (I use my 8 cup measuring cup), using an electric mixer, whip cream cheese until it becomes smooth. It may bind up in the beaters, but continue as is and it will loosen up. Add the dry pudding mix. Beat until well combined.

With the mixer on low, slowly add the creamer to the cream cheese mix. Add it about a tablespoon at a time and then mix until it becomes a smooth mixture and all of the creamer has combined into the cream cheese, repeat until all of the creamer has been added to the mixture. Whip until smooth.


In a large bowl, combine strawberries, oranges, pineapple, kiwi and mango. Add the cheesecake mixture to the fruit. Gently fold cheesecake mixture into fruit. In a small bowl combine the banana coins and the lemon juice. Toss until well coated, drain the excess lemon juice. Gently fold the banana into the cheesecake salad.

Chill until ready to serve or serve immediately.

DONNA'S NOTES: Do not pour all of the creamer into the cream cheese at once. It will get clumpy and no matter how long you beat it, it will stay that way. Trust me on this one.

To make this ahead: prepare the cheesecake mixture and refrigerate in a bowl. Mix all of the fruit in a large bowl and refrigerate. Before serving, drain any excess liquid from the fruit and then fold the cheesecake filling into the fruit. Serve and enjoy!

  2. I'm going to try this but I'm trying to limit the processed foods so even though I'll use the pudding mix I think I'll use some whipping cream and vanilla bean instead of the cream substitute

    1. If you are out of creamer you can substitute 1 cup heavy cream, 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. I hope that helps. Enjoy and let us know how it goes.

  9. Does anyone know the nutrition value of this recipe. It looks amazing but also high in calories.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Not if you using light cream cheese and non fat international delight. There are ways around reducing calories you know!!

      Delete
    2. Look at the nutrition info for each item used....

      Delete
    3. I'd love to know too! I'm diabetic and would love to know the carb count. I wish they had the nutritional info on all recipes. I'm not good at figuring things out!

      Delete
    4. Was wondering that to. Calories etc

      Delete
    5. Using the substitutions for the creamer that was stated above, I calculated about 135 calories per serving. 1.6g of protein, 21.6g of carbs, and 5.1g of fat for each serving. Hope this helps! :)

    6. International Delight is also available sugar free.

      Delete
  10. Use room temperature cream cheese.
    Instead of a mixer, I suggest a blender or immersion blender. I finder is is easier to combine the cream cheese mixture and no clumps.

    1. also have the creamer at room temp helps alot

  11. Can I do this as a trifle will the mixture hold up correctly

    1. The way mine came out it would definitley make a great trifle custard.

      Delete
  12. Instead of having to buy both French vanilla and vanilla flavored can just vanilla be used?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I am making this and wondering how thick the cheesecake filling is supposed to be? The pic looks like it's pretty runny but mine isn't ... Any help??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. From my past experiences mixing fruit with something similar to this, the juice that's in the fruit often makes it runny. Did yours stay thick even after being mixed with fruit?

      Delete
  14. Is the creamer the powder version or the liquid version? Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The bottle that's in the picture is a liquid creamer, so my guess is that's what she used. I wouldn't use a powder version for this. But that's just me giving my opinion.

      Delete
    2. It said 1 cup French vanilla creamer. Read the recipe. It's all listed.

      Delete
    3. Liquid!!!!!

      Delete
  15. Your cream mixture is liquid looking of the fruit. Mine is like a clump of dough. What did I do wrong?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I had the same problem, I think it should have been a 1 oz box of pudding

      Delete
    2. Make sure you use the right size box of pudding. It shouldn't be like dough.

  17. I made this vegan with Diaya cream cheese substitute and almond milk. I'm not vegan but dairy doesn't like me, lol. It was still really good. I brought it to a potluck at work and no one knew it was dairy-free until I told them!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Followed the recipe to the T, with the exception of using Delmonte jarred mango and jarred mandarin oranges. Let them drain in a strainer for an hour. It was still very runny. The misxture was very liquidy. Only wonder if I should have used less creamer, to allow for the juice from the fruit? Over all good flavor, a bit strange in the texture.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I made this as one of the sides for Easter Dinner. It was a huge hit, everyone loved it. I'm sure this will go on my family's most requested list. Thank you for another great recipe.

  20. Sounds wonderful....adding coconut and pecans or walnuts would work wonders for this Southern Texas girl....

  21. I made the recipe with figure friendly choices. FF cream cheese, FF half and half with vanilla flavoring, and sugar free cheesecake pudding mix. What a hit!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Making this very soon! Though I cannot use the creamer. Too many artificial ingredients,a couple that does not agree with me,sadly. So will try half&half and vanilla or Sweetened condensed milk. Love fruit salads! Great for gatherings! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I would add shredded coconut to this! Can't wait to try!

    ReplyDelete
  24. How long leftovers keep in refrig

    ReplyDelete
  25. I can tell you why the cream cheese stays lumpy when you add the creamer too fast. I learned the hard way trying to make a cheesecake in a hurry. If you leave the cream cheese set out until it is room temperature, it won't lump up. If I had listened, it wouldn't have happened to me.

  38. Have you tried mixing the creamer and pudding then adding it to the cream cheese? It came out good but it was kind of a pain working with the cream cheese and pudding doughy mixture until everything was mixed in, I have a hand mixer and had to constantly stop beating it to scrape down the dough from reaching the top and making a mess

  40. Excellent recipe! Only sub I did was use Nestle French Vanilla (much cheaper). I let the cream cheese and creamer come to room temperature before starting the mixing process. Yes, add creamer slowly!!! I'm going to put the pudding mixture into graham cracker shells and top with the fruit next time Or mix it all up and put into parfait cups and top with graham cracker crumbs. Very good, and somewhat healthy...

  41. I Made it last night for a birthday party we are attending today. The store had no cheesecake pudding so I used vanilla. I also substituted 2 cans of mandarin oranges for fresh, don't think I'll add bananas. Anyway, I stirred it all together this morning and took a taste a few hours later, I must say, It's very tasty!

    ReplyDelete
  42. has anyone tried it with all fresh fruit? I want to try it but how do I allow for the extra juice that comes from pineapple ? Oh and try it with white chocolate pudding from jello.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Ohh shaved coconuts on top would be a nice garnish or macadamia nuts crushed on top .. Yummm

    ReplyDelete
  44. I also added coconut. If I make it again I'll make the dressing from cream cheese, cream, sweetener and vanilla. Pudding mix gave it the flavor of cake batter.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Is delicious! Even used fresh pineapple and Halos instead of canned mandarin oranges. Yummy!!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I tried this recipe for a dinner party, it was a huge success. I had to copy the recipe for most of the guests. I've also made it again last week and gave some to the neighbors who couldn't get enough. I did add coconut and blue berries. Simply delicious.
