Red, White and Blue Cheesecake Salad


Red, White and Blue Cheesecake Salad comes together so easy with fresh fruit and a rich and creamy cheesecake filling to create the most glorious fruit salad ever! Every bite is absolutely bursting with summer 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 


I absolutely love fresh fruit and I am completely hooked on fruit salad. With summer right around the corner and fresh berries calling to me at the market, I could think of nothing more perfect than a berry banana fruit salad. But, not just any fruit salad. A cheesecake salad.

Rich and creamy cheesecake filling made with cream cheese, pudding and my favorite creamer. The creamer lends a richness and creaminess to the cheesecake filling and the perfect touch of sweetness. The filling is folded into fresh strawberries, blueberries and bananas to create the most amazing red, white and blue fruit salad you have ever eaten. Memorial Day weekend is the official launch of summer, but I tell you I am way ahead of you.

I am stocking up on summer salad ideas and boy oh boy do we have a good selection to choose from. Summer Berry Cheesecake Salad, Strawberry Banana Cheesecake Salad, and Hawaiian Cheesecake Salad are three of our favorites!!!

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

Red, White and Blue Creesecake 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, cut into bite-size pieces
2 (6-ounce) containers blueberries
4 large bananas, sliced
juice of 1 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. Refrigerate while you prepare the fruit.

In a large bowl, combine lemon juice and bananas. Stir to coat bananas completely and pour off any excess lemon juice. Add strawberries and blueberries. Gently stir to combine. Fold the cheesecake mixture into the fruit.

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 wonder if it would work and be easier to whip the 1 cup of creamer with the dry pudding mix and then add it to the whipped up cream cheese? Perhaps that would also help avoid the possible lumps you mentioned? Just a thought.

  3. After comparing the similar recipes for the different cheesecake fruit salads, I notice this one is the only one that calls for the pudding mix.

    Do you think the mixture with the pudding mix is better than the others that only use cream cheese and creamer?

    Which blend do you recommend?
